Can Information Be Added After The C&p Exam?

Question

I forgot to tell the doctor some of my side effects while I was having my exam last week. IS there a form or addendum I can send in to be considered with the exam.

I was a bit rattled when I went in as well as the fact that I didn't have my side effects written down to present.

Considering one of my side effects is short term memory loss is one of the main one's, you would think I would have made a list to take with me.

Thanks! Juan

Juan,

You can add that to your records; I'd use the form 21-4138.

But- I've been told by a VARO that submitting additional evidence starts the claim clock over, so others may have better advice on how to proceed.

I've sent in a bunch of stuff after my C&P. Not sure if the clock starts over or not, but I'm going to see my VSO tomorrow so I'll ask him. I don't think that it does as long as your claim is still in the development phase.

You can add information at anytime. As long as the information do not constitute a new claim there is no reason for your claim to be delayed.

I was told the other day from a friend who used to work at the DAV doing claims. He would have done ours if he was still there.

He said that whenever you add new information always use form 21-4138.

The main thing that you have to remember is:

AMENDMENT AMENDMENT AMENDMENT

If this is not on the form, it will basically sent it back into the pile. If you have THIS IS AN AMENDMENT on it- it will not slow it down.

Any input on this or has anyone heard this?

Ditto on Sharon's post here.

I underlined the part above.

    • 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.
