    Appeal in since July 2018, switch to Modernization Act submission? and Temp 100% question?

    There was no exam for the reduction. I have had another C/P for another issue where they did the back DBQ that showed a decrease in ROM from last DBQ done in ‘17. I have been dealing with VSO. Just have not seen them yet for this issue. Just found out I will be having surgery. How are notes...

    Appeal in since July 2018, switch to Modernization Act submission? and Temp 100% question?

    Last June I received a letter stating that the VA was decreasing my rating for lumbar degenerative disc disease, status post L5 laminectomy and discectomy. I was at 20%. This letter dropped me to 10%. Reasoning said that I was getting better. Problem is I was in care, still am, and am about...

    Being forced to travel for exam, 60 miles one way?

    So the new exam is for a claim i put in for multiple items. Increase on Restless Leg Syndrome and Lumbar Radiculopathy, new claim for Major Depression. The depression was rated and my total disability increased to 80% total. The increases will probably only be an increase of 10% each, so that...

    Being forced to travel for exam, 60 miles one way?

    Called VBA. Told them that the appointment was to far away. They canceled the appointment so I will not get a no show and are requesting that either an appointment be made at a closer location or that it be made at the VA hospital which is 15 minutes from my house. I also asked about my...

    Being forced to travel for exam, 60 miles one way?

    I just received notice that I was assigned an appointment by VES to attend a C/P exam 60 miles away from where I live. What can I do about this? I will have to take a day off of work.

    Guess that rating!!

    You can request to get a copy of that DBQ. But be prepared to wait. I requested a copy of one in Feb. Still waiting. For a copy of paperwork. Ridiculous.

    Guess that rating!!

    I downloaded all medical files, making sure to include the date that I had the CP. It was done at a VA hospital, so it showed up. If you have a DBQ done by an outside provider, but through the VA, it won't show up.

    CP done. Here are results.

    Wonder why they no longer need an exam that was requested, by them?

    CP done. Here are results.

    Update: There is a request on my Va.gov and ebennys that says "Exam Request-Processing" and "Status-No longer needed" Any clues what this is?

    CP done. Here are results.

    I called and spoke with someone at the VA. I was told that the claim is finished partly and they have sent me a determination letter. The reason that it shows not complete on Ebennys is because the increase claim for right leg restless leg syndrome was deferred for "reading of a complex...

    CP done. Here are results.

    No, the other issues where increases and were already service connected and are still showing the original ratings. Shows Prep for Decision now. Completion dates are listed as 7/2019-11/2019

    CP done. Here are results.

    So this is weird. My total disability shows as 80% in ebennys. I received the back pay for the increase. But, the claim still shows as review of evidence and the completion dates are now 8/2019-12/2019. There has been no movement in the other issues listed in the claim for an increase.

    CP done. Here are results.

    Just checked VA.gov letter generator. Shows total disability has been increased up to 80% as of March 1. But Ebenefits shows 70% for Major depressive disorder, 80% total, but claim is back at review of evidence? I had an increase in for my lumbar radiculopathy and restless leg syndrome.
  15. M

    CP done. Here are results.

    Status changed to Prep for Notification. Dates show as 6/13-8/5/19
