C&p Exam

Question

Hello All,

Just got a copy of my C&P exam. By her report it states that veterans condition is as least liekely as not 50/50 due to his pre-existing condition. Also she plainly states (word for word) that she feels that my disability rating is 30% due to this one condition. If I have done my fuzzy math correctly, 40% + 30% = 60% percent. However since this report was somewhat favorable (she at least states it is adjustment disorder) what are the odds of the rating officer throwing away my C&P report and going with his own direction. Also I have a civilian Pschycologist who is vehement that this disorder is PTSD and NOT Adjustment disorder. Should I send his responce to the C&P report to the Regional Office and will it do any good?

I believe your math on the ratings combined is correct as far as I can tell, although I am not sure what the VA will do about the report. I've never heard of a C&P doc saying it was a certain percentage, but there's a first time for everything I guess. Keep us posted on what you find out, as this could get interesting...

Is there any way you can post the C & P exam? Make sure you cover all personal information; name, SSN, address.

Hey

Thanks for the respond. I should clarify. The is available a word for word diagnosis on MH issues. She wrote this description word for word. And the Manual states that this is a exact criteria for 30%. Sorry for the misunderstanding. However if you google MH and VA together the VA has a definate word description for every diasability level. Mine reads word for word the 30% description. It is going to be attached to my origional disabilities (knees) because my knees put me out of work and due to economic hardship as well as stress due to not working and being unable to contribute to my household. This I think is a positive for some people out there. If your disability puts you out of work and you are not rated high enough to be placed in a TDIU status, You can file on the basis of stress etc... that the hardship places upon you.

Anytime you have valid Dr reports, Dr evaluations that may pertain to the disabilities you are claiming present them asap. Send them certified/registered, so the VARO has to sign for them. ALWAYS keep copies for your records.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
