Presumptive Illness VA Claim(s)

After my doc told me she thinks I may have fibromyalgia, I did a lot of research and reading. Something led me to “Gulf War Syndrome,” and under it, on the VA website, it listed presumptive illnesses that don’t require service members to show it was service connected. Fibromyalgia is listed there, and I meet the requirements to be considered a Gulf War vet. Cool! Well, with more reading, I’m starting to notice a trend with the VA denying those claims, and either asking for proof, or telling the veteran that the presumptive illness was caused by another condition, or something else. I intend to put a claim in once I receive official diagnosis from rheumatologist. I am curious to know if anyone has been successful, or know of someone who’s successfully filed and been granted SCD for a Gulf War Syndrome presumptive illness. Thanks in advance.

I was thinking of getting this done but don’t know who to ask, or where to go in the VA to get put on the registry. I have an appointment tomorrow, and will ask around about it. Thanks!

Contrary to many beliefs, the VA is actually very welcoming.

You would want to connect with the OIF/OEF coordinator who will assign you a case manager to get you the proper exams.

Additionally you may want to looking into assigning a power of attorney to a VSO such as the American Legion, Disabled American Vets or Order of the Purple Heart. Every County in the USA also has a Veterans office that can refer you to a VSO.

The main benefit to assigning a POA to a VSO is that they will have direct access to the databases in which your claims are being processed.

Your research was correct:

GAO Report Says VA Denying Gulf War Syndrome Claims at Astronomical Rate

A recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found that the Department of Veterans Affairs benefits officials denied 87 percent of Gulf War illness-related claims in 2015, the most recent year data was available. The rate has gone up over the past five years; however, for all other claims, the VA denied disability claims at a rate of 43 percent.
That is tantamount to saying that Gulf War Illness does not exist.
The Veterans' Benefits Administration's Regional Office (RO) in Waco, TX has denied 92 percent of claims related to Gulf War illness. Only Roanoke, VA denied claims at a higher rate (95%).

The report found serious and persistent problems with how the VA handles the complicated Gulf War benefits claims, ranging from poorly trained examiners to inconsistent methods of handling claims in different regions of the country.
The rate of claims denials at the RO in Boston was the lowest in the country at 47%.
The VA estimates that 44% of the 700,000 service members who served in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War have developed such symptoms as joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome and neurological problems after returning home from war. The illnesses are believed to have been caused by exposure to toxic elements like smoke from burning oil wells, depleted uranium and chemical warfare agents such as mustard gas.

GAO investigators found that the VA does a poor job educating medical examiners charged with identifying the illness.
While the VA estimates that 44% of Gulf War veterans suffer from Gulf War Illness, only 26% of those veterans have had their claims approved. Clearly, the system is broken.

This is what I’m afraid of. I wonder what the best course of action is to get a claim approved under the Gulf War presumptive illness is. It’s like they are going against their own policy, and as the article says, it’s all dependent on who the veteran gets to diagnose, and review the claim.

One of the biggest issues is that there are actually two gulf wars periods (1991-1992) and the latter which was 2002 to present. Most of the presumptive service connections are tied to the 1991-1992 period.

It becomes more challenging to get a presumptive connected claim after that unless you have evidence that the condition occurred during, or was aggravated while you were entitled to active duty pay.

Yea, I’m in the second gulf war period. I have evidence of manifestation of some symptoms of fibromyalgia before separation. With the VA, you never know what To expect

oddpedestrian- I attempted, briefly, to find the GAO report you are citing in Post #7- but had little luck, without opening whole host reports on the US Department Veterans Affairs- (see below as example….) by the GAO! Was hoping you might have posted something…..

Federal homeownership assistance programs generally are not designed to accelerate equity building (home equity is the difference between the value of a home and the amount owed on a mortgage). For example, programs that offer grants for down-payment assistance can provide a one-time boost to home equity. However, these programs are not specifically designed to accelerate equity building—that is...

TREA, MOAA and the Veteran Law Blog do great work I highly recommend those three organizations over the more popular ones like DAV, VFW and AL. They all advocate for vets but some are more political on what they support on behalf of veterans and that doesnt sit to well with me.

oddpedestrian- thanks, for kind response and your thought’s as well. By and large concur- so thought might follow up with a few things:
  • In “vain” of VSO’s might want to see, for example ww.va.gov web address- https://www.va.gov/vso/VSO-Directory.pdf accessed appx. 0409 AM EDT on 04 SEP 2018 and below attached file downloaded from above US DVA web-site: “VSO-Directory.pdf
  • As well thought would follow up on issue this thread “Gulf War Syndrome” see below…..
VA Denying Gulf War Syndrome Claimsfrom “The Enlisted Association of Western Pennsylvania (TREA98)” for example only at web-address: https://trea98.org/the-enlisted-ass...letter-main-page-2017/august-2017-newsletter/ re-accessed on 04 SEP 2018 Appx. 0322 AM EDT; below in “italics” quoted-cited in part from above listed web-address:

The VA estimates that 44 percent of the 700,000 service members who served in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War have developed such symptoms as joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome and neurological problems after returning home from war. The illnesses are believed to have been caused by exposure to toxic elements like smoke from burning oil wells, depleted uranium and chemical warfare agents such as mustard gas.
GAO government investigators found that the VA does a poor job educating medical examiners charged with identifying the illness.
While the VA estimates that 44% of Gulf War veterans suffer from Gulf War Illness, only 26% of those veterans have had their claims approved
.

