    Is Title 37 USC 204 (g) the actual law?

    They have to then "interpret" and issue their own regulations this sometimes leads to lawsuits because the regulations are different than the law.

    I am 100% P&T (mental health), can I start work without concerning of a possible re-eval or reduction?

    Not typical especially if you are 100% P&T and not IU. It's that some believe it's unethical because a maxed out MH rating means "total occupational and social impairment" which in the worst case could possibly come up on a CUE if you had long term employment but I have yet to see it happen. Not...

    Advice (short) - start of out processing

    I can't say it means "nothing" but often the examiner will opine that you either have never seen a rheumatologist or been diagnose by one and then state "less likely than not" basically sinking your claim happens a lot with fibro claims. My opinion is to definitely get to the specialist not...

    after pdbr congressional inquiry and findings

    Something that could be missing here is that all your VA SC conditions are probably not considered unfit and requiring a rating from the DoD. The DoD does not work like the VA and rate conditions decades after service based on current severity only at the time of discharge.

    I responded to your other thread you concurring with the examiner's opinion that you were doing better was a huge mistake you need to read what you sign not just what people tell you, it's harsh but the truth.

    DoD sent letter that rating is going from TDRL 70% to separation with 10%

    How are your grades? If your medical notes and prescription are working that could be evidence that you are doing better this is a very popular myth that treatment means you are doing worst but it really depends how that treatment is going. Going to school everything good at home having a kid...

    That's if the provider submits an MEB they already claimed they do not think you have a diagnosis yet you cannot make them and yes it has to be service provider, not a civilian.
