Long time reader/lurker during which I have received loads of good info! I thought i would ask a question of my own. I am going through a claim for IBS (3rd time), I am considered a Gulf War Veteran and I am trying to claim it under presumptive condition since it has already been diagnosed by the local VA hospital here in Virginia. Following my C&P exam, the VA wants some documentation about Gulf War Illness which I will provide, but I have noticed I have a mysterious second C&P scheduled at the local VA hospital? So far, I have not received any formal information in the mail. Also I see on e benefits that a new request has showed up which states:
Due Date: Not available Status: No Longer Needed
Exam Request - [Contention]
What does Exam Request - [Contention] most likely mean in this context?
Thanks in advance,
