My Appeal for PTSD was "Remanded" BUT WAIT!

RF4-Cmike Not being able to see your file, yes, I believe that this is a favorable turn of events for you. The remand is to further develop you claim; to get an examiner to tie it together to say your disabilities are s-c.IMO.  Of course, be sure to make the C&P next month. Good luck.

We had a female veteran here many years ago who claimed PTSD but the VA re characterized it as  an Acquired MH disorder and she had a hell of a time establishing the inservice nexus for it.

She finally found an IMO/IME doctor who gave her inservice SMRs and 201 file a thorough reading- probably the first time these critical document were ever  read well- the VA skims SMRs, as they dont want to really find a nexus.

She won the claim.

She might have had a buddy statement too.

You said:

 "Basically it reads that I could not prove my stressor with no evidence in my records of event for PTSD. not combat related, But they did find that the event caused acquired psychiatric disorder, anxiety, major depressive disorder, cocaine dependency disorder, alcohol dependency disorder, They even said this has a "Low Bar" and they have scheduled a C&P examine.( Not for PTSD) "

That sounds positive. The BVA reads everything they have.

Can you give us the docket and citation # for the Remand? It might be at the BVA web site by now.

BVA cases are public , but no names etc of the claimant and unfortunately they no longer state the VARO who made the decision which helped me narrow down the initials of a few IMO/IME doctors for vets here with similar claims in the same state the ROs were in. as identified in their older decisions.

No, it is not at the BVA web site yet-

Can you scan and attach it here ? Cover your C file # name etc prior to scanning it.

Always keep in mind that evidence can be a buddy statements, witness statements,  or police reports. I even helped a veteran win service connection non-combat PTSD with a news paper article that reported the incident.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. Knowledgeable 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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
