Question

So I recently spoke to my RO in Philly and i spoke with someone I have been in contact with since my DRO hearing in 2015. I called him and said I spoke with QTC and they said they no more examiners in Delaware and I would have to  travel to Philadelphia for my exam. He said no you don't submit in writing you wish to close your request with QTC and wish to have it moved to VES who has lots of Delaware examiners. So that's what I did and then called QTC and said send request back to the VA the lady was like what's the reason I said I'm not going to drive to Philly with my wife from Delaware she said well you know there's a 2 year backlog for TBI reviews and you are suppose to drive at least 50 miles for exam I said you keep thinking that send it back. She put me on hold for ten minutes came back said it's done I was glad to hang up. Still angry I called the guy again he said she's wrong this isn't an initial claim this is just a review for another claimed issue nothing to do with your TBI that's P and T. So I can expect from VES at the most about two weeks he said.  QTC are just another cover for delays Questionable Touchy Comments go riddance anyone else have a similiar of experience...

My regional office called me today too because QTC hadn't scheduled me after they called me months ago and I told them I would not see a male provider for a gyn exam.  They didn't even have any female providers they could find.  She said she would call me back and never did.  I called the VA 1800 number and no one ever called me, so I have sat waiting, today finally they are scheduling me at the VA for my last 2 deferred CP exams.  I am already PT but these will close my crap and be done!!  I hate QTC they are idiots.

Wish I knew I don't even wait for the call or letters paronia has driven me mad I googled QTC or VES once I know which one it says was requested on ebenefits call right away and schedule with QTC I kept calling back to reschedule with someone close to me so I call the RO they told me right a letter like I described and they'll make it happen making anyone drive long distance and said anyone can do it if they call VES and they say they have someone closer in a timeframe they feel is quick enough. So mad at that woman I said I'm not an idiot I know it won't take two years this is for a remanded appeal. She was quick to jump at me but had no response to that other then let me put you on hold.... ok it's done,  I hate ignorant people that make their own facts up I've called out many employees at the VA on BS helping other Vets and hey Seminoles they may outsource it again but I'd call VES see they have woman Doctors in your area. I actually went to RO office just to see the worker who runs my claim like I said crazy I am but my little ticks gets me by. It's so easy now you can just submit a letter into your claim requesting it's with VES if you called and know they have doctors who can get you in sooner then they can. Crazy how my obsessed lifestyle has gotten me with the VA just need a break for the family/ wife who I love so much.

It will all be over and done soon and you can relax, I am much like you, even though I am 100% PT that open bits drive me nuts and I just want it all closed and done.  Best wishes and we can both have a huge sigh of relief that much of our headache is over soon.  The fight is never truly over as we have lost so much and our lives are never the same, but we have our families and that is all that truly matters.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
