  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Letter From Va

Question

Got a letter yesterday about my C&P request. It said my claim is at the rating board and if I want a copy they will have to pull my file and it will delay my claim 6 months. It said for me to call them and let them know what to do. This is so weird. I've request this C&P 3 times. First was sent back saying it was to early, second I got a phone message saying I had sent it to the wrong place, now this response. Only thing I can figure is they have denied my claim and don't want to hear me complain. This has been so nerve racking. Think I should call and tell them to hold off?

Call them back and tell them this is an official medical record and they have no right to deny you a copy. Then call the patient rep and complain also.

This is not an issue you want to handle personally. Get with a Veteran Service Officer of your choice, explain your situation, and let them call the Regional Office and retrieve the info you want.

I'm confused though. If your claim is in the system why do you want a copy of your C&P/ They might rule favorably. I would wait on the award letter, then go from there. If you meddle now you might muck up the works..MHO///

Greetings,

Go to where you get medical treatment and go to medical records release, and ask for a copy of your C&P exam in question under (FOIA) (they might or might not give it to you with all the new rules), however I can tell you from expirence it is much better knowing what the final opinion was from the examiner prior to a RO decison. If you feel the C&P examiner was in error, it gives you time to file a complaint.

I just went through 3 months of this and can tell you don't wait until the RO makes a decision, because then you are fighting an uphill battle and if you find out prior that you had an incompendent C&P examiner all the better grounds to request a new C&P exam. These guys make many mistakes. We who have had bad C&p exams would testify to this.

Just my opinion. I hope it helps. God bless you.

Just go to the hospital records dept and ask for a copy of the C&P. You have a right to it under privacy act and FOI act. The VA is just ignorant and are BSing you about having to go to the RO to get a C&P. I don't know where they come up with this jive. They don't even know their own rules.

Well I don't know what the deal is. But I did get the feeling the examiner was not on the best of terms with the staff. During my exam he was interupted twice. One guy came to the door and give him a list of SSN and told him they were late he needed them. Then a few minutes later a guy called on the phone and chewed him out. I could hear him on the other end. I heard him say there was no excuse for his reports being late. When we went back to the desk they lady at the desk jumped him over another person. Talked to him pretty bad, very unprofessional. I kinda felt sorry for him. I could really tell he had not won a popularity test there. It has worried me, I feel like I wasn't given a fair shake. He spent more time talking about my treatment than my claim. But in the end he said I had nerve and muscle damage and he was going to write it up as SC. That may or may not be true. He also gave me his phone # at the clinic and said he would be willing to talk to my wife about my treatment. He was a really nice guy to me, kinda out there. Needless to say I've been concerned about the out come. The fact is if you don't have a C&P you don't know if it gets changed from the time it leaves the clinic and gets finished at the rating board. I'm convinced I was denied or received a high rating from the examiner and the rating board dodging me. I'm just gonna wait it out. I've already started working on a NOD.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
