Friend Called In For Eval And New C&p


calnight

Question

GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH A GOOD FRIEND I SERVED WITH. HE WAS CALLED IN FOR A EVAL AND C&P FOR HIS IU FOR PTSD. HE HAS BEEN IU FOR 3 YEARS AND YES HE IS P&T. HE IS NOT WORRIED ABOUT IT HE HAS THE CURRENT MEDICAL EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT HIS RATING. PLEASE BE READY THIS I FEEL WILL BE THE NORM. SEE YOUR DOCTOR HAVE CURRENT MEDICAL EVIDENCE IN YOUR HANDS. AND P&T REALLY MEANS NOTHING THEY THE VA WANTS EVERY CHANCE THEY GET TO GET YOU OFF THE PAYROLL. YOU MAY HAVE WON THE BATTLE TO GET YOUR BENIFITS BUT THE WAR WILL NEVER END WITH VA.

I would say that getting 100% Schedular P&T is rare and IU is a valid and good way to at least be fair to a Veteran who cannot work due to their injury or disability. So it has its place. However Veterans who have PTSD rated 100% due to IU should get P&T if they don't go back to work before the scheduled exam. That is my opinion. I wish it was just 100% and nothing else but they are not going to change that are they?

it will be more educational to learn what the outcome of his experience is, are they really going after reducing the rating or are they verifying his continued inability to hold employment. The fact that there are now many people in the treatment system making statements to the effect PTSD is treatable and has it's ebbs and flows. Thats great but how or who is going to give you a decent job and deal with the fact that 6-9 months of the year we can't deal going face to face with "customers" or dealing with co-workers or employers? How do they propose dealing with this scenario? People like Craig and Buyer are going to make us see red yet....

UPDATE: OK MY FRIEND WENT TO HIS C&P. THE SHRINK TOLD HIM THE C&P WAS TO SEE IF ANY IMPROVMENT FOR HIS PTSD. HE SAID IT TOOK ABOUT 20 MIN. HE GAVE THE SHRINK HIS CURRENT MEDICAL EVIDENCE WITCH SUPPORTED HIS CLAIM. ALSO THE SHRINK TOLD HIM THAT THE VA IS LOOKING HARD AT IU FOR PTSD. THE SHRINK SAID THERE WAS NO IMPROVMENT IN HIS PTSD. MY FRIEND WANTED ME TO PASS ON TO ALL VETS TO HAVE CURRENT MEDICAL EVIDENCE ON HAND EVEN IF YOU ARE P&T. KEEP UP ON YOUR MEDS. SEE YOUR DOCTOR AT LEAST 1 EVERY 4 MONTHS. I WILL POST WHAT THE VA SAYS ABOUT HIS IU.

    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?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
