    Medical separation

    I don't know the in's and outs of AF, but I do know it starts with the "informal local board" the IRILO i believe. I would change dr's or talk to the surgeon to see if they would recommend it to you primary. AF has extra steps that the army does not. army- P3 triggers the MEB. there are...

    Medical separation

    what service? do you currently have a profile? how long have you been on profile- continuous no lapses if it has been a year then at least in the army it "should" get changed to a P3 and trigger a MEB- not always true

    if they were in the MEB process they should not have been separated until the process is complete. were they notified that the MEB started, contacted by a PEBLO and had C&P exams? if so that unit was wrong I know this as this happened to a friend that is almost complete with MEB. they are NG...

    are you asking if a soldier who has a current VA rating (30% or higher) that is currently in the NG can be retired? - No soldier has to go thru the MEB process to be retired.

    If it's the army NG- they are suppose to follow AR40-501- standards of medical fitness. It's not so much can you do your job- that is a part of it, but can you do the soldier tasks and drills? (if you look at the army long profile there are I think 8 of them. if any are checked it should be...

    DoD and VA Award

    Unless you have 20 years in and eligible for regular retirement you will only receive VA OR DOD- not both. usually the one that is more advantageous is VA as it is non taxable. your VA rating is everything that you were rated for the 80%.

    Permanent DoD. What happens if I say Piss off to the VA?

    The future exams might not have anything to do with being an amputee. there are probably other issues that you were rated for - say shoulder or allergies. The big packet of paperwork you received after your ratings were finalized it spells out what issues they are saying "may change". and I know...

    Permanent DoD. What happens if I say Piss off to the VA?

    Everyone's experience is different. I personally have been treated at VA's in 3 different states. All my experiences have been good. bottom line- everyone has different experiences- why not give it a try you might be pleasantly surprised. I know I was apprehensive when I was first seen at a VA...

    Saunders v United States

    Yes- pain is subjective- one persons "10" is someone else's 4. something else that changes a persons pain rating- chronic conditions. if you have one you "get use to it" and your view of pain/tolerance changes

    Saunders v United States

    will this translate to other areas- like SSDI- being able to use this federal case for appeal or hearing?

    IDES Dashboard in AKO

    from what I remember I couldn't see anything until after I think it was the PEBLO had to input stuff (I think this also is "their" way of not missing deadlines)

    What do I do next? IG, Congress, Art. 138, nothing?

    From reading other threads -you got hurt on orders and are entitled to incap pay. Orders- if surgeon says the has to be don (necessary) they " shouldn't" deny orders Others are more knowledgeable in this area

    What do I do next? IG, Congress, Art. 138, nothing?

    what does the BDE surgeon say? what about the treating physician (active duty)-what is their opinion- does this "need to be fixed"

    What do I do next? IG, Congress, Art. 138, nothing?

    I don't know the answer but just reading the first line of the email "that you have made a medical determination" sarcasm- is your BDE Commander a physician?

    Up to 45,000 Tricare Users Could Soon Be Dropped

    dealing with the new contractor has been horrible. received an email the other day that referrals are "open" still - you don't have to go to your PCM for one and you can still see your current PCM. the new contractor knew of the change in Nov and they still don't have their "stuff" together...

    What is the one thing you wish you knew then that you know now?

    that's the process- your MEB ratings are "preliminary" the VA takes a month or more to finalize your ratings after you get out and sends you a packet. a majority of the time your ratings don't change. there is the very small chance that the VA will change something after you get out. that's what...

    What is the one thing you wish you knew then that you know now?

    Alex- you don't find out until they finalize your ratings and send you that big packet. it will tell you if they will require exams- usually in 5 years it's in the paperwork you receive from the VA

    Camp Atterbury

    No- they have mr moore. this is actually my daughter. I went thru MEB on the active side and was retired. my PEBLO was horrible and I had to go have her head to a supervisor more than once. the legal counsel was not "up to par" so to speak as they didn't even explain things correctly. I do know...
