  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

    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

Remanded back to st. Pete

Question

Even though we had wavier, for decision be made at bva.  The docket number is14-41 036A.  From what I understand they want the ro to make decision if renal failure is due to cads.  It is like they are totally over looking that we filed it has secondary to Diabetes, because hubby was not diagnosised withcads until 2013,and va granted it in July of 2014.he was diagnosised with renal failure in 2011.??  that is the reason for filing secondary to diabetes.  Let me know what you all think.  And hubby did not file for iu,but now they are telling him to?  What are his chances.

There is always the possibility that your claimed Secondary Nexus is in error. What VA or Private Nephrologist Treatment Notes or IMO  backs up your DM II Nexus?

As to the IU Claim, if he's over 60% SC or meets the requirements for an Extra-Scheduler Award, why on earth haven't you already filed for IU?

Do you have a POA-VSO handling your Claims and Appeals, big mistake if you're doing this as DIY project? Especially true, if IU has been a missed opportunity for an extended period.

Lookup VA Accredited Claims Agent #39029 POA Code EIP. Do a Consult and get this over with. It's time to get this handled by a Pro so you folks can get on with your lives.

This VA Claims Agent can get it done either at the BVA Level or CAVC if necessary.

We just found out, instead of going back st. Pete, it went to Cheyenne, Wyoming.  They have some kind of program going where they help each other.  But other than that we have not heard anything.   They granted an increase on diabetes and remand renal disease and tdiu.  So I understand the increase has to be rated.  So does that mean we will not get back pay on that increase, until they finish the remand?   We are more tired military.  All this is confusing.  Going to call Wyoming and see if they have sent anything out yet.  My mail has been coming so late.   And we don’t get as much  junk mail now.  I have worked at a post office yrs ago, where the carrier got caught dumping mail in a trash dumpster, where he thought would not be found.

      Ebenefits is showing a claim for a new exam for hubbys heart.  This is the third exam.  He was just in hospital in Aug for pulmonary embolism. I uploaded paperwork.   I think it will show that his heart condition is worse and now the right side of the heart has problems.   I checked for them to make a decision on it.   Do they usually leave the percent at the same or could they possibly increase it?  The diagnosis from the hospital stay says chronic copd, Chronic CHF, sleep apnea for at least 10 yrs using cpap,  and acute kidney failure.  Now we do have a remanded  appeal for ckd and iu.  But should we go ahead and file a claim for all this.  They do not usually just go ahead and grant these things, right.  Or will they just go ahead maybe and grant 100 percent for the heart.  And how long does it take for them to decide.  It is due to close between 1-18 and 02-15.

      L My husband filed a claim  for increase in diabetes and chronic kidney failure sec to diabetes in 2012 and filed a in nod of that same year.  Went to bva they gave him increase on diabetes and remanded the kidney issue.  They told him to file for iu.  It was remand with the kidney issue.  They sent forms to file the iu. we filed in sept.  Then we uploaded info they wanted oct 11.  It showed up in ebenefits as a claim after they received that.  Today it is sayin 0 claims open.  Still shows the remand for kidney issue.  Claim is not showing up in historical claims.  Now yesterday it was showing up as a pending disability, down at the bottom of that pg.  today nothing showing there.  What do you suppose is happening?

      Ok they gave hubby a 20% extra on his on diabetes, remand kidney disability and they are linking it with his cads.  Because that is what he has 60% for now.   Remand on iu, which they want him to file for.   they did this on the 13th of July.  So should they start to pay him for that?  They are not showing increase on ebennies.  We found out per his Vso.  I’m assuming since it is not on ebennies it will probably be another month.  Or will they hold that up and wait for the Iu to be approved or disapproved.?  His remand is in Cheyenne Wyoming.  His regional office is St. Pete.

    • Tinnitus comes in two forms: subjective and objective. In subjective tinnitus, only the sufferer will hear the ringing in their own ears. In objective tinnitus, the sound can be heard by a doctor who is examining the ear canals. Objective tinnitus is extremely rare, while subjective tinnitus is by far the most common form of the disorder.

      The sounds of tinnitus may vary with the person experiencing it. Some will hear a ringing, while others will hear a buzzing. At times people may hear a chirping or whistling sound. These sounds may be constant or intermittent. They may also vary in volume and are generally more obtrusive when the sufferer is in a quiet environment. Many tinnitus sufferers find their symptoms are at their worst when they’re trying to fall asleep.

    • Precedent Setting CAVC cases cited in the M21-1
      A couple months back before I received my decision I started preparing for the appeal I knew I would be filing.  That is how little faith I had in the VA caring about we the veteran. 

      One of the things I did is I went through the entire M21-1 and documented every CAVC precedent case that the VA cited. I did this because I wanted to see what the rater was seeing.  I could not understand for the life of me why so many obviously bad decisions were being handed down.  I think the bottom line is that the wrong type of people are hired as raters.  I think raters should have some kind of legal background.  They do not need to be lawyers but I think paralegals would be a good idea.

      There have been more than 3500 precedent setting decisions from the CAVC since 1989.  Now we need to concede that all of them are not favorable to the veteran but I have learned that in a lot of cases even though the veteran lost a case it some rules were established that assisted other veterans.

      The document I created has about 200 or so decisions cited in the M21-1.   Considering the fact that there are more than 3500 precedent cases out there I think it is safe to assume the VA purposely left out decisions that would make it almost impossible to deny veteran claims.  Case in point. I know of 14 precedent setting decisions that state the VA cannot ignore or give no weight to outside doctors without providing valid medical reasons as to why.  Most of these decision are not cited by the M21.

      It is important that we do our due diligence to make sure we do not get screwed.  I think the M21-1 is incomplete because there is too much information we veterans are finding on our own to get the benefits we deserve
