Plantar Fasciitis rating question

Hi, I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis at the C&P exam for my MEB, though the rating system states you get rated if your issue is not resolved by orthotics. I’ve never even attempted to get orthotics but the examiner said the issue is moderate and affects functionality in the report. Because I haven’t ever attempted to get orthotics does this mean the rating will be 0%? Thank. PS, I had an MRI show nothing on the feet a year prior, but the doctor said fasciitis doesn’t always show up as it can be micro tears.

I am very curious to see what comes from this. The verbiage that discusses plantar fasciitis gave me the impression that is dependent on what the provider grades it as in terms of mild, moderate or severe. Moderate diagnosis for you is hopefully enough to designate some sort of percentage.

Inability to wear military footwear, "severe" pain which limits the ability to walk/stand for prolonged time/distance

If you already have the condition rated by your PCM. You should be able to file an appeal with the VA for the rated condition and upload that documentation. Also when things are uploaded into your case file by your PEBLO, it should be a part of the package that gets sent to the VA

I have not gotten that far in the MEB process yet to file an appeal but thank you. And I thought your PEBLO only sends up unfitting conditions.

I heard your VA rep (MSC) is the one you claim all your service-connected conditions with.

Yes the VA rep is the person you file all conditions with.

No, you are only referred to the MEB for unfitting, during the whole process you CLAIM EVERYTHING with the VA and let them sort out at the PEB what all your unfitting conditions are.
