Hypertension is on the Agent Orange list. I am on medication. I am overseas so I won't get a C&P. So I went to my heart doctor with a DBQ. The VA standards are much higher than the American Heart Association. According to the VA if it's presumptive you don't have to prove anything. Is that correct? Thank you.
Although a particular rating may be 'presumptive', the veteran must still meet the standards and qualifiers that exist to be eligible. That you're overseas doesn't mean you won't get a C & P exam, that will depend on where you are and the availability of examiners. If you believe that you're eligible for a benefit, apply and VA will tell you what to do to complete your claim. Good luck sir.
