Question

Hello,1st post be gentle....

I requested a copy of results of my C&P exams and was told that this would delay my claim. I only filed in Sept 08 but didn't

want to slow down the process. Is this true that requesting C&P results will delay claims?

WHAT DO YOU WANT ! ! !

Ok - hopefully you just got started off here with a laugh.

I requested a copy of results of my C&P exams and was told that this would delay my claim. I only filed in Sept 08 but didn't want to slow down the process. Is this true that requesting C&P results will delay claims?

Just about any action can slow everything down.

Go to the place you had your C&P Examination at, request to fill out a

Release of Information to yourself - list the day & examiner if you know it.

Curt,

It would be easier to request a copy of your C & P exam from the VAMC not the VARO. On average when you go to the VAMC and request a copy of your C & P exam they can print it up on the spot if the doctor has completed it and signed it. If you request a copy of your C-File that is at the rating board waiting its turn to be rated then it would have to leave the rating board just to go to the ROI (release of information) to be added to their waiting list to copy your file then go back to the rating board to get in line to be rated. If you already had a C & P just go to the ROI at the VAMC and request a copy of your C & P and it will not interfere because the VAMC will not have your C-File. The only delay may be if they can't print it at that time but in my experience they normally can and if they can't print it they can mail it to you in a couple of days. Yes it can delay the decision.

Both my C&P exams were done at private DRs arranged by the VA. Guess my real question is should I still request the exam results or just wait and see what happens.

Curt,

you can still request a copy from the private doctors. You may have to sign somthing, if you have their office numbers give them a call and see what they say about sending or giving you a copy.

OK, go to the ROI (release of Information) office at the VAMC and request copies of your C & P exams. Your will have to sign the request forms and they will get them for you and then mail them to you. May take a week or so but it will not interfere with your C-File. The request forms will ask you, where your were treated and by whom. This should solve your problem. Also welcome to hadit.
