Should be ready in about two weeks or maybe a litter sooner. Just make sure on Monday that you drop by the ROI office and sign a release so they will mail you copies.

Well, if all you are going for Monday is a hearing test.......and she is knowledgeable on the testing machine....then I see no problems. Now, if you were going to be fitted with hearing-aids then that would be another story. After all, when we did our induction physicals, we didn't have an "audiologist" perform our hearing tests, did we?

Nope, we had some corpsman who was 19 years old, and it seemed to work okay with them. B)

you are right on that fact.what bothers me about it is ,will this non-audiologist write an opinion as to the validity of my hearing claim and will it hold water?

According to the CFR, the audio C&P must be performed by an audiologist:

§ 4.85 Evaluation of hearing impairment.

(a) An examination for hearing impairment for VA purposes must be conducted by a state-licensed audiologist and must include a controlled speech discrimination test (Maryland CNC) and a puretone audiometry test. Examinations will be conducted without the use of hearing aids.

I would not say anything negative during the exam, but I would try to find out the testers credentials. If you find out that she is not a audiologist, then you need to contact your RO right away and let them know that this exam is not acceptable for rating puroposes according to 38 CFR 4.85.

I would wait until I get the results of the exam first, though. You never know, it may fall in you favor. It's nice to have this information if it doesn't, though.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
