Claim Has Been Rated But Did Not Have C&p Exam


tanya239

Question

Hello im new to this post and have a question about my claim. I am currently 50% for mental disability and have put in a new claim for ptsd, anxiety, and unemployability. It has been a year since i filed and I called the va and they said a decision was made a week ago and was waiting for review. My question is can they rate a ptsd claim without sending you to another C&P examination? If I dont have a c&p exam how can they know what or how to rate my claim. If anyone has any advice or answers I would appreciate it. thanks

Welcome aboard Tanya- they only rate one mental disability-

They could rate say PTSD with depression or Anxiety with agoraphopbia but still the VA will only rate the main mental disability and will not give additional comp for additional diagnoses.

This is why I assume they didnt give you a C & P-but hard to say-

Did they send you a VCAA letter telling you exactly what evidence you need for TDIU?

I think this was a claim for higher rating and not a new claim?

Meaning that your present 50% mental disability has gotten worse due to other factors and has caused unemployability?

Has any doctor stated that your 50% SC has caused you to be unemployable?

Do you get SSDI solely for the mental condition that VA rated at 50%?

well if you do not put in new evedeince then they will use the old stuff...by the way va will only rate one mental condition the highest one....so you can have 20 mental diagnose but they will only give you the highest rating ...

Two ways a rating team can adjudicate your claim,- 1st, is if the evidence is very strong and compelling they may rate your claim without the C&P exam. However, that is very rare- but it does happen. The 2nd, They see no change is your condition based upon the evidence submitted and your rating stays the same. If you are seeking IU, then you will most likely always have an exam if your is considered "plausible"- meaning that the R/O cannot find the smallest of reason to deny the claim up front without exam.
