My Vietnam Vet brother had his C&P Exams last week. The physical lasted 30 minutes. The Psychiatric exam lasted 20 minutes! How can they determine PTSD, schizophrenia, and competency within 20 minutes ? They wouldn't allow me to be present - even though he wanted me there -- said it was their "policy". So the eBenefits claim status has changed to "Preparation for Decision". Does anyone know if the VA shares the VA medical reports (conducted by QTC) from the C&P Exams?
I was proposed to be incompetent, so I presented all the evidence possible to convince the V.A. that although my injuries are extensive; I am competent. I waited for about 1 1/2 years for the V.A. to decide that I am in fact able to handle may own affairs and rate me "competent". According to the letter I am rated as competent and I shall continue to receive my full payment. However, I have not received any back payment or retroactive payment. When I called the Hot Line they told me that it will take between 10-45days to process. It is now 97days later and I still have not seen any action taken by the V.A.. As I continue to call them, they state that I do rate a large sum for my retroactive pay but, no one knows who to contact. I am at a loss. I don't know who to contact to get this moving or why it is taking them so long. Does anyone have experience with this.....? I really just want to pay the bills that stacked up while I could not work and had no way of paying..... I am not trying to build a savings account. Please anyone advise.
