Vet Comp and Pen Testimonial – Tyrone P.

The story behind my eyes could be sacrifice,just to be a great American and show my dedication to the United States of America,my name is Tyrone Parker I served in the United States Army for 21 years as a combat medic,the army, if you have an injury you pretty much suck it up,you dont have time to show weakness so those little aches and pains that we overlook is,because we have a mission,that just goes to the back burner,but when its time to file your claim after you retire or get our the service it makes,it hard because we dont have anything documented,well after being in the army 21 years I had back problems, knees, shoulders, internal,problems also, it took a pretty big toll on me,it hurts, it really hurts,Im not as social anymore I sit in my room and just watch tv or just be alone and my,family took a toll when I was in the process of retiring we had to do a physical and you,had to put down all the claims as far as your injuries,and I had about 27 and after going through the physical and Xrays and mental tests I,thought I would probably be 100% out of those 27 claims that I had only five got approved,and my reaction was wow 21 years of the army and this is what I get, 80%,but it seems to me that the VA is there to not pay you,its just sad the way they trigger our veterans,its just like a court case you have to put in time,I spent about 90 hours trying to prove that Im injured for the VA,Im like oh wow maybe I should look at that,and Im glad I did because the 90 hours that I put in by myself I only had to do 1 hour,for Vet Comp and Pen,Vet Comp and Pen is amazing,all I had to do was just send them my medical records,and they had a team of people that comb through your medical records and they look for things,that I may have missed,they did all the medical review because filling out these forms, its not like we do them every day,those are the VA forms they may know the forms but we dont,so Vet Comp and Pen made it seamless,once I got my results back that Vet Comp and Pen helped me with I opened up the envelope,and it was like wow, 100%. They discharged student loans which my wife had and my son,has student loans to, they discharged his and they gave him additional 25 months to,continue onto college,and here in the state of texas oh my gosh you dont have to pay property tax so they,did a lot for me. in just a little time frame, I had to spend an hour,without Vet Comp and Pen I think I would be, I wont say homeless but I would be struggling,pretty bad. this whole experience gave me closure by getting me to my 100% so I could help take,care of my family,and every time I think about it it kind of gets me,these guys are real good

