  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

C&p

Question

Hello, everyone,just want to let you know whenever you have a C&P, after you finish take time to go by Release of information, and fillout form 10-5345 so you can get the result of you exam as fast as possible.I am helping a veteran and he is also my friend with his claim.He is 50% service connected for post-traumatic stress disorder and he though he was low balled so we file a reconsideration in October of 2007 and in the mean time he was diagnose with DMII march 2008,so we went ahead and file a claim for that,Ok we live in Alabama where his claim was submit and Montgomery regional office send his claim to Ronoake Va Regional office and they didn,t send all of the evidence that was send to them,so Ronoake send him a letter asking for more evidence and we apply by sending copy's of copy's that we had already send to the Montgomery regional office and in April Ronoake send him a letter requesting a C&P.OK,the C&P was schedule June 2 2008. After C&P we mail a letter to release of information and yesterday the 7 of June five days later we had the full health summary,as you know when you apply for total benefits or unemployability va pull your whole C-file and review it.Lets get to the good part,i said that his claim was send to Ronoake Va and that Ronoake order a c&p,and also we got c&p heatlh summary back in five days,so we review it and i never see so many discrepancy.The C&p was done in Tuskegee Al Vamc,but vamc in Tuskegee review his c-file back from 2002 up to 2008 and they pull out of his c-file everything they could, to get his claim denied in other words they sent to Ronoake exactly what they want to and what they sent is the only thing that Ronoake can go by,seem like Tuskegee got a email from Norma J.Perez vamc Temple Texas.We have copys of all of his treatment records and we are working on them now trying to get them in to Ronoake Va before they decide his claim.I just thought everyone should know about this and how tricky Va is so get your C&p file as soon as you can. I will keep everyone updated

You have proof that Norma Perez sent an email to Roanoak telling them how to deny claim.

If you have the paper you should rat her out to the press or one of the Veterans groups like IAVA.org so that something can be fone about these crooks.

....or, maybe Norma Perez was sending information/instructions to her people that had been send to her. In other words, maybe she was just passing on "the message" that her supervisor had passed to her. Maybe ALL the VA PTSD/psychology staff at EVERY VAMC got the same message from "on high" and Norma Perez was the unlucky employee that got caught passing it on to her staff................hmmmmmmm?

Then again, we know that that would never happen..............

Wow, Was only the reconsideration denied? or reconsideration and unemployability denied?

Could be the reconsideration only required a portion of the Cfile? dunno here. To me, the whole Cfile should be used. I've had a c&p exam ala carte. No visible signs of Cfile in the room, no signed disclosure statement Cfile read by medical examiner. Meaning, I get the impression Cfile summary is located on a computer file was used and paperwork is there if needed. I believe 'ain't over till the paperworks done.'

Last time I heard, vets are due disability compensation by law. So why do great guys like you and your freind, veterans here at Hadit, have to fight the 'law' thats supposed to provide the support needed?

I wonder if your freind can get this corrected without a 'redone' C&p? I dont know, but wish you well in your good works.

I believe exam results need corrected because they are part of a C-file. Aren't Cfile's permanent until death do us part and even into the beyond??

My BIG question

"How does a vet 'swiftly' refute and correct only parts of the exam results? without delaying or jeopardzing the stage the claim is at? or even after a seemingly ok rating?"

      If you spend any time reading VA case law you’ll come across the phrase less likely, more likely than not and so on. In the VA Clinicians Guide for Disability Examination it lays out how these are weighted.

      After a PTSD/Unspecific MDD Diagnose From the VA Dr's

      The gold standard for diagnosing PTSD is a structured clinical interview such as the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS-5). When necessary, the PCL-5 can be scored to provide a provisional PTSD DSM 5 diagnosis.

      Any clinical clinician such as MD ,Psychiatrist even a L.C.S.W. (Certified)can perform the Diagnostics Evaluation Employed by the the VA

      ...They just need to figure out your symptoms and put together a list of your symptom's that you possess or show from the evaluation...I am not 100% Sure just how they do this ?

      being I am not a Dr or clinical clinician 

      Once a Diagnoses of PTSD is given they try to set you up with a Therapist to help with your New dx And how to adjust or cope with the Anxiety and Depression the PTSD can cause.

        you learn the tools to cope with and depending how severe your symptoms are ? 

       They test /screen you with phychoeducational type therapy treatment usually at first.

       Warning  some of this therapy can be very rough on a Veteran  from holding on to guilt  from the trauma its self or you maybe in a  ''stuck point''from memories and guilt or from the stressor's or anything that reminds you of the trauma you endured.

      The therapy works  even if we think it don't,  I recommend Therapy for all PTSD Veterans  it could very well save your life once the correct therapy is in place and the Veteran makes all his Clinical Appointments.

      I still have Combat PTSD it probably will never be cured completely but we can learn the tools it takes to cope with this horrible diseases 

      even learning breathing techniques  Helps tremendously during a panic attact.

      I have guilt from the war in Vietnam  ( I ask my self what could I have done to make a better outcome/difference?..and also I am in what the therapist calls stuck points. working on that at present once a week for 90 minutes.  I am very fortunate to have the help the VA gives me and I am lucky I have not turned to alcohol or drugs to mask my problem.

      But I have put my family through a living hell with my angers of burst.and they all stood by me the whole time years and years of my family life was disrupted because of me and my children &spouse  never deserved it one bit.

      That's all I want to say about that.

      At least I am still around. and plan to be tell my old age dying day.
    • No timeframe gotta love that answer it’s even better when you ask 1800 people or call the board directly they’ll say you’ll know sooner then later. I had mine advanced and it was about 2 months later until I had the decision in my hand which seems forever but in the present system in 2016 lightning fast...
        • Thanks
    • I am serviced connected for ankylosing spondylitis back in 1985. I had a C&P exam on 7-7-19 since I am asking for an increase in my cervical, thoracic, and lumbosacral ratings. After speaking with the DAV to find out progress and info on my exam, the Rep. noted sort of what I expected. Radiculopathy was noted and ROM was 0-15 for cervical, and 0-25 for back. I am currently rated as Cervical 30%, Thoracic 10%, and Lumbosacral 40%. The main question that I have is relating to the thoracic 10% and lumbosacral 40%. I am confused on these two. Is Lumbosacral separate from the thoracic/others ? Since my back ROM is at 0-25, does this mean that my thoracic might increase from the 10% to a higher rating ? I am confused how they break down my ratings from cervical at 30%, Thoracic at 10%, and Lumbosacral at 40%. Also, with the radiculopathy, is this something that they will rate also ? I am currently at 90% total combined for all my disabilities. I hope this helps for someone to give me advice/answers.
