  • 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.

IU question future exams

Question

Hi everyone, 

I was awarded my IU back in Nov 2014. My letter says I will have a re-examination Dec 2019. I have since moved to another state since 2014.
 Myself, my VSO and my social worker have been keeping an eye out for this exam so I can be prepared. But we don’t see anything coming up for December and January. Has anyone had this happen? Does the VA always schedule a Re-examination like they state in their award letters? This is all still very new to me, so any experiences or advice is genuinely appreciated.

You are on the right track. Stay on top of it.   Watch for that exam.  I hope you made sure VA knows your new address, both in VA health, and VBA (benefits).  

If the VA mails you something, like an exam appt, and you failed to change your address...the outcome may not be all that good for you.  Check ebenefits to make sure your address was changed and its correct.  

Now, for the good news.  VA does NOT ALWAYS schedule a re exam like they said in the award letters.  There are several reasons for this.  The most likely is you have been seeing the doc and he or she has opinied your condition has not improved, or has even gotten worse in the past 5 years.    An exam costs VA money..so they dont do it unless they think you improved and they can get that money back by reducing your benefits.  If you have already been seeing the doc for 5 years, then an exam is not likely needed, unless there are unanswered questions the doc did not provide.

LOOK AT YOUR DAIRY DATE?

This Award was System-Generated From  *DATES*). If Converted Award Lines Existed Before That Date, They Were
Protected From Change.

 

That means they canceled your exam date.

I would also recommend getting on ebenefits so you can watch for letters, etc. yourself. And get on Va.gov.

If Dairy dates is generated when they have you schedule after a  award is 2   to 7 years old.. if the date was before what they said the dairy date was schedule  then its canceled.

Either look on your award or rating sheet  if you been scheduled to have an exam it will be on there  other wise look  in your C-FIle  and look and see  what the generated exam date is? (dairy date)  if the date is before they scheduled it then it should be cancelled  or no date set...and your not set up to have an exam.  the date space will be left blank

My award was 2003   then 7 years later the dairy date was taken off    ..and no exam was scheduled   they call it a generated date  and place the date in (my date was  2010....so after 2010  they cancelled it  I never was called up for the exam.

This is how they did mine  but maybe some veterans are different?

They do this if your award is not Temporary or your condition is not expected to improve within your life time no future exams scheduled.

This part should be on your award letter.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
