  • Hi. I'm reaching out in hopes you can help with a question I have. My son was told by the med staff at Dover they could only file for the one condition that was most unfitting which they identified as POTS or heart arrythmia. He received his ratings which came back as 10% DOD /100% VA. I'm a bit surprised that the DOD component did not hit 30% (long story and many less than honest/moral acts by the AF docs) but he seems very unwilling to wait out fighting it and I am honestly concerned about his safety. I have a feeling that not all of his paperwork was submitted and some inaccurate paperwork was submitted but he was told "don't worry about it". 1. Is there anything he can do after he gets out if he signs the form 2. someone from the VA told him that this was golden and he didn't need to worry about the DOD piece. HELP????

    Unfortunately, the DOD only rates a person based on the conditions that make them unfit for service. Heart conditions are notorious for being hard to rate high on due to the Heart Rating schedule. You can go to militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com to look up his specific heart condition. It will tell you exactly what qualifies for 10%, 30%, 50%, and so on. He should have a copy of his VA C&P exam. From that and that website, you should be able to figure out why he was rated at 10%. Godspeed. The VA will take care of him, but it looks like he will have to figure out this next phase of life without tricare.
