Greetings my Hadit Family.
I do have a lot of why questions and some of you might have your opinions as to why.
I am pretty sure that most of us are familiar with the 38 CFR. Most of us had an injury or illness while in the military either was caused by service or aggrevated while one service.
This is it so hard to get it service connect. Do know half of the answer. Bigger bonuses for VA reps.
Why are Vet’s told that Vets need an IMO, IME or some type of Nexus. (My hand is raised, Pick me, Pick Me). Because the VA knows that it is very difficult to get such Nexus. The VA knows that most doctors will not write a nexus. If they do, it takes years of test and treatments before they would consider writing but at least they are getting paid. Job security. Doctors are no dummy. Even though a private Doctor has read your SMR, and see that you did have an incident or injury while in service, the Doctor is still hesitant to write such letter because the Doctor does not know what the Vet has done post service. The Vet goes out and spend big money for an IMO, IME etc. I have seen vets still get denied after spending the money. The VA see that if the Vet has that type of money to spend, then why do they need to be service connected.
I have seen Vets spend thousand’s of dollars and IMO’s IME’s DBQ’s etc. My outside VA PCP had did 3 DBQ’s at 400 a pop for me and use the magic word that VA likes and still got denied. I have seen and personally know people spend 2000.00 at Reemedical out of San Diego and got denied. I have read post were Vets went to other places like Dr. Bash, some got denied. So what now. The Vet have to lawyer up because of the amount that they have spent just to get that denial.
Look at our WW2 Vets as well as our Nam Vets. We as vets know what our past Vets have went through and some do not have that much money to get a nexus, Imo time, and have a low disability rating, but the injury or incident happened while in service. The first thing that VA states, you need a nexus. Now our elder vets just settle for a lower rating until death. Is this right? is this taking care of our vets that have put their lives for our country?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