Vet Comp and Pen

hi my name is Jason leader fine and I,just wanted to kind of give a,testimonial for a service that I,received from an amazing company that,really has changed my life Im a veteran,I started service in 2002 right after,the September 11th attacks my service,took me overseas for three and a half,years I was in Germany Iraq Kuwait and,even Afghanistan I finally exited from,service in 2013 I got up active duty in,2010 after being recalled to active duty,as a mobilized reservists to Fort Bliss,Texas and thats where I went to,Afghanistan when I got out I really,didnt know what was going on with my VA,benefits it just seemed so complicated,that I ignored it and I didnt help,myself one of the problems I had was I,moved away from the Los Angeles area to,Memphis Tennessee I didnt even want to,bother with thinking about how how does,this transfer a little I do I made a,couple phone calls in beginning I never,got a phone call back I just dropped it,I ended up going to a job fair to help,bring veterans into the company that I,was working for and there was actually a,VA rep there who talked to me about how,to apply for disability benefits I did,it on my own,and about six months later I was given a,40% rating I was denied for quite a few,things even though they were,service-connected and were even in my,medical files but I said hey now Ive,got some health care taken care of Im,getting a lecture disability money and I,took it upon myself to file some new,claims and I went up to 60% and then I,ended up going up to 70% the one,particular claim kept getting denied and,that was for obstructive sleep apnea I,developed it I believe while I was in,service I never had it before and it was,really ruining my life I was always,tired I was gaining weight and it was,just really really unhealthy,when I talked to my doctor at the VA she,sent me to get a sleep study done in,asleep so he came back that I had,extremely severe sleep apnea my test,ended up having 49 apnea episodes in one,hours period I was given a CPAP and,Ive been on the CPAP ever since for,about two years since then Ive you know,felt a lot better but my claim for it,being service-connected is the night,twice my last claim I actually read the,doctors report who gave me a favorable,reading for the claim that it was just,as likely as not that it was the,governments responsibility claim was,denied going on Facebook I noticed,commercial an ad from veterans cause,intent I thought you know what do I have,to lose they are offering a service that,would only charge me if they want so,its it was really a no-lose situation,for me because if I didnt win I dont,lose anything but if I win then I got,something that I failed to get twice so,I did a little bit of research and Ill,share some of that with you you know if,youve ever filed a disability claim you,know that it can take six months to a,possible year for your initial claim to,even be processed approved denied,whatever it is and the denied part is,the one thats really really scary when,its denied my research and what Ive,seen shows that it can take a long time,years for you to get through the denial,process a lot of people told me you know,hey why dont you go to a VSO or one of,these free reps so I said okay let me,let me look at their success rate their,success rate is the lowest rate possible,when you compare two attorneys or paid,advocates that help you get the benefits,that you you deserve and you earned so,what I looked at its at veterans with,attorney representatives are among the,most likely to have their appeal allowed,according to the report so automatically,you have people that are,advocating for you and you have to,remember theyre not paid unless you win,so theyre going to do everything they,can to ensure that youre treated,correctly that your case and appeal is,successful so I filed an appeal for my,sleep apnea and they said you know what,youre doing something wrong I would,have never known that had it not been,for veterans competent,sitting down looking at my file getting,to know me they let me know what I was,doing wrong was I was connecting my,sleep apnea to things that wouldnt get,approved,I had to connect it to something that I,already had as an approved disability,through the VA so I did that and let me,tell you about the process so the,process was extremely human efficient,simple I went online I filled out some,information kind of described myself if,I had any questions I was able to call,them and get them answered,you know usually immediately and Im,talking not some secretary that I am,those five hundred people a day you know,your hat you have pretty pretty good,relationship with people that are,handling your case and theyre not,overwhelmed with cases and thats thats,the benefit of it and thats another,reason I didnt go to the BSO a VSO or,the DBA not that those arent good there,those are great options for people but,theyre overwhelmed youre just another,number you know when you call you have,to explain your situation every single,time and who you are every single time,because they have two thousand other,cases sitting in front of them and they,just dont dont have the time to sit in,and specifically work on your case like,you would want it done one thing youve,learned in the Army in the military were,you were in is that no ones going to,care about you more than you but that,changed when I met that confident in is,I felt like they cared just about me as,much as I did and that was a big,difference for me so I ended up winning,my appeal they sent me the required,documentation that I needed extremely,professionally done I signed it I put it,in a prepaid envelope for UPS and I,mailed it off,the process didnt take long as long as,I expected Im in a region where it does,process a little quicker but they kept,following up with me they kept calling,me and saying hey whats the status on,your claim now okay this is whats going,to happen thats how long its going to,take and it was just it made me feel,like wow I really am the customer here,and Im really happy and I couldnt have,done it without them I mean I would have,never known that information these are,people that have inside information on,how the VA works how the VA operates how,the VA approves or disapproves a case,also you have people that are extremely,dedicated to getting this done because,like I said you dont pay unless they,win they won and Im more than happy to,pay a cost associated with that because,I would have never been able to do it by,myself if there are people out there if,youve been denied for claim or youre,about to file a claim you know I went it,my way,and that was I try to do this all on my,own so Im going to do it on my own with,do it on my own and its taken years and,it went from you know me steadily,getting increase increase increase after,having to go to so many appointment to,do so many things if I just done this in,the beginning and just said that,compensating heres my file heres what,Ive got go I probably would have been a,have not probably I would have had a,much higher rating a lot sooner and I,would have had to avoid all these,frequent visits and trips to the VA we,all know that its depressing to go,there we all know that it sucks you know,I Im my first appointment was on,Saturday when I was going on vacation,and my vacation got delayed because I,didnt know Id be at the VA for seven,hours to get a couple appointments done,Im extremely happy with that,compensated and I think if you you give,them a chance youre going to be as well,because their success rate is so high,and theyre going to tell you theyre,like Im not going to lie to you that,says oh yes work we can get this done,because if they cant they dont they,dont make any money theyre not going,to charge you anything so theyre going,to look at your file and so you know,what we think we can help you,and I can testify that they did help me,and Im extremely grateful for their,help their professionalism just the way,they took care of bu

