Scheduled For C And P


Had a Voice Message Yesterday informing me of an upcoming Appointment at the Winston Salem VA outpateint clinic or June 24 Tursday at 1:00pm. I wasnt;'t sure if I had set one up. I have yet to receive the usual letter explaining the appt. I was told to bring in social security numbers for my wife and children as well as marriage certificate and annual household earrnings and health insurance information.

I called this morning and apparently i have 2 C and P's for tomorrow. they just told me on tuesday....very frustrating. I am total of 60% 50 for PTSD and 10 for tinnitue. I currneyl have a claim for orthopedic as well as to up my PTSD. has anybody ever experienced this, or had the VA ask for SSN numbers for all fmaily members, sicne they already have them as well as health insurance information and total household income?

thanks matt

It may be a means test appointment where you show them your paperwork. The VA does this from time to time.

They cant drop you from gp 1.

The can do a means test because they still bill insurance companies.

Means testing is separate from C and P exams. I would call them and clarify what the appt is for.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
