    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

This is bad. You need to find that missing document. OPC just means they are REVERSING the grant because of a missing doc.

FIND THAT MISSING DOCUMENT NOW!

OPC usually stands for Out Patient Clinic. Which is where they may be doing your C&P.

I have NO idea what CRYPTO is talking about.

I agree with Larry, it is nothing to worry about as long as you get a GOOD C&P exam it does'nt matter where it is done. It may just be a matter of convienience (for them of course)...

JMHO

Please do not do this type of joke on Hadit. It really is disruptive and can scare or discourage Members. It may be considered funny but not here.

CAUTION:

NEVER believe what they tell you on the #800 number. If they have you scheduled for a C&P.....YOU HAD BETTER SHOW UP.

And, I will NOT go into detail.

I agree with Larry. I would go anyway just to make sure. The worst thing that could happen is the VA saying you missed your C&P and back to square one you go.

Just a little FYI, I have a C&P tomorrow 6/11, but yesterday the VARO called me to remind me of the appt. I was very surprised to say the least. I don't know if they do that in your area but I would agree with Larry. The 800 number is just a call center and does'nt always have accurate info.

Good luck, hope this helps

And, you STILL want to show up for your C&P, UNLESS you have something in writing from them cancelling the appointment. In WRITING.

Yes, the Dallas VAMC always calls ahead of my scheduled appointments.

It gets kinda funny, actually, for I have not one but TWO standing weekly appointments, not counting the ones with my PCP, my psych PA and my psychiatrist and whatever other things I may have going on (hearing tests, vision tests, unscheduled lab work, whatever).

Darn 'phone just KEEPS ringing :D !
