The Crazy-Ass VA - Part 2
I can’t get over the feeling that the VA hires legal assistance to fight against veterans in disability claims. I mean, that sounds to me like they are not in the game of helping out a veteran, now does it?
But hear me out here, the VA denied one claim of mine, but they put in the notes that I should file for Chronic Sinusitis. I looked back through all of my claims and Sinusitis was part of the very first claim I filed several years back. This time, I went for my C&P exam, and the practitioner said, that she had already once stated that I have Chronic Sinusitis, and she said that they will state it again on this claim.
Sure enough, I was already once denied Sinusitis which is all the more confusing.
When I was at my C&P exam, the practitioner and I were talking and she said that she feels that the VA really fights for the veterans, but why am I getting denied? The practitioner said that I had it. They shouldn’t schedule a C&P exam unless they can make it service-connected, so why the denial?
Most of the time, when you are denied, you get a statement as to why you were denied like my RA and Fibro claim was denied because the “evidence was irrelevant”. This means that the 56 pages I sent them, were all bullshit in their eyes., I mean, I had doctors’ statements, I had buddy letters, I had doctors’ exams, test results, and a nexus letter, I did everything except hold their fucking hand on it. All that and they denied it. And as a veteran, I have nowhere to go now, but to hire a lawyer, all because of the 100% bullshit statement that my “evidence is irrelevant”, I mean, what the hell does that mean and how do I make my evidence relevant?
When I called a few weeks back about the C&P appointment for the RA and Fibro, I had them reschedule me for a practitioner who is a little closer to my house, so I don’t have to take off a half day of work (unpaid) for all this BS, They were nice enough to arrange that for me. I’m not even sure why I have to do the C&P exam, since the claim was closed, months ago.
