If your DEC after the age of 55 do they do an annual or bi annual follow up? I am way over that age!

When I received my reply... (reassessment TPI) it did indeed specify my disability.

The letter goes on.... " ...{VAC) has completed a review of your total and permanent incapacity designation.
We have determined that you continue to meet the VAC definition of totally and permanently incapacitated due to your ... "
bla bla bla.

Trying hard to remember or find a follow up med form for my doctor to have filled out which I would have a copy of that would have triggered TPI continuity.
I must have done that... or a QOL.

MarieH... finding an available doctor let alone a competent one is a son of a 'bee'.
Top that off with them dealing with VAC  Sad

When you receive your VAC671 it should specify which disability should be reassessed. If this is not stated ask "VAC" for clarification.

yes, I wonder about this form, as I have not had a family doctor in over a decade, when I feel sick/get hurt I simply attend an out patients clinic

thanks for your response Johnny, I am almost 55 and I got the form in the mail last week, however I got it a little bit earlier (2 years in Oct) because I mentioned to my CM last May that my family doctor is retiring in Nov and I would not have a Doctor to fill out the form, then she said she would send it earlier. I think it is best for me to have it fill out by my current doctor than a doctor who does not know me at all or have the stress to find one to fill it out. At least this one did fill out my SISIP forms twice. An OT could be an option also. I was hoping to read that some people did give a sheet to their doc with the questionnaire.

Hi Marie H - I will be coming up to this soon also. I'm over 55 and have heard they may not do it. But that could be rumor also. But one idea I had for you. As part of my AA appeal, I have asked them to send out an OT too my house to do an assessment. This may be something you can ask VAC to do for you, as part of your 2 yr reassessment. I was willing to get one myself if they did not agree to pay for it. Anyone know if this will fly? And does everyone on DEC get a 2 yr reassessment?

Hi All, I am wondering if any of you are giving a sheet stating your medical problems and how you feel etc…with the VAC671 form to your doctor to help him out to fill out the form properly, the reason I am asking is because the form is asking a lots of information in the past (such as treatments and medications used to stabilise my condition, my limitations et..) that I doubt my doctor is aware of because he was not my doctor at that time and every time I keep telling some of my problems it is like he is just  ignoring me. I want him to put some emphasis on my VAC disabilities. When he filled out the SISIP form he did not write all my problems and all this is really adding anxiety. This is my two years re-assessment and I do not have the initial form. Do you think the Doctor will be offended if I am giving him a sheet because I really want this form to be properly filled. Appt with him cannot be more than 10 mins at a time, and out of the office as quickly as possible.

Marie

Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity;
a specialized functional capacity assessment; an employability assessment...
So none of these assessment forms are available to view?

The DEC VAC 671 Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity has been updated on VAC's website, however, it does not seem as though they updated the functional capacity assessment and the employability assessment yet.

Here is some info for you Artie:

A DEC decision must be based on evidence in relation to the health problem(s) for which the Veteran is eligible for the Rehabilitation Program.

The following objective evidence must be considered in making a DEC decision:

the prognosis regarding the program-eligible health problem(s); and
the impact of the program eligible health problem(s) on the Veteran’s:
functional capacity; and
employability.


Information to evaluate these factors may be obtained as required from sources including, but not limited to, the following:

medical/rehabilitation reports, which reflect the Veteran’s current health status and functional capacity;
the VAC 671 Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity;
a specialized
functional capacity assessment; an employability assessment and/or a vocational assessment obtained from a vocational rehabilitation provider;
Service Income Security Insurance Plan - Long Term Disability (SISIP-LTD) reports and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) – Disability Pension reports; and
any other relevant information needed to make a DEC decision


Specialized assessments, such as employability and functional capacity assessments, may not be required in all cases. For example, the medical report that accompanies the application may provide sufficient evidence to make a DEC decision for a Veteran with a clear and significant loss of functional capacity and employability.

Where evidence indicates that, with additional medical, psycho-social or vocational rehabilitation, the Veteran could have potential to regain capacity for suitable gainful employment, the Veteran should not be found to have met the criteria for a DEC designation.

You may have to google it to get that form. Almost, impossible to find it anymore of VAC portal.
I am dealing now with SISIP/Manulife shi***. Apparently, doctors statement on their Manulife form, that i am not capable of any employment is not enough! They want supporting documents.

Bast#$%^.

I dug up my old VAC671e form. I did not fill it out, that is the 7 - 8 page form that my doctor filled out. I only signed the consent etc. and yes Yump, CVVRS (CANVET) is involved also.

Oh I was a nervous wreck alright. My advice, pace yourself and remember to breathe. Oddest thing was that application was EXTREMELY pdq in my case to get approved. It took one week because cm's do have the authority to approve you TPI esp. if all your documents and ducks are in a row. But I do NOT want to give anyone false hope here as everyone sit. is different.

BTW bosn, I understand if it's hard to get out your door. Get your cm to visit YOU, It is what they can or are supposed to be doing. Hell, PEI ain't the size of Australia.

Stay very well all...
