    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

Why would they want this?

Recommended Posts

My VA PCP has requested home primary care for me.  Those who decide have put in my file that they want a "comprehensive medical psychosocial assessment" first.  Why would they even think they needed this?  Anyone experience this before?  Any info would be welcomed.

In short, these assessments are generally two prong. In my opinion, they hold equal value but they are done for safety and to assess your whole person. When conducted properly they assist care providers in gathering pertinent and comprehensive information to provide tailored care specific to your needs. In my opinion, this is nothing to be alarmed about.

Of course, we dont know.  We can only guess why your doctor did ordered a test.  Apparently he thinks its needed.  I mostly dont waste time on "why" VA does anything, because its anybody's guess.  

I dont even know why "I do stuff" , let alone trying to figure out what a government agency with thousands of employees does stuff.

My doc didn't request the test.  She requested home based primary care.  The people/department that the request went to requested the test.  Since I've been under mental health care with the VA for 10 years, I would think they could just ask my psy docs.  Only reason I was asking why is because I suspect they are looking for a way to deny the home  based care.  Guess I will just wait and see.  Thanks to all who responded.

I dont recommend worrying about "why" people do anything.  Especially VA.  I certainly would run the department different than what they are doing.  

However, much of that is likely because I have never ran the Va, so I dont know all the ins and outs.  

Sometimes, its easy to be an armchair quarterback.  "why didnt you throw it to him?"  That is easy to say, when you dont have 5 gorillas in a big rush to throw you on the ground, or even hurt you.
