You would need a strong medical opinion from an independent doctor to determine whether the lung condition is secondary to the CAD.

With the 100% you have now, it could be secondary to any other SC disability you have as well.....but the key word there is "could" and that too would need an IMO/IME.

If he is an incountry Vietnam vet with SC for CAD ( IHD-Nehmer ) his 10% rating might  probably be way too low,if it derives from an older rating decision..

The VA changed their heart disease ratings some years ago, and that influenced some retro IHD ratings under Nehmer.

Can he join us here?

I recently filed for disability for IHD as well as several other items.  I read alot here about the retro for Nehmer, I still don't really understand it.  Does it apply only to those who filed claims and were denied? Also filed for TYPEII, PC and tinnitus.  I was boots on ground in 66-67, watched them spray this crap from our perimeter.  This is my first claim so I'm just sitting and waiting at the moment.  Love this forum!  Jim

Footnote one is explained here and in many discussions as well in the AO forum:

It only applies to Nehmer 2010.

The favorable EED of Nehmer 2010  rests on a past denial of IHD,(CAD) or Hairy Cell B, or Parkinsons in a past VA decision.

I think I posted one of  Rick Spataro's email to me in this link.

He is the NVLSP head Nehmer lawyer and I checked in with him many times to make sure

I had explained Footnote One correctly here as it was the most important part of Nehmer III.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
