      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.

      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’.


      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.


      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?


      I 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.

C&p Exams Completed

Question

Hello All,

I had three (3) C&P exams on June 30th and after my exams were complete the doctor told me I should receive a letter showing the results in a couple weeks. Let's see; June 30th to August 17th. That's about 48 days I think. That's a couple of weeks, isn't it?

I was just wondering if anyone could give me a close picture on how long it takes to get the results back from the VA. I was told that one of my claims was sent to the review board but they wouldn't tell me which one it was. I asked my VSO and he said to just sit back and wait. Is that the best advice? Wait?????

Who did the C&P exams? If the VA did them you might get copies from the VAMC where the exams were done. You go to Release of Medical Records. If QTC did them you have to get them from the VARO. I would call or visit and push them. The VSO does not care since it is not his claim. He is too busy eating lunch to care or on break. The only good VSO is our own Larry. We need to clone him.

John,

I had my exams done at a VAMC. I was browsing thru one of my VET magazines last night and it said in an article that it normally takes 140 + days, or longer, to receive anything back from the VA with the backlog they have.

Guess I'll just continue to wait.

Sgt,

Ditto on John's post.

I would go to the ROI office at your VAMC and get a copy of each C&P exam.

They should be available within about 1 week after the exam's take place,

since they were done at a VAMC.

The doctor has absolutely no idea or anything at all related to how long or when a Rating Decision

will be promulgated.

My guess is you might receive a Rating Decision somewhere between 3 - 12 months after your C&P's.

Yes, at this point the VSO is correct, except for getting copies of the C&P's, it's a waiting game for you now.

My only other suggestion at this point is for you to NOT continue to submit any additional evidence

or claims at this time - let this get completed first or you will go into a claims tornado.

JMHO

Carlie,

Thank you for your information and suggestions. I'll just sit back and let the system do its work and hope that it comes sooner than later. One of my exams was for IHD so I know it will be a while before I hear anything on that.
