100% P&t With C&p Exam


Scottyp65

Question

I just thought I would drop in and pass the latest news.

While I was awarded the schedular 100% with P&T in early 06 I just went through a C&P exam for my knee. Seems that when I had an increase in the rating on the knee they wanted to take a look at the 3 yr point and voila there I was in the exam. Does seem strange at one level, but then again it is the VA and that is the way things are done. I hope the results of the exam don't change my Permament and Total rating. I know it can be changed at any time in the first 10 years but what a bummer it would be if it were, you wife & daughter on the Chap 35 benefits etc......

OK, I'm a bit confused they did a follow-up C&P for the main injury for which you received 100%? If so, and it had been scheduled than how could you be P&T? I'm not disagreeing but it just seems odd. Is this happening alot. Is the VA relooking even P&T vets? I dont want anyone to panic... I have heard nothing of the sort but this makes me curious.

Anyway just curious... again dont anyone get freaked out, I just want to clarify this and see what is going on.

Sounds to me like he was P&T for a different reason and opened a claim for knee issues so the VA reopened the P&T claim. This is an issue that all P&T vets face (and it's wrong imo, but that's the VA) when they open different claims. I almost believe the VA does this on purpose so that people stop clogging up the system with additional claims once found to be P&T (again, the VA is wrong to do that if so).

Personally, I wouldn't chance it, but the veteran DOES deserve proper compensation and it could affect DIC compensation down the road......

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
