Received C&p Report


Brother Gate

Question

This is report from my c&p NOD for Anxiety Disorder which is already rated 30%. Any ideas?

EMPLOYABILITY: Poor

DSM-IV DIAGNOSIS

Axis 1: 296 Major Depressive Disorder: 300.02 Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Axis 11: no diagnosis

Axis 111: Diabetes, HTN

Axis IV: Marital Discord

Axis V: Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF): 50

MORE THAN ONE MENTAL DISORDER:

The following is accurate for this veteran: More than one disorder was diagnosed.

If more than on Disorder was diagnosed, explain the relationship of symptom of the two or more conditions and their relationship to Veteran's Military Service time. If this can't be done, please state this and explain. He has been diagnosed with anxiety disorder since VN and it is therefor more likely than not related to his military service. In terms of his depression, which appears on this interview to be his primary difficulty it is speclative at best to separate this from his anxiety disorder as well as his military service. The seperation/conceptualization is made more difficult with the history of alcohol and substance abuse.

"more likely than not" is good. They recognize you have disorders related to service.

"speculative" could be a mixed bag. I'm interested in seeing what others say about this too.

Brother Gate,

I see you are currently SC'd at 30 percent for a MH disability.

The statement made of,

"He has been diagnosed with anxiety disorder since VN and it is therefor more likely than not related to his military service.", is not of any relevance as you are already SC'd for MH.

In my opinion I do not see any medical evidence or rationale in this report

that shows support for an increase.

In my opinion it's a piss poor C&P.

This is a poor exam. The doctor's bringing up the alcohol and substance abuse is not going to help you unless he says it is a result of your anxiety and service connected depression. He will not even say the depression is part of your service connected anxiety disorder. You need to hire your own doctor. This gives the VA raters a lot of room to say there is no evidence your depression is SC and that your real problems stem from substance abuse. You don't want that.

Brother Gate,

Another thing to keep in mind is that even though you have

a comorbid diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder,

the VA only compensates under one MH disability.

    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?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • 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.

    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
