  • 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

On Myhealthevet messages... 

 

  • Are these messages that are sent to providers, Pact Team, and others. Are they required by law to be uploaded into my health records? I have one on my primary care nurses, who has not uploaded them into my records. I've been asking for referrals since September.

 

  • Are the clinics required by law to log phone calls, if ordering Rx, or getting a message to providers? One of the clinics only had provider and front would only log calls once 10 days to keep workload down.

 

  • Not to mention on Dec 24th, Two vets I know was supposed to have labs done, but all day long was the on hold music, then 1631 hours it went to the we are closed. I don't mind really, but all the other stuff has to be considered, so I think if they do the job other days no one would complain.

  I'll give my 2 cents and try to answer your questions the best I can. of course this is not set in stone and  just my opinion.

1. Are these messages that are sent to providers, Pact Team, and others. Are they required by law to be uploaded into my health records? I have one on my primary care nurses, who has not uploaded them into my records. I've been asking for referrals since September.

Yes they are required by Law to be placed in your health records   which there are three places....> one on online with Myhealthyvet and the other is in the VAMC  Release of Records office storage archives, and of course your C-File  at your  V.A.Regional Office. copies are made and sent to all the ABOVE Note Myhealthvet  has a summery of your records from Treating  Dr's  Phyistrist and mental health Medical personal &  Specialist and Nurses and Social workers , Therapist ,L.C.S.W.  These are called PROGRESS NOTES.

Now keep in mind your VA MEDICAL RECORDS ARE WITH THE VA ONLY..UNLESS YOU SIGN A FOIA AND AND AGREE TO SHARE YOUR V.A. MEDICAL RECORDS WITH PRIVATE MEDICAL CLINICS AND HOSPITALS.

2. Are the clinics required by law to log phone calls, if ordering Rx, or getting a message to providers? One of the clinics only had provider and front would only log calls once 10 days to keep workload down. 

 The VAMC SHOULD HAVE THE LOG AS TO THE TIME AND PLACE OF THE PHONE CALL RECORDED.  THEY CAN GO BACK AND CHECK THIS OUT IF YOU GIVE THEM THE CORRECT DATE AND TIME OF THE PHONE CALL. AND PHONE NUMBER FROM THE CALL.

3. Not to mention on Dec 24th, Two vets I know was supposed to have labs done, but all day long was the on hold music, then 1631 hours it went to the we are closed. I don't mind really, but all the other stuff has to be considered, so I think if they do the job other days no one would complain.

NOT SURE HOW TO ANSWER THIS ONE?  OTHER THAN THE HOLIDAYS MAKE AN EXCEPTION  OTHER THAN AN EMERGENCY  AND COVID HAS THINGS ALL MESSED UP.  NORM they do not call veterans up on the holidays. (only in a emergency) life or death situation .

Thank you for your response. So the issue with having my messages uploaded into my health record.  I get the records are part of Myhealthevet.  When I message Specialty Clinics, or if another nurse fills in on my Pact Team. When I send a message, within 3 days it shows up in my "Blue Button" records when I view that online with Myhealthevet.  The messages are acknowledged by the providers etc.

But this Nurse Notes are never in showing up in my record, even when I put on every message to upload this into my health record. 

 

Buck I found your response very helpful and look forward to your info on this part.

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...



      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.



      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.



      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.



      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"



      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.



      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.



      ------



      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating



      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%



      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008



      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)



      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%



      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      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,
