  1. Are C&P exams always ordered? At what point are they ordered? I filed an appeal to the board Dec 2019, AMA, evidence. Still waiting for it to be assigned to a judge. I submitted a nexus letter from my VA psy doc at the time of filing appeal. Are C&P exams always ordered? Or will they bypass since both my VA psy docs have nexus stated in file, plus the letter from one? Thank you. Gene
  2. HI, Okay quick question and I hope I get some quick advice before its too late. Okay so I put in for an increase in my husband's ihd, and his lungs because he's had terrible residuals since he had radiation for lung cancer. We applied for the caregiver program and was approved but the lady told me that his 100% for his lungs was temporary (which I knew) and that I should be trying to get him increased or made P&T so that his overall average would never go below 70%. So I put it in. Well the rep at the VA went in and said that he was Permanent and Total...yay. So I thought they we
  3. I looked around on here and didn't see an answer (or I missed it) but hopefully someone can answer. I had a C&P at my local VA last Wednesday and was curious to if I can pull a copy of the Dr's notes from that exam from the VA site (Blue Button Report or somewhere else). I'd like to know what he wrote about the exam and try to get an idea of what he said. Thank you!
  4. Hello again. I'm posting this to a new thread although its related to a post of two days ago. I just had my C&P exam on 16 Feb for a PTSD increase. Based on my claim status online which I just checked this morning, 18 Feb, the VA sent a decision letter and closed the claim. Is it possible for the VA to reach a decision this quickly after an evaluation? This claim was submitted as a fully developed claim and the only other evidence I had in my file was a DBQ and narrative or nexus letter prepared by my treating doctor of 11 years. I'm enclosing a screenshot of a status tha
  5. Hello everyone, I hope this finds you all well. So, quick background.. I was ADMIN Separated from the military, all while going through a MEDBOARD. I was send to a Medboard for PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Inguinal nerve damage.. years of medical history showing these injuries. My lawyer during this process stated that the Military found me fit because I was going through a ADMIN separation. All my doctors wrote letters to the board stating that all diagnosis were current. The Board came back to state that they did not believe my doctors and stated that my actions were for sec
  6. I have roughly one million questions but I'll try to keep it simple. This is the first time I am appealing a denied claim (though not my first denied claim - I currently have 50% combined). Almost exactly one year after my C&P exam I finally got a denial for both of my knees). I did a HLR informal conference and now my va.gov status says "The VBA is correcting an error". Here is the decision I received on Dec. 7th after the Higher Level Review (sorry I couldn't figure out how to add image) and below that are my questions. Decision: 1. A duty to assist error has been identified
  7. If you have a vendor exam and they cancel because of Covid they are supposed to reschedule when they are able, and alert us as well through our portal of the exam status (we log onto them and check anyway just in case). However if YOU call and cancel an exam and don't reschedule (due to covid, difficulty, whatever) they are NOT reaching back out to reschedule. They are NOT closing the exams request, it just sits in stasis....and sits.....and sits....... you have to call them, or call/write/email/21-4138 US so we can contact them to let them know you are open for scheduling contact again.
  8. Hello, I have C&P exams all in one day in January. Any advice on what to expect? Here's a synopsis on what I'm up against/working with. - PTSD increase is based off several years of VA mental health treatment and a Nexus letter written by my mental health doctor, which named PTSD, Depression, Chronic Pain Syndrome with depression, Panic D/O with Agoraphobia and survivor's guilt as a diagnosis (last 3 are recently added to records). - Knee pain- VA issued me a big knee brace and my primary care (tricare) orthopedics specialist just put me an Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) brace b
  9. Hello! I filed for an increase, with a fully-developed claim, on an issue that I'm currently rated at service-connected 0%. I established my "Intent to File" on the 24th of September. The file was submitted/received on the 30th of December 2020 and moved to "Evidence gathering, review, and decision" on the 4th of January 2021. This morning (6th of January), a call came in and I was told that I would be scheduled for a C&P Exam. They needed to know if I was available due to Covid, to which I told them that I was. The woman informed me that within 2-3 weeks I would be notified of the da
  10. Okay my husband is rated as follows: 10% tinnitus, 30% Ischemic heart, 40% hearing loss and 100% temp lung malignancy. He's had that temp 100% for over two years. He's had all kinds of heart issues since the original heart rating to include two stents, a new aortic valve and chronic congestive heart failure, all of which are documented in his VA file. He is a mess and I take care of everything for him. I applied for the caregiver program and have just been approved. The people with that program told me I need to see about getting his heart rating up and to request he be rated permanent and
  11. Hi, another one for you here. Denial of entitlement to an evaluation in excess of 0 percent for migraine headaches, Jan 2020. Reason for denial by De Novo review as follows: "We have reviewed the evidence and found it does not support you experience prostrating attacks that would warrant an evaluation in excess of 0 percent. While your testimony is credible, the probative evidence does not show your reported symptoms cause extreme exhaustion, powerlessness, debilitation or incapacitation with substantial inability to engage in ordinary activities, or result in substantial work impairment."
