Well after 7 months my husband received a denial today. I was so disappointed I wanted to cry. It is based on income from my employment that ended shortly before we applied. They counted it as if I would continue to earn it for the next year. Otherwise with medical deductions we could have been eligible for a good partial award. The only good thing is they included an evr with the dates filled in beginning the month we applied. We also have to fill out a new medical expense report. We will get these submitted right away. I sure hope his claim will not start from the bottom of the pile again. Another long wait will be devasting to us.
