  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

C&P Results Question

Question

Just looked up my C&P exam results from Wednesday (6 Sept). Trying to figure out the results. It seems there may be an error in the first "B" and "C". Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.

 

TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR DIRECT SERVICE

CONNECTION ]

 

b. The condition claimed was less likely than not (less than 50%

probability) incurred in or caused by the claimed in-service injury, event

or illness.

 

c. Rationale: Based on interview and examination of the Veteran, review of

the Veteran's VBMS case file, review of the Veteran's VHA medical

records, and review of relevant medical references the Veteran's LEFT hips

conditions as described in the Hip Conditions DBQ are as least likely as not (50% or

greater probability) incurred during his military service as documented as

complaints of LEFT hip pain & assessment of LEFT iliotibial band syndrome

are documented in his STRs. As directed nexus is reasonably demonstrated the

secondary nexus question proximally is rendered moot.

 

 

TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR SECONDARY SERVICE

CONNECTION ]

 

a. The condition claimed is at least as likely as not (50% or greater

probability) proximately due to or the result of the Veteran's service

connected condition.

 

c. Rationale: Based on interview and examination of the Veteran, review of

the Veteran's VBMS case file, review of the Veteran's VHA medical

records, and review of relevant medical references the Veteran does not have current

symptoms of plantar fasciitits. His current symptoms are attributable to

LEFT cuboid syndrome. The Veteran's LEFT cuboid syndrome is as likely as not

(50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the result of leg length

discrepancy due to altered gait biomechanics caused by the leg length

discrepancy.

I would take a guess they rate you at 50% and possibly 60%

the 60% from this, but I could be totally wrong on what this EXAMINER WAS THINKING.

''LEFT cuboid syndrome. The Veteran's LEFT cuboid syndrome is as likely as not

(50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the result of leg length

discrepancy due to altered gait biomechanics caused by the leg length

discrepancy.''

Thanks Buck. I was a little perplexed on the first opinion (hip) where he says "less likely than not" in para "b" and then "as least likely as not" in para "c".

I answered a different post from you today somewhere here -but  please disregard it-----I thought it was a possible grant for plantar faciititis- but this is a different C & P exam.

It is a better exam anyhow than the other one was. They should SC the left  leg disability. And any leg disability can cause a major foot disability. or even a bilateral foot disability.

Well.....claim is complete. Was hoping for a little more but at least they were all service comp. Not sure how I will proceed. Is the best option a "reconsideration" ? Does that have to be done within 60 days? I am preparing to have an "independent medical examination" before anything.

    • 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.