  12. Hi, I am currently on appeal for increase rating in excess of 50% PTSD (rated as Specified Trauma and Stressor Related Disorder) and the case was remanded by BVA back to the RO. The initial PTSD C&P was done in 2014. The original rating was not rated as PTSD, but Specified Trauma and Stressor Related Disorder. A new exam was requested and completed October of 2020 and I was awarded 100% PTSD. I contested the rating as VA denied a rating of excess of 50% prior to September 2020. The RO stated the following, "The evidence does not support a change in the prior decision. Therefore, entitlemen
  13. Hey all. Hoping you guys can help me out with what to expect. In 2010 while I was active duty I went to medical over what I thought was a potential hernia. They did an ultrasound and felt around but told me they didn't see anything and that if it continued to hurt come back. I got my honorable in January of 2011. A couple months ago, the pain occasionally still persisted so I filed a claim for a hernia/groin condition and they scheduled me within a few weeks. I just went to my appointment and the Dr. asked me if I had the hernia taken care of yet. I told him that I was never diagnose
  14. Hello all, I had my C&P virtually yesterday for my new claim of PTSD. I was just wondering what the average turn around is these days? Last year, I had a decision on increasing my ratings in four days. I'm sure it will not be that fast, but when should I go into and obsessively start hitting refresh? Thanks in advance, Dawn
  15. I was awarded 100% PT for several issues about a year ago. My code sheet (from my FOIA request and confirmed verbally by my VSO, and then by a VA phone rep) indicates that everything rating is 'static' except for my back issue(40%) and radiculopothy for both legs (20% each). Those two items are listed with a re eval scheduled for about 8 mos from now. I am confused how I am P&T but still having to do a Re eval. To make things more confusing I am 100% static for mental health stuff. Even if the reduced my back I would still be 100% for MH stuff alone. Any thoughts?

  18. Good morning received letter from VA I was denied my claim for cervical fusion. First I am at 20 percent Lumbar degenerative disc disease, and 10 percent for each leg Radiculopathy. I was a crew chief on CH46 helicopter with about 2000 hrs of flying and at least 500 hrs on Nvg's I has denied no service connection, even when I supplied case studies from the Army and Navy on neck pain and shoulder pain from wearing NVGs for period of time. Second I prouder two letters from two different doctors that my current problem is due to military life. C@P exam lasted only 15 mins and that person said I
  19. Hello, I got a copy of my C and P of my tinnitus exam, and the doctor listed why he thought I was service connected. Listed my MOS that I had in the Army. Ok good. I read on and then he listed and MOS I never held and stated that since I held this MOS, I should be service connected too. So my question is, will anyone ever notice this incorrect additional MOS listed on my exam and go back and remove my 10% they gave me? Thank you
  20. Can i walk into the VA Regional Office to get a copy of my C&P exam on the spot? . They do not have them at the VAMC because they were done with QTC.
  21. Good afternoon to every one, my question as follows after c@p exam completed how much long will it be to get answer will it take to get up or down? Does it usually take 6 months to get 100 percent temp disability for surgery? I had back surgery back in July and I am still waiting, yes it is service connected, Thanks Ken
  22. Hey all, Bit of an update. I have been SC for PTSD at 30% and tinnitus at 10%, denied for two other conditions and my TBI claim was "deferred". I had my TBI C&P about a month ago and in the process I've recieved two notifications on va.gov that two more exams have been scheduled. Well I called VES today after not hearing from them about any new appointments for two weeks and the rep on the phone told me that there was no new exam requested...that the VA actually just "kicked back" the C&P two times. They said they are "reworking" the exam. Anyone experience this before
  23. I have been waiting for C@P exam for a while, I called the VA and they told me to QTC. When I called QTC about scheduling my exam they told me there is only one physician with in a 100 miles of me, and they have to call them to see what is is open. Of coarse QTC had to leave message to the physician for call back, QTC asked me to call back in a week. Which I did, same thing happen, oh ya week three same thing. I call the VA and asked them if this is normal. one physician in 100 miles and I live in Boston, and the physician must not need the work because of no call backs. Has any one had this
  24. After making a written request for a copy of my C@P exam, usually how long does it take to receive a copy. Thanks Ken
  25. After higher level review, VA is correcting 3 errors. Letter states that VA is developing for a examination to consolidate conflicting information about my mental health condition. I have a C&P Friday. What should I expect in this one?
