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.

    • 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.
