Negative C&p Exam - What Next?


JC1948

Question

My C&P examiner stated on her report that she did not find objective evidence to support a diagnosis of claimed illness. Will this report cause my claim to be denied even though my neurologist reports I have the disease?

The VAMC examiner has more wt than any DR. NP are known to deny claims right and left and even though you may have valid information in the form of treatment records/medication/their exam results/IMO's and IME's the VARO uses the C&P exam "opinions" to grant or deny the claim. The largest part of veteran population, and especially those of us here have been fighting these flawed exams for years. Sorry to be the bearer of this news.

Roll up your sleeves and be prepared for the fight of your life!

Would I be able to request a second C&P before being denied or do I have to wait for the denial?

What you need to do is get a second opinion that is favorable as soon as possible and submit it objecting to your C&P. Make sure the Doc sees the C&P so they can shred it

Get an IMO or IME that will rebutt the findings of the C&P exam point by point. Even if you get another C&P exam it might be worse. Who pays for C&P exams? The VA pays for these exams. They work for the VA. You need a doctor who is working for you, and getting paycheck from you. Nobody at the VA is your friend.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

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

    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
