  • 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

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.

      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
