    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

Dear Veteran

Im not sure what your queston is, But I read something about a medical opnion being submitted latter. Leagally you can however the pratice of the VA and maybe the federal court is to prematurely throw claims out. They do this due to lack of medical evidence. The medical evidence they are indirectly asking for is a medical examinaton. This puts you in a catch 22. They demand a medical opnion but due to the fact the claim was prematurly thrown out they wont give you an examinaton. I would get your claim ready as if it was gong to court tommrow. Have everythng before them so they cant close you down and then refuse you the hoops you are required to jump through.

I think also having a medical opnion before a judge other then your own legal briefs will allow the judge to read and opnion about your case other than from the claimant. The courts get allot of crazy cases and yours will look allot like the others unless you have actual evedence before the court.

The Statute of Limits is up two years after your knowledge of the malpractice-on tort claims.

FTCAs must be filed before that 2 year period is up-

I know Otey answered this well for you-

Send the SF 95 to Regional Counsel who has jurisdiction over your VAMC and a copy to General Counsel in Washington DC.

The IMO can be sent in later.

PS Chief- when you state the basis of the tort claim on the SF 95 it is good idea to state that the medical treatment you received from VA did not conform to standards of the usual medical community.
