Comp-psy Appointment

Rate this question



I got my Comp&Pen appointment notice in the mail today. My appointment is June 29th for increase for Bipolar. I'm currently at 50%.

The notice states

"Due to the limited time given to complete your claim, we are requesting that you keep the above appointment."

Is this just normal VA verbage or are they actually in a time limit to complete my claim?

they are basically saying if YOU miss the appt it will really really really delay the processing of your claim and it will be YOUR fault they like guilt trips

I see one of two things that this means. (1) The rater has been given a time limit in which to complete your claim so they can mark your claim as completed within some time limit they were given. (2) The C&P schedule is so backed up, if you decided to reschedule the C&P appointment, it would be some time before you could get in again and therefore it would delay the rating of your claim in perportion to how long you would have to wait for a new appointment.

If you can in no way make this appointment, I would urge you to find a way to make it. With the present climate for raters to clear claims quicker, It would be in your best interest to not reschedule for another date.

Carla, i talked to my DAV rep today and he said they have a mid July completion on my claim.

Just thought you might want to hear this since you stated they have no time limit.

I already sent this post once and somehow and it didn't post for some reason.

I found out today there is a time limit for adjudication of my claim. Sometime in July it's supposed to be rated and finalized.

    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. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    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.
