I got my masking device approved by Bluecross... after sending the prescription to VAC.. does that mean I'm automatically going to get a 5% increase?

By the way, does anyone have any experience with the masking device? Is it beneficial at all?
They also prescribed me a pillow speaker thing.

the masking device works very well for me it just makes a white noise and the pillow speaker comes with it and you plug it into the masking device so you can put the speaker under your pillow i set it to thunderstorms and listen its pretty cool.  as to your ? about the 5% i was at 2% from 2008 when doc prescribed the masking device they had to bump up my tinnitus to 5% to get the masking device and the device put it up another 5% i think the max you can get is 12% tinnitus i am not 100% sure on that but i am sure thats what they told me as well hearing loss and tinnitus are separate claims
