Not sure if how many people may be in the same boat but I was medically separated after receiving a 20% rating for my separating condition after going through an MEB. I appealed it to no prevale. After being out, I went for an increase and got it upgraded to 40% and it was back dated to my separating date. The 40% would have originally medically retired me instead of being separated. Everything I have read and found regarding similar situations only applies to those who got out between 2001 and 2009. I got out in 2016 and have been looking to see if I have options to try and get that decision changed to medically retired vs separated. Is there anything I can do? Any help and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
