ASK VA your questions, TODAY


Question

  • Moderator
Posted (edited)

VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago. 

You can ask questions to the following people:

Yeah I wish they would give us a good reason as to why we can't view the VBMS? WHEN ITS OUR MEDICAL RECORDS WE BE LOOKING AT.

@Buck52 I agree! We should have access to VBMS and all scanned documentation. It stinks when they give you a one year appeal window, so you request your claims folder so you can make an educated

Why can't VA eliminate the Call Centers and The Evidence Intake Centers?  There is a VA regional Office in every state or just about every state. Years ago when a veteran called the 1-800 number, it would connect the veteran to his/her own VA Regional Office . The Call Centers and The Evidence Intake Centers only complicated things. So why can't VA revert back to the old way system where a veteran could call the 1 800 number and get his/her local VA Regional Office where they could give a more accurate response?

Before they centralized the call centers and evidence intake centers, some VARO's did their job more effectively or handled different workloads than others.

I can say that since the change, I noticed I no longer have to wait on hold for an hour to talk to someone. After talking to a number of VA employees since the changes occurred, call centers were not officially consolidated to a single facility. Employees at each VARO log into a central call system and answer the next caller in queue.

Unless they change their internal rules and regulations, I don't think that we will be able to get more quality information from each call. I had a WH VA Hotline complaint about a claim that was jacked up by the VA. The request was sent to my VARO, but the mistake was actually made by the VARO in New Orleans.

    • 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.
