Imo From Medopinions - Going For It!

Recommended Posts

I am so sorry to run this in the ground.

I need to know exactly what I need to sent to this group. I did the research on the IMO, but I couldn't find much to help me.

When we speak of SMR'S- do I need to sent my dental records, as this is costing me. If I only sent 150 sheets, they will lower their price to $2000 and not the original $2900.

Do I sent a copy of my DD-214?

My niece, the DRO, said to send everything in my claims file. I haven't the foggest ideal of what all they have in that file.

Do I sent the remand from the BVA?

The letter from the AMC?

Copies of the two C&P examinations by the Va?

A copy of my Pension- denied due to excessive, but states total disabiltiy to 1983 due to anxiety with depression and headaches?

As for my medications since 1965, I can't possibly go to any druggist and get an itemized list, but they are written as prescribed by my three doctors. Is this good enough? This is what the Va. used.

I have all of my medical records from Navy and all of my administrative records, all of my private medical records from 1965 to date.

Have I forgotten anything?

This sure makes the anxiety come out in me.

Thanks so much,

Always,

Josephine

Who are you sending the info too?

You could make copies at a copy store for about 20 to 40 bucks.

Pete53,

I saw their advertisement at the heading of this site.www.medopinions.com. There is a link at the top of the had-it page.

I am assuming they are reputable since they advertise on this site?

I don't mind paying for the copies.

I am going to over night it to them.

I am running out of time. The AMC has told me my file is complete and ready to rate.

This time, they will probably mean it.

Thanks,

Josephine

You have a current copy of your C-File, right? If you have a copy of the C-File and your SMR's and private medical records that is what I would send. Your C-File contains all the records of your claims and appeals. You are asking for IU or 100% disability are you not? It would be worth spending the money for 100% compensation. You will make it up within a couple of months.

John 999,

I wrote a letter to the Roanoke Office about two years ago and all I received was my medical and dental records. No, I do not have my complete C-file, as they would not let me have a copy.

I have the record of filing in 1978, but it was never adjudicated.

Do I sent a Psychiatrist all those Statement of the Case? What will he do with those things?

I have the pension to non - service connected - You are unable to secure and follow a substantialy gainful occupation. You are 59 years old and have a level of education reported as high school and worked last in 1983. The eveidence shows you to be disabled due to the disabilites of chronic anxiety/depression, headaches, diabetes, hypothyroidsim, vestibular condition, inner ear condition.

What am I now?

This is what I ask for service connected due to anxiety with depression with associated headaches to my original filing date of 1978 by New and Material Evidence never acquired by the Veterans Affairs. This would be my reason for filing ( my complete psychiatric records and the letter from my commanding officer for the reason for my early discharge). The BVA does acknowledge this.

Thanks,

Josephine

    • Sleep apnea- does the DBQ cover the "medically necessary/required" language?
      Hey everybody! Long time lurker, first time poster.

      My question is regarding the sleep apnea language that specifies that a prescription of a breathing assistance device is "medically necessary" for a 50% rating:

      Assuming that a vet is already prescribed a CPAP/APAP by the VA, does the sleep apnea DBQ portion under 2B "IS CONTINUOUS MEDICATION REQUIRED FOR CONTROL OF A SLEEP DISORDER CONDITION?" fulfill that language requirement?

    • VBA testimony and GAO report-C & P examiners
      As you all know, C & P exam results control almost all types of claims. VA employees have no choice but to go along with a negative C & P exam that will deny a claim. Some vets are quite willing to rebutt faulty exams and ask for a new C & P exam. For others, it will take a costly IMO/IME in most cases.

    • Lumbosacral Strain and Vertebrae fractures caused by osteopenia
      Hi.  I have a couple questions and welcome all recommendations for my disability claim.  I am currently 10% disabled for lumbosacral strain and deferred decision for this and vertebrae fractures caused by osteopenia.  I had a MRI February 2018 and results include moderate compression fracture of L1, mild to moderate compression fracture of L2, moderate to severe compression fracture of L3, mild compression fracture of T11.  Additionally, L3 moderate spinal canal stenosis, L2 mild to moderate retropulsion with mild spinal canal stenosis, multilevel degenerative changes, multilevel disc bulges, disc herniations, L1-L2 mild broad-based disc bulge with mild spinal canal stenosis, L2-L3 mild broad based disc bulge with mild to moderate spinal canal stenosis,  L3-L4 mild to moderate broad based disc bulge and severe bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing.   I have read that these malfunctions should have been claimed individually.  Will the VA evaluate/rate each condition separately?  If not, I may have to appeal or submit a new claim.  What are some thoughts and suggestions.  Do these disabilities belong in the lumbosacral strain or the vertebrae fractures caused by osteopenia.  I am totally in the dark on this stuff.  I am pretty sure no diagnosis codes have been assigned.  What can I do to support my claim?  HELP!!!!!

      I'd love it if we all got along, no one had a bad day and everyone respected each other however, living in the real world it just doesn't work that way.
