Automatically Secondary to?



Good morning,


I have a question I can't find an answer to.

I am currently service-connected for L5-S1 of my lumbar spine. Over the years my L4-L5 and L3-L4 have become involved and I have assumed that those areas of the spine were automatically considered either as a part of the original L5-S1 service-connection or secondary to it. But, I have never seen it mentioned it my decision letters.

Do I have to claim those areas as secondary for them to be considered?!

Now you get the hard lesson.  The VA will never AUTOMATICALLY do anything.  I would file today and you can try for an EED, but it will probably go with today.