Think issues such as this- i.e. “unseen” wounds, particularly OEF/OIF, which are in fact “SUPPOSEDLY the signature wounds” - Insomnia, Multi-Symptom Illness (formerly Gulf War illness- unless changed back…) PTSD, Depression, etc.…. are hardest for “veterans” and families to in fact cope with, and very tragic-IMO- that the US Organization supposedly responsible for their proper “diagnosis” and “treatment” – the US DVA- is more than “severely lacking” ….. as if the US DVA is not doing their jobs in this regard it then places the “UNDUE BURDEN” (for those VETS who can get treatment “civil” sector) on the “civil” sector…….IS THIS FAIR????????

Once again, know local VET, that was dropped by “local” doctor- whom actually contributed greatly to “saving” their life, due highly “inadequate care “Gulf Coast VA System/VISN16” - simply, more than likely as they were at their “wits” end….. and issues this VET had well beyond the “knowledge”, “expertise” and “experience” of a local “primary care” physician…..

This, simple case, all be it one VET, raises-IMO- many issues… such as if the US DVA- “social medicine at its finest” cannot adequately “treat” veterans per their US Congressional “mandate’ then why should the US DVA continue to “exist” at all and simply, via other US GOV Agencies’ (Office US Surgeon General, etc.…), … up the “ante”-so to speak - on the US Civilian medical sector in regards to “education, training, and research” into these issues……. And create a system where “veterans” simply see whom they want in the “civil” medical sector….. instead of the US DVA “Proper”….???????

Anyway- OTHERS, thoughts on matter would be more than welcome…..??????

oddpedestrian- “very” informative web-site “TREA98” especially “CAPITOL CONTACTS” at bottom, (might want to see below “image/file”: “Partial Screen Shot trea98.org- CAPITOL CONTACTS- 04 SEP 2018 appx. 0403 AM EDT.jpg”) with mailing, phone and email contacts US GOV elected officials…. Also agree with your comments Post# 17- “TREA, MOAA and the Veteran Law Blog do great work I highly recommend those three organizations over the more popular ones like DAV, VFW and AL. They all advocate for vets but some are more political on what they support on behalf of veterans and that doesnt sit to well with me.

Also, myself included, and always do not get it right as many “Citation Systems” out there, have had utilize several and tend to get jumbled in my head, but think we should all try and be “cognizant” of citing others etc… might want to see below:

CitationFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia; for example, only, at web-address: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citation accessed on 04 SEP 2018 appx. 0340 AM EDT
Anyway, oddpedestrian- thanks much, and unfortunately, and yet again, might have missed link or cite to it, but TREA98 did not “cite” the exact “GAO” Report we are now all “quoting”……. Would be interesting to see the “original” report….. but as one can see hopefully above post’s “whole” lot of reports at “gao.gov “… ….. (see for example only, below image/file “Screen Shot GAO_GOV-Search Words_Gulf War Syndrome_04 SEP 2018 appx. 0357 AM EDT.jpg”)

IMO- those “VET’s” with “unseen wounds”- Gulf Coast Region, think “face” undue “scrutiny” in some “select” cases even though they are perhaps doing exactly as they are in fact supposed to with “exercise” and therapy.. etc….(if can do it-get it) in lieu of “opioid’s” for pain, etc…. (Furthermore, know “some” VET's that 'wonder 'if going have “Law Enforcement” at their house, or pulled over by “Law Enforcement” for basically nothing, everyday they wake up…… oh, well, apparently that is just the “Gulf Coast Region” ….. and another “aspect” “veterans” should be aware of want move this area… Oddly some supposedly mentioned this to numerous Gulf Coast VA PAX- like OEF/OIF-Chaplains,et.al. as well ACLU-etc.. and little-to no assistance .....)

oddpedestrian- thanks and hope, as usual, some of this “helps” at least “one” other veteran out there…..??? (Per your "suggestion" stopped utilizing "colors"- is "readability "any better- by chance- oddpedestrian????)


ANYONE ELSE HAVING CONSTANT ISSUES THIS WEBSITE….??????

oddpedestrian- KLove407- per gsfowler- at post #4 this Thread, cited below- in part- in “italics”:

….You would want to connect with the OIF/OEF coordinator who will assign you a case manager to get you the proper exams. Additionally you may want to looking into assigning a power of attorney to a VSO such as the American Legion, Disabled American Vets or Order of the Purple Heart. Every County in the USA also has a Veterans office that can refer you to a VSO.The main benefit to assigning a POA to a VSO is that they will have direct access to the databases in which your claims are being processed.”

I once again attempted to find further data on Veterans’ from the “Gulf War Era- OIF/OEF” on “exposure” and “approved claim” from the “National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics”, and had very little “luck”….

However, did find some more interesting things as a result, thought would post here, as well as other “data” web-sites folks like GSFowler-Chaplain Charlie, and myself have utilized and mentioned various Threads… as think “VET’s” should know about these “resources” so can in “fact” perhaps, to simply coin a phrase “fish” for themselves amongst all these “resources”- hopefully in support of a “claim” if warranted….IMO…???????

So might want see the below, and perhaps, Super Moderators as GS Folwer know how to “utilize” “National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics” better than myself and can point “VET’s” in right direction to “relevant” US DVA data on this HOT Topic of “VETERAN EXPOSURE” and resultant “effects on their health- both physical and mental…..????????
