CRPS VARS Response as of 1300 MST from Wash, D.C.

Dear Ms. xxxxxx,

I am responding to your inquiry concerning Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). You requested that this condition be added to the VA Schedule for Rating Disabilities (VASRD) and that it be assigned a minimum evaluation of 100 percent.

Under current VA policy, this condition may be evaluated analogously to other conditions with similar signs and symptoms. Generally, the condition would be evaluated analogously to neuritis/neuralgia of the affected nerve. These VASRD diagnostic codes take into account impaired/lost fnction of a nerve due to pain, loss of reflexes, muscle atrophy, sensory disturbances, and other symptoms. If there is more widespread involvement and additional symptoms, the condition could be rated analogously to other conditions existing in the VASRD, such as chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia.

VA is currently in the rule making process for updating the VASRD. At this time, VA cannot discuss those disabilities which will be included or modified based on proposed regulatory changes. VA invites you to review and provide comments once the rule is published in the Federal Register and is available for public comment. At that time, VA will address any and all comments and questions raised concerning the proposed rule making.

I hope this information is helpful. Thank you for your support of our nation’s Veterans and their families.

Sincerely,

------------

I have been receiving treatment at Loma Linda VA Medical Center, Loma Linda, California. I was finally diagnosed with CRPS 2 1/2 years ago. 2 years ago I begged them to amputate my right foot because of the pain. After a few rounds with the pain clinic, and uncertainty in the orthopedic clinic, I was sent to Long Beach VA for a 2nd opinion. This eventually led to my being sent to a specialist outside the VA system for another 2nd opinion. I saw an extremity specialist at Newport Orthopedic Institute, Newport Beach, Ca. He referred to the above study during the exam. His conclusion, and his recommendation for treatment was that a right below knee amputation is medically indicated. I will be having it done at Loma Linda VA, as I had so many problems at Long Beach that I do not feel I can trust anyone there. It is now simply a matter of getting a new appointment in the ortho clinic at Loma Linda, and setting a date for surgery. The chief surgeon has already told me he would abide by whatever the outside specialist recommended. The VA will furnish me with a prosthetic once it has healed sufficiently. Once this is over and done with, I should be able to walk without a stick, for the first time since 2007.

Full List of Property Tax Exemptions By State for Veterans

Michigan Sen. Glenn Anderson didn’t draft Senate Bill 104 overnight, just as Virginia State Senate Bill 540 wasn’t passed in a day. Nationwide, legislation to lessen the financial strain on qualified disabled veterans stems from a six-year effort to reduce or fully eliminate property tax liability and now, more than half of the states in the U.S. offer some sort of exemption. “If you’re a disabled veteran, in almost every single jurisdiction, you can petition your local taxing authority and you can have all of your local real estate taxes waived. Some cases, they require it’s a one-time waiver; some cases, it’s an annual waiver,” said Mike Frueh, National Director of the VA Home Loan program. “That’s a fantastic benefit.” And that benefit could save you thousands. Property Tax Exemption California, for instance, offers a Disabled Veterans’ Exemption for these veterans to reduce or eliminate their property tax liability. As long as the property is the veteran’s primary place of residence, the full value of the residence does not exceed $150,000, and total household income does not exceed $40,000, a 100 percent disabled veteran can claim a full property tax exemption. Likewise, Texas offers full exemptions for veterans with a disability rating of 100 percent. The state also offers tax exemptions for a portion of the home’s assessed value for other disability ratings. For instance, a 10 to 30 percent disability rating qualifies for an exemption of $5,000 of assessed value,...