Vet Comp and Pen – Department of Veterans Affairs

welcome back making sure that our,military veterans are taken care of sir,HN finds out about the health care,challenges theyre facing in todays,sponsored segment lawmakers are turning,up the heat on the Department of,Veterans Affairs after it failed to,provide them with a plan for safely,cutting down on its increasing backlog,of disability compensation and pension,exams this comes at a critical time for,veterans trying to navigate challenges,in these economic times we have Jim Hill,the CEO of vet comp and pen a veteran,himself to talk us through some of the,struggles veterans now face pursuing,disability benefits hello Jim thank you,for your service,hi thank you its been an honor its,always frustrating to know veterans who,have fought for our country are having,such a tough time getting the medical,care they need it sure is and you know,its its somewhat ironic that when the,VA stopped accepting or performing in,persons compensation pension exams which,are required for many veterans to get,their VA disability ratings they also at,the same time cancelled the acceptance,of the private disability benefits,questionnaire or dbqs which was the,other mechanism by trends could use to,to get their medical evidence to the VA,for them to be able to adjudicate their,claims,so this doubling of the backlog that,were seeing in these claims –is is,very predictable when you turn off one,of the channels that veterans can use to,get their evidence to the VA for their,VA disability claims its troubling,these are benefits that are entitled to,veterans they are qualified for these,benefits as well absolutely you know,todays veterans many of them are very,unaware of all the different disability,benefits that they may be medically and,ethically qualified for thats one of,the specialties that we have is helping,identify all the various disabilities,veterans have and help them identify,what medical evidence is the,for them to be able to successfully,pursue those disabilities if they choose,to pursue them through the Department of,Veteran Affairs the VA system can be so,complicated veterans need an advocate,when it comes to their health care tell,us about how you fight for them and,being that advocate that they,desperately need well the main thing,that we do is we we provide a ton of,education to veterans we we go through a,very comprehensive and and,time-consuming process of evaluating all,their medical conditions and symptoms,that theyre complaining of we map those,over to potential disabilities and then,we seek out through their medical files,and records and questionnaires with them,whether theyve been diagnosed with any,of the disabilities that theyre,currently showing symptoms of and if,they havent alive times veterans dont,realize that they actually do have,medical conditions that map to,disabilities that they could be,compensated for so we encourage them to,you know go see a private provider or go,through the VA disability claims process,when seeing the exams are being,performed and and you know they they,pursue those benefits that they choose,to to go through with the VA and we,provide a very comprehensive medical,consulting package that presents the,evidence necessary for the VA to be able,to do their job very efficiently and and,hopefully get the veterans all the,benefits that their medically and,ethically qualified for well Jim thank,you so much impacting so many lives for,veterans getting the health care they,deserve for more information you can go,to vet comp and pen theres the website,and of course well have a link on our,website,ABC 4.com thank you so much Jim,thank you

Compensation and Pension Exam Do’s and Donts

hey guys im combat craig and today,were going to be talking about some,compensation and pension exam dos and,donts,lets just hop right into them and well,start with the donts,dont say youre having a great day,think about it youre at a compensation,and pension exam,if you proved your claim up enough you,wouldnt even need to be,at a compensation and pension exam the,rater would be able to just,uh give you the rating and the,compensation you deserve,so im not saying that um the reason,that youre there,the doctor is you know against you or,anything,but hes certainly not there to help you,hes there to,record uh whatever the va hired him to,record,so if he asks you hows your day going,do not say gee im having a great day,hows that possible how could you be,having a great day,youre at a compensation and pension,exam i could think about a lot of things,id much rather be doing like getting,kicked in the nuts,instead of being at a compensation and,pension exam,um its just common you know its,courteous,hes hes saying something and you would,say this to normal people hey hows your,hows your day,you know you dont want to come off as,drama or whatever say oh yeah its fine,or whatever,like thats thats you know good and,normal,in uh everyday life in a cnp exam its,all getting written down,so when this is looked at all they see,is the words,so how i asked the veteran how he was,doing,veterans said had great day so dont,want to pound this one too much,do not say youre having a great day,unless youre having a great day,and if youre having a great day what,the hell are you filing a disability for,youre miserable you have a disability,and youre under compensated,so um dont offer information,that youre not asked about this isnt a, session you know hes going to,go in and ask you some questions and,youre going to answer them,you dont need to elaborate you just,need to politely,answer the questions uh can you get up,and walk,if you hobble you hobble use a cane,whatever,do that uh do not walk and then do some,sit-ups and do some jumping jacks,just walk just do what he asks you to do,if he asks you any kind of question,keep them short and simple again these,things are going down on paper the more,youre blabbering on,its not good for you um i dont know,the closest thing i can think about is,being in court never been in court,but you know your words can and will be,used against you,uh another thing that i would say dont,do,is is dont be rude um i know this is a,little hard to do you know dont give,too much information,dont tell them youre having a good day,you dont need to be rude by saying that,stuff,i mean you know how are you doing today,im not doing well,um my days horrible like the rest of,the days right um,you dont need to worry about hurting,this guys feelings youre never going,to see him again,but dont be rude youre there to do a,job which is to be a veteran,to be evaluated right and then hes,there to do his job to be the doctor,to evaluate you dont make his job any,harder,than it needs to be and dont get,adversarial with him its not going to,help,just be polite answer his questions,short to the point you dont know how,long the time limit is you dont know,how fast hes gonna rush you through,there so dont around and talk,about whats going on on facebook or the,world in politics,so those are a couple donts um,lets talk about a couple dues do tell,the,truth um its always easier to tell the,truth anyway,because thats thats it as you remember,it,now lets add a little complication,right now youre youre uh,going to be nervous youre going in for,a ptsd claim maybe military sexual,trauma that happened a long time ago,you really havent talked about this at,all uh,and very little if that uh its gonna be,hard enough,for you to go through and and you know,talk through some of this stuff,so tell the truth um you dont need to,elaborate you dont need to make the,you know add any spice to the story um,thats just gonna come off,in disingenuous and possibly even like a,liar so just stick to the truth its,always easier to tell the truth,if you cant remember or you need to,refer to notes or something like that,totally fine stick with the truth,another thing you should do,do your research before you go to your,exam,um research your dbq hopefully you went,and got a dbq filled out to,show your side of the story because,thats what hes going to be doing,is filling out a dbq writing the va side,of the story,its not always uh an adversarial thing,um but like i said you wouldnt be at a,cnp exam if you proved up your claim,enough because you had enough medical,evidence so youre there,for more info so the reader can rate you,so revere dbq have an idea of what kind,of questions hes going to be,asking you um you know if youre in,there for migraines,this these are the terms that i should,be looking for these are the kind of,questions that hes probably going to,ask,having some kind of general idea of what,youre in there to talk about,will help you stay on track um,do pay attention to what he or she is,doing,is he like using if youre in there for,an orthopedic exam,is he using a goniometer on you its a,little plastic,protractor thing if youre in a,orthopedic exam,in almost all cases theyre measuring um,pain-off movement,pain on movement and range of motion so,if theyre just eyeballing your range of,motion how are they able to tell,yeah whatever theyve been doing it for,35 years their eyes are not calibrated,to document the difference between 12,and 13 degrees i mean that could be,a 10 rating increase and um theyre also,supposed to be,recording the pain and how much pain,youre in so make sure that you do not,let him move you into the pain go a,little farther push,through it soldier

