PC doesn't lead to IHD BroVet I was just wondering why when they searched for possible Nehmer class vets ,they wouldn't start with vets who already had a claim for AO presumptive like my PC .My IHD pre dated the 2004 PC in 2002 .When I filed for PC ,IHD was not recognised I haven't seen my C file ,but I wonder when they awarded for PC did they ask for other medical conditions .How do I see my C-file I live 15 minutes from the W-S RO
I'm not sure this is the right forum,but here goes .When the VA was looking for AO presumptive cases,why didn't they contact vets like me .In 2005 I filed and received 0% disability for PC that it would seem to me would put me in a catagory,likely to have IHD which I did have diagnosed outside in 2002 .I didn't come to the VA because it wasn't an AO disease in 2002 and I couldn't receive VA health care I made to much money. If they really wanted to find those of us already suffering the effects AO It seems vets who were already in the loop receiving disability would be part of the search.
You do have to indicate whether you want a DRO review or a NOD without the DRO review. Below is a link to information concerning the DRO review process. Keep in mind that if the DRO review is not successful, you may still file an appeal. Good Luck going forward! http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/using-the-vas-decision-review-officer-dro-hearing-process.html  Links: ------  http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/using-the-vas-decision-review-officer-dro-hearing-process.html
I had a claim close in dec 14'. I have been gathering notes ect for an appeal. Question is, Do I need to state a specific appeal type.? Where the local VA re looks at it as opposed to taking 5-7 years. Thanks
ALASKAK94 WROTE: ------------------------- Strategy-wise, Worlds Apart was decent with 3 successful idol plays post-merge. BUT, all the likable people post-merge were gone first (namely the No-Collars), and two unlikable fatties that made it to top 6 completely destroyed the season. Without Sierra in the top 6 and Mike winning, this season would have been god awful. X
Dang, if only we had Rodney in the final 3 instead of Carolyn. It would have been the best.
Draft tomorrow, Free Agent Frenzy on Tuesday. Too bad the Rangers have no picks and no money.
I contacted a VA attorney to see if I qualified for smc (s). He replied with the following: As for SMC(s), you will need a 100% rating and a separate 60% rating (for a single condition different from the 100% rating). Unfortunately, we can't add other ratings to get the combined 60 for SMC(s). Here is my story. I've been 100% P&T since 2008. My ratings are below 100% -Asthma 30% - Skin disorder 10% - rt knee 10 % - left knee 10 % -right 5th finger injury 10% - onychomycosis and tinea pedis 10% -tinnitus I believe I qualify for smc (s) from what I've read and researched. Please advise if I'm wrong. Thanks
BIGWILLIE WROTE: ------------------------- My asthma is permanent per VA, so should I apply? Do I just write my regional office and ask for it and ask for retro pay. Thanks Due to the current campaign to standardize claims, I'm not sure if you can simply write the VARO any more. Use this all purpose form: http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-4138-ARE.pdf  to submit your request for SMC S. Links: ------  http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-4138-ARE.pdf
