Dave makes several valid poitns. One of the biggest problems today, is that the VBA obviously makes determinations of healthcare eligibility based on what they think it will cost them in disability compensation. This is done to a point that they refuse to use years of actual medical records to determine what conditions you may or not be suffering from, and schedule C&P exams for the express purpose of manipulating diagnostic records in order to deny claims. In my case, The examiner they employed to conduct the examination was on probation for falsifying medical records at the time he was conducting the exam, and he backdated fabicated diagnoses into my medical records as part of his examination report. At this point, it has become a Senate Inquiry. However, I think a lot of this could be avoided. If soldiers, after signing on the dotted line, putting their lives on the line, were entitled to, at the very least, mental healthcare, the VA would not have to base their decisions on how much they would owe you. These practices are absurd. It was even documented in my medical records by VA practitioners that I was interested in treatment only, and had no intent on filing a claim at the time. But after the second time of having treatment abruptly stopped due to arguments of ineligibility during critical poitns in therapy, there was no choice but to file a official claim. I had been deemed eligible through a means test at one point, and now am no longer eligible again, while a third therapist at the VHA still insists that I need the therapy. What do finances have to do with a patients condition and the relevant care that they need. This is a critical error in the system that is reeking havoc all the way around. It takes the strength and courage of a warrior to ask for help, but you have to escape becoming a statistic of the veteran suicide rate (18 per day), and be part of an act of congress to get therapy without interruption. It's insane, and I would not be alive today if I didn't have the help of my wife and brother. Over $80 was spent on certified mail just yesterday. What about veterans who have no one? Where does that leave them?

I think that it is great to have an organization like yours to get tihngs done, however, some of the tihngs that need to be done may seem insignificant, but will help all Veterans and Disabled Veterans. The inconsistency in claims, the erroneous decisions that are made, what the Army and the VA does to Soldiers/Veterans, especially to Army Reservists is to me criminal . I call what they do to us Theft by Taking . There is no other way to describe it. They systematically deny, deny, deny and just expect us to go away, but that's not going to happen. Once these problems are fixed I know that the problems will take care of a lot of tihngs Soldiers and Veterans are fighting for and will make the claims process a lot easier. These tihngs, like the VA Medical Side not having access to the Veterans Medical Records over in the VA Benefits building not more than a couple hundred yards away. That is a definite problem. The VA was not paying travel expenses in a pretty devious way and it cost Veterans a lot of money. This problem needs to be fixed and for those that didn't get travel for medical appointments at the VA Hospital, what happened to the money? That money was allocated for Veterans to travel to and from VA Hospital and a lot of people didn't know they were supposed to get it and the VA was ripping off the Veteran and I have contacted the VA IG just this past week, but it is definitely something that needs to be fixed. The claims process is one I am taking on big time. The inequities and illogical decisions in the claims evaluation needs to change and I am going to change it. I could use some help, but there are tihngs that affect each and every Veteran and once changed will make tihngs a lot easier for Veterans to get what they are entitled to. I have been successful in two areas as far as claim review, but I still think it needs to go farther. It is a start, but need some oomph behind my efforts and I think it will benefit all Veterans, which is a very important goal for me, as well as to get my claims fixed. I am already at 100%, but there are a lot of other tihngs that are still messed up that I will be fixing for the benefit of all. It's all about taking care of Soldiers and Veterans. That's what needs to be done and that's what I fully plan to do. Once the problems are fixed, it will be a lot easier to adjudicate claims. Thanks for all you do!!! Very Respectfully, Dave