I wanted to shoot a short video to answer a question that many veterans have when they,come to us for services.,They frequently ask, “Well, what are you guys going to do that my veteran service officer,cant do for me?”,And thats a great question.,Veteran service officers are accredited by the VA.,The accreditation process is pretty simple.,They have a very basic background check.,They have to study and pass an exam about basic VA disability claim process.,They have to be knowledgeable about the many services that are available to veterans in,their area.,Its not difficult to become a veteran service officer.,Unfortunately, theyre overworked.,They have huge caseloads in many areas, and they just cant provide the service that veterans,really need to get the compensation that they medically and ethically qualify for.,The reality is, is that filling out forms is not what veterans are struggling with to,get the benefits that they deserve.,It used to be that the forms had to be filled out manually and veteran service officers,could help veterans fill those forms out.,They could act as power of attorney to sign the forms for the veteran and file the claim,for the veteran.,This is not what veterans are struggling with to get the benefits that they deserve.,It really takes 10 minutes, on E-benefits for a veteran to file a new VA disability claim.,Its not difficult, walks you through it.,What veterans really need to get the benefits that they deserve, is they need the best medical,evidence.,Our experience shows that if you rely solely on your C&P examination to determine your,level of disability and your rating and whether or not a new VA disability claim should be,service connected, and you dont show evidence of how it is connected to either your military,service or current service-connected VA disability.,If you rely solely on that CNP examination, you may not get the result that you truly,deserve.,And this is unfortunate, and this isnt your fault.,This is because the process and the system is overloaded right now, and understaffed.,A C&P examiner might have 10 or 15 minutes to examine you and fill out a complete disability,benefits questionnaire.,They may not ask all of the questions that they really need to, to capture your level,of disability and determine what your rating should be.,That C&P examiner might not be knowledgeable about how a secondary disability may be service,connected to occurrence service connected disability.,At Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting, we can review the medical evidence that exists.,If you dont have the medical evidence that you need to support an increased rating, or,to support a secondary VA disability claim, we can help you develop that evidence.,Its very, very important for a veteran to document their level of disability as soon,as possible, because their rating might go back to the date of that documentation.,Its very important that when a veteran files a new VA disability claim, that they provide,evidence that they suffer a current disability that is compensable.,Many veterans file a claim without adequate evidence, and they dont even get a C&P exam.,They just get a denial.,Dont let that happen to you.,So, that is really the difference between professional medical consulting and veteran,service officers.,Veteran service officers are process experts.,Medical consultants are experts on the medical evidence needed to give you the best chance,of getting the rating and the compensation that youve medically and ethically qualified,for.,So please let us review your case to see if you have the medical evidence you need to,support an increased VA disability rating, or to support a secondary VA disability claim.,Thank you very much.,In information in this video is informational and not professional advice;
