11 exams in 45 minutes

Question

Optum Serve performed 11 exams in 45 minutes.  I am going to attach them here.  I am using a lawyer to help with this, but they told me that the only positive exam was for my knees....After reading through it, there are several questions I don't even recall being asked, yet they clicked no on the answer, for example, see attached.  how can I have no flare-ups, but report functional loss or impairment for repeated use?  She never asked that question. Of course I have flare-ups.

If anybody is bored tonight, read through these pages and give me a your thoughts.  If I need to rebut these exams, I need to do it before they make a decision.

By the way, while it's a small amount, I am a monthly contributor to keep this site going. 

I'm at 60% now for the following:

 

10%

tinnitus

Service-connected disability? Yes

Effective date: 01/01/2022

30%

chronic cervical strain

Service-connected disability? Yes

Effective date: 05/29/2019

10%

residuals of a hernia repair

Service-connected disability? Yes

Effective date: 05/18/2002

0%

allergic rhinitis

Service-connected disability? Yes

Effective date: 05/18/2002

30%

asthma

Service-connected disability? Yes

Effective date: 05/18/2002

radiculopathy left upper extremity

Service-connected disability? No

radiculopathy right upper extremity

Service-connected disability? No

bilateral hearing loss

Service-connected disability? No

 

It's funny they denied hearing loss, but they said I have moderate to severe loss in one ear and severe in the other, and they gave me hearing aids.  SMH.

I tried to removed most things besides my first/middle name.  If somebody here feels the need to steal my identity, they need it more than me. lol.  but I appreciate the notification.

Some of it might have been addressed in your medical records already, thus it wouldn't have to be asked. It's not a script, it's a guideline to ask the things that need to be answered, sometimes that is not every question.

This is an open/public site where more than veterans come to post, I can tell you that your SSN is not redacted.
