  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

USMC_VET I can understand you being upset; anyone would be. But this is the VA. You can expect some activities going on in your disability claim. You caught them with their hand in the cookie jar. By

 Note*

If a veteran gets a call for a C&P Exam  done over the phone  be sure to ask the examiner if they got all your evidence, if he/she says yes its in the computer  ask if they have what you have? in other words make darn sure they read  or have all your evidence you submitted.

No, BUT, I had a doctor's appointment today.  I had called to reschedule, but the person on the phone told me that my doctor does telephone appointments.  VA also has "telehealth", too.  So my appointment was via the telephone.  

 

https://www.telehealth.va.gov/  

Now, my doctor gave me a "telehealth" appointment in the future, and she sent me a link to do telehealth.  

Based on the above, my advice is to call the c and p exam office and ask if you can do the exam via telehealth.  

Remember, IMO docs dont even see the Veteran, they see his records and render an opinion based on those.  

My state, including my local VAMC discourages "non essential" medical procedures and appointments that involve close face to face contact.  

In compliance with that, as I mentioned, the VA took my appointment via the phone.  The doctor called me at the prescribed time.

I’ve been using telehealth for mh for several months now. I have a mic and webcam at home but they can do it over your phone too, even video if you want. Each appoint meant is a one tone w connection that you initiate through a link that they send you. If you don’t connect then the app doesn’t do anything ( I used to be an it guy so I monitored my phone network traffic just to see). It works pretty well And is more comfortable for me than sitting in their office on the spot. You have to tell them you want to do it at home though or they will probably assume you will use their Tele health terminals at the nearest clinic.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
