SSOC with denial.


 I am a little frustrated with an SSOC I just received.  I had a case remanded at the CAVC due to the BVA not properly using my Drs statements.  At the CAVC the DAV lawyer and VA agreeed evidence was not properly used.  

The SSOC says the claim will be denied because the opinions from the new C and P.  They state two opinions.   I saw one Dr for three minutes. 

The case involves esophagus stricture currently at 50% should be 80%.

See attached ssoc

any help would be appreciated.  I have 30 days to submit more evidence.

If you already have this S.C. AND RATED AT 50% ?

 For an increase or possible IU , you will need a Dr (Specialist) he will need to opine that  you can't work b/c of this condition , he basically needs to say your condition is chronic and severe  ....and opine  about the Liquids as well ,your going to need a good IMO  (Specialist) to give his opinion that this condition is severe just the opposite of what the C&P Examiner mention.

Now  you know how they want this medically worded.. Dr (specialist) if he can give his opine about your condition, resubmit as new  & m evidence

Your going to need a Specialist to help you on this!

A SOC, or SSOC is always a denial.   Otherwise they award benefits and there is no point continuing the appeal.  Count on VA to conjure up a bogus denial, and hope you are too sick, too old, or just dont care to continue the appeal, or that you will file the I 9 to late or not at all.  It means you need to file an I9, appeal to the BVA.  It probably should so state.  You may NOT have to refile the I9 if you have already filed it and especially if you submitted new evidence.  Thats probably why you got the SSOC..you appealed and submittted new evidence.  This shouls always result in a SSOC OR an award of benefits.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
