      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.


      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?


      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?



      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?

      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?



      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

PTSD Re-exam after two years of being 70%

Question

What is required or to submit to keep the 70% PTSD if and when I may get called into a PTSD Dairy C&P?  (note:) I am not asking for increase!

What evidence Do they want? progress notes off myhealthyvet? 

Treatment sessions for two years? 

Will they take older records that I submitted for the original claim?

I think they may want to see if my PTSD has got better?

I think its still the same although therapy sessions have been every week and bi weekly now after two  1/2 years.  ( in therapy constant) never missed an appointment.

The only thing I can say is that I can sleep a little better than I used to because the meds knock me out  & a C-PAP Machine DX by VA AFTER I WAS DX FOR PTSD.

  but I still have flash backs  N/M's 3 or more times a week. & feel jumpi all the time and non-sociable in a sociable setting..but the therapist don't put that in his notes.

I always mention all this to him at my sessions.

So what do they (Examiner) want to look at besides my treatment notes? Will examiner let me speak up during the exam? usually they just read off the computer and make a decision.

I need to make sure I have the therapy notes in my favor that my PTSD is about the same? correct.?  I been DX  70% PTSD & Service Connected for it about 30 months now.

Before I got permanent I got called in for the 2 year review, but then they said they reviewed my records and cancelled the appointment. A short time after that they made me permanent. Here's a link to the DBQ for PTSD Review it should give a good idea of what the exam will be about.

 Review Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Thank you Ms T 

but my VA MH Dept won't help me with a DBQ they say that's not there job  tells me to go see the DAV. they frown if you mention help with a claim or ask politely to fill out a DBQ. = DALLAS VA

Is a License Certified Clinical Social Worker allowed to fill one out? (therapist?)

I have not got a notice yet  may not..but its about that time.

The dairy date I did have with my IU P&T was canceled it was set up for 2014. from 2002

this exam is for PTSD After 2 years.

so for I have not been sent any notice and nothing on ebenfits.

  just paranoid I guess with all the veterans at my VAMC getting their notice for the same exam about the same amount of time I had mine.

Anyone else care to comment your opinion suggestions?

Also can veteran appeal a diary date C&P Exam if they try to reduce benefits. is it actually an NOD? as in a denied claim?

or is this something else?

Thanks In Advance.

I don't really know the circumstances of your PTSD, but I would try to use the opportunity to increase it to 100% P&T. I would recommend you contact Jonathon Mangold, PhD. HSPP Psychology He is in Indiana. CCK uses this guy. Contact me direct for the specifics if you want them.

Will be interesting to see how your PTSD Rating plays out, Re-exam wise. Generally speaking just about all MH SCs and especially PTSD are Diary Dated for Re-exam at 3 to 5 yr intervals, at least until the Vet hits the 55 Cutoff. Your well over 55 but the PTSD Ratings is only 2 years old.

I think the only way your PTSD SC gets a Rater's Review is if you file a New Claim or for an Increase. A couple old "IU T & P No Future Exams" Vet's have had their 50 &70% PTSD Ratings reduced after filing New Claims and receiving PTSD Re-Exam C & Ps, here in Det.
