I would say if this keeps you from working it will depend on what the C&P Examiner marks x in what box?...or if your private Dr is a specialist  then ask the VA to use his report  as for as the echo exam.

I'm not sure what the criteria is  but if your already rating for CAD...Then go back to your award letter and see  there reason and bases for the 70% and compare  it to the new evidence of the echo exam you have with these two Dr's

you can see if your CAD as got worse   ...and if it shows to be worse  then you should get increase. depends on how much worse?..they have a chart to rate that by the #'s   looking at those # I say maybe a 10% Increase.


I don't know what the #'s are?   ..I'd need to do some research.

if this keeps you from working  I'd say they will probably give you a 10%/20% and get you a combined rating of 80% or 90%   unless this warrants a 100% schedule rating?

...but since or if it keeps you from working  and you have a Dr to state that...they will give the IU to you using the extra scheduler.38 4.17 (b) or the 100% scheduler rating

    • 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.
