Question

I got my letter from the C&P office and they have me booked all day so I called them and asked why. They told me I was booked for a 5 hour comp exam with this PA, I am going from 10-12 lunch break and then 1230 - 3pm, I will probably only be there until 2 he will use the other hour to write the exam up.

Please tell me this is common.

Has anyone every had this long of a comp exam for range of motion of the ankles, knees, SI, shoulders and hands. Along with the HD but there isn't much to that one.

I am thinking this is a nice set up job for a denial.

ruby, I had one back in 03 that lasted 5 hours. I twas set for 2pm and the Doctor stayed until 7pm finishing it up.

It was on the docs time and the exam went very well.

Let them take as long as needed and you will be just fine. Besides, you have a lot of issues to deal with and you want a thourough exam.

Thanks J

I am really freaking out, first I thought they had to give me a specialist and when I found out it was a PA, I freaked and now a scheduled 5 hr exam. I am going to start taking the xanax I never take, I think I need it.

One of my doctors today said it might be a residual functional capacity exam. That makes more sense. At least I know that is entailed in this type of exam.

This sounds like this may be a Residual Functional Capacity Assessment exam. I just had one done in January. When I set up the appointment they scheduled me for 5 hours. However when I went for my appointment the PT said it would probably take only about 3 hours since I am able to go through each routine without having to take long breaks in between. On the other hand some people need to take long breaks therefore taking more time.

Good luck!
