Cp Examiners Take



Does the VA clerks who do the compensation rely heavily on the CP Examiners Opinion. I say this as I got a very good CP Examiner and his take was much better than the other Doctors and more precise. Would the clerks go against the examiners call if it were positive for the veteran? Thanks

you are asking the choir here, best guess it depends on your rater, does he want to grant the claim, is there any thing bad he can use to downplay it? Raters can and will do what they want, all you can do is pray...sometimes it works the weay you want to and sometimes it doesn't, flip a coin that can tell you as much as we can, most of us here think we have winnable claims with good documentation and basis, and some of us are still going head to head 5, 10 - 30 years later......some people take the mosrel the RO throws, sometimes they don't, sometimes the VARO's actually get it right the first time, but right now there are 825,000 claims on appeal and my guess is there are at least that many more that said to hell with it and didn;t file the appeals. I may be wrong, but I doubt it.......

If they don't choose to completely ignore favorable medical opinions or just give it no weight without any reasons or bases in the denial, they will likely order another C&P or medical opinion to shoot down the favorable opinion. Make sure the Dr's comments are detailed. If not ask the Dr to be more precise.

    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.
    • 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?”
