Hey @JohnViro

I just had two quick questions about your specific situation if you had a moment. First, I noticed that there was approximately a month between the case going historical and you accepting your findings. Was that due to the QA phase that occurs after the DoVA completes their proposed findings? Second, in your circumstance, did the DoD adopt the percentage that the VA had proposed specifically for your REFERRED UNFIT condition?

Yes & yes. QA phase was the longest portion of this entire process, the PEB kept quoting me 25 to 30 days, however if you're like me and severely impatient, you might get lucky like I did and found a rep over the phone from the VA who will neither confirm or deny your proposed rating. If you can't, it's 10 business days til they can fax it to your PEBLO. And yes, for both IDES and LDES, the DOD uses VA rating system, and your overall DOD will be for ONLY your "referred to PEB" condition(s).

@JohnViro ,

Thanks for the quick response. I already went ahead and had the VA proposed ratings faxed over, I'm at 80% total with the Referred Condition being at 50%. I've been waiting at this QA phase since May 1st, starting to get irritated! I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Same man, the QA phase annoyed me when the rest of my IDES case has been extremely quick.

I've now since encountered a few other issues, one being the admin department where I am stationed didn't want to open up a TOPS ticket to get me hard copies, they kept saying my retirement packet has to be 100% completed, and my issue was the medical clinic not being able to schedule me a separation physical any time soon, I would of been forced to live here til after my end of service til movers could come. I called around and discovered that PSD only needs blocks 1-14 on the NPPSC 1900/1, page 1, for PSD to produce hard copy orders. If you need any help at all, don't hesitate to ship me a message!

Thank you to everyone who has helped me from this forum in this process and to the forum for having such amazing information. If anyone ever needs any help, do not hesitate to reach out to me for any information! I will still frequent this forum!

Hello everyone, I have been recommended for a Med board from a gastrointestinal doctor for EOE and Gerd. I have had this issue going on 3 years now with no improvement in my condition despite taking several steroids and other medications. Additionally, I have severe lower back pain that hasn't went away with several months of Physical Therapy and am currently in therapy with PTSD issues from Afghanistan. I met with the PCM today and he stated he would have his portion completed either today or tomorrow and that the PEBLO should be getting in contact with me by next week. I spoke with a corpsman that was processed out and he claimed that along with what he was med boarded for they also added in everything else that was wrong with him on top of what they originally submitted him for when it was all said done...raising his DOD and VA ratings, does this sound right? Any guidance on anything I have stated above would be greatly appreciated!
