Another C&p This Time By Qtc Medical


jecsb4

Question

I have several feet issues and have overall 30% for flat feet. I filed a reconsideration and now I get call from QTC Medical - a contractor for the VA to do C & P exams.

I don't understand why I need this, I have submitted several doctor notes for 3 different doctors and the basis of my recon was new and material evidence by the VA foot doctor which was not used in their determination.

Why can't they just decide on the info they have? Does anyone have experience with QTC?

I have had 3 exams by QTC over the years and they are by and large OK. I don't think the gov gets thier money's worth though. By all means do go because if you don't it is the kiss of death.

Good luck, Stillhere

stillhere is correct- make sure you go to any C & P exam they set up for you.

Berta 7 Stillhere,

yes I will go to the C & P, I guess I would of have wanted them to decide based on the new evidence that I submitted which was not seen by the VARO. Heck, even the VA and civilian podiatrist write that only major surgies could offer any relief and I would be off my feet for six months for each foot. That would be a year!

I just got the duty to assist letter in the mail and they are asking for any additional evidence - which I have turned in. I think I will check the box that says decided the claim in 60 days.

Is it a good idea to bring this QTC dr all my foot evidence from my previous doctors?

Thanks.

Berta, is it wise to file a claim without knowing the contents of your service records? I called the VA and was told to file a claim reopening my old claim from 1990 for my knees which they denied! I requested a copy of my record but was told that I had to submit another claim in order to review my records since they were closed. Why would the VA still maintain my record after 17 years? maybe it's a good thing but I would like to know what's in there so I know what I need to do to win my claims!

Yes take the dr's treatment records with you to the exam and give them to the dr but make sure you keep a copy of what you give them. They may look at them and may not but they are required to put any information you give them in your C file.

Goodluck, Stillhere

    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?”
