VA rating decision


Raychamp

Question

I received my rating decision from the Department of Veteran Affairs  and their decision was “Evaluation of prostate cancer, which is currently 100 percent disabling, is proposed to be decreased to 40%”,  Before I send them the following would you please check this out to see if rating should be 80% rather than 40%.

You should not make this change to 40 percent because you based it on :

1.       Awakening to void five or more times per night.

2.      Daytime voiding interval less than one hour.

3.      Requiring the wearing of absorbent materials which must be changed two to four times per day.

Pursuant to 38 CFR & 4.115a Rating of the genitourinary system dysfunctions.

1.      Requiring the wearing of absorbent materials which must be changed two to four times per day has a rating of 40%.

2.      Daytime voiding interval less than one hour, or;  awakening to void five or more times per night  also has a rating of 40% so total rating should be 80%.

Yes appeal this and send in the required evidence that shows your symptoms that meet the 80% rating criteria.

and a statment from you  if your worse than these symptoms you may need a qualified  Dr Opinion   and in increase maybe warranted and not a reduction.

Also if these conditions keeps you from working you may want to file for TDIU P&T  and for your SSDI
