    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

C&p Exam

Question

Good Morning,

Question,

I am currently on terminal/ Retirement leave from 14 July - 31 Oct 2010, I have completed all C&P exams. I recently received additional records that will be crucial in the rating board descision, I sent these records to my VA rep however when I contacted the 800# they told me my C&P exam records were at the regional office waiting to be sent to the board after my actual retirement date and the records I sent to my VA rep was not there. I was also told my VA rep did not send my records and that I needed to fax them straight to the regional office before my retirement date.

1. Where do I send my additional records?

2. Now that my exam is complete, when will I recieve my letter stating what percent disability I am entitled too?

3. I wear a Tens Unit and a Back Brace which was prescribed by a Pain Management doctor however it is not stated in my records. I was told by my VA rep to print a copy of my Tri-care claim where Tri-care Paid for the items and they would be included/ show evidence in my claims process. Is this correct?

4. I had a sleep study test and was diagonosed with Sleep Apnea, I have the CPAP machine, upon reading the diagnoses it also stated that I showed evidence of Norcolepsy and Restless Leg Syndrome. Can I be compensated for the two/ Latter?

Thanks for the Help,

GOD Speed and Keep Up the Fire...

"I wear a Tens Unit and a Back Brace which was prescribed by a Pain Management doctor however it is not stated in my records.

That was a good idea the rep had.But is the cause of the need for these presciptions well docmented in your SMRS?

" I had a sleep study test and was diagonosed with Sleep Apnea, I have the CPAP machine, upon reading the diagnoses it also stated that I showed evidence of Norcolepsy and Restless Leg Syndrome. Can I be compensated for the two/ Latter? "

Is there any nexus or documentation in your SMRS of sleep apnea or any sleep problems at all?

"they told me my C&P exam records were at the regional office waiting to be sent to the board after my actual retirement date and the records I sent to my VA rep was not there."

By board do you mean a MEB or a PEB?

" I was also told my VA rep did not send my records and that I needed to fax them straight to the regional office before my retirement date." ???

It sounds to me as though both the VARO and the Mil board need the C & P results.

Have you requested a copy of the results from the VAMC where those exams took place?

"Now that my exam is complete, when will I recieve my letter stating what percent disability I am entitled too?"

I hope others chime in here-

I am assuming they will depend on the MEB or PEB findings to rate yo but I might have gotten that part of the post all wrong.

In any event-all disabilities need an inservice nexus to be service connected.The back problem-I assume this is due to an inservice event and well documented in your SMRs?

as well as the sleep apnea?

Or has the PEB or MEB made any medical decision yet on these 2 disabilities?

    • 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...
