    employment 2.jpeg

Someone answered your question yesterday, in a different post. They gave the link to the DBQs.

Has VA ever given you a Nsc diagnostic code yet for your condition? (  One for heart and one for HBP?)

reason I ask is that hypertensive vascular disease can involve cardiac vascular disease.

This is a brief but good article on hypertensive cardiovascular disease.

Do you have an inservice nexus?

Hello all, I am 10 % SCD for Hypertension. I have had a history of high blood pressure and High cholesterol.Last year I had 2 stent's put in my heart after taking the Nuclear stress test. I do not know of any codes the VA put in my records. I was at 0% SCD when I got out of the military and was increased to 10% a few years ago. My doctor asked me if I ever submitted a claim for Hypertensive Vascular Disease-Service Connected and I said I never thought about it.She I should submit it.  I just recently submitted for this through my VSO.  Any feedback on if I will receive a C&P and what to expect.Please reply back.

Is your "my Doctor" a VMC Cardiologist, get a copy of the Dr's Treatment Notes from your MHV and attach as a pdf to your FDC. Should Seal the Deal.

How about posting a redacted copy of the Clinician Treatment Notes for the day she made the statement regarding filing the claim.

After the Stents, you were temporary 100%. right? Did you get a New or Increase Cardiac SC after the Temporary 100% Comp increase?

Hello All, I was not rated a 100% after my stents. My primary care doctor suggested I file a claim for my stents due to it being related to Hypertension. Please reply all.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
