Question

My case was put into CVET fast track status by my rep on Monday due to a 4 month delay in processing which my rep said the regional office admitted was their error. I just got a call saying they wanted a 2nd C&P, the first was in February and resulted in a quick denial. I got a very good IMO by a former VA examiner and have additional proof of current disability from a state agency (the second state agency to recognize it).

I know I have to agree to this or the case will be dismissed, but I am wary of another exam since the first was in my opinion very unprofessional and not thorough. I would like to just go in and emphasize the two findings of current disability and the IMO report stating they believe it is service connected/aggravated. And of course cooperate with the examiner. This does however seem unnecessary since I thought the IMO was supposed to be the counterweight to the first exam, I do not understand the need for a 2nd C&P.

The VA seems to love making you drive back and forth for C&P's. I've had to go to one for PTSD, and then 3-4 months later go back out for one. Even the examiner seemed surprised they ordered me for another one. As for them being unprofessional, that's nothing new. C&P examiners can be total jerks sometimes, and sometimes they can be the best people for your claim. It all is a gamble, hopefully you get the good one. I've had both, one that told me my job in Iraq, (Convoy Security and Route Security) "didn't seem to be that stressful" I just about snapped and walked out. You should get some good replies on here, I wish you the best of luck!

Slang,

You know from military days there's some things you just have to do; please don't fight it.

Bring copies of that additional evidence with you to give to C&P doc- they've never had the evidence I submitted.

Try to keep a positive attitude- it sounds like you've got some good material and just have to comply with their requirements. :smile:

Update

I went to the exam Saturday Jan 8. The examiner said he was convinced, I had enough evidence, he would act as my advocate and concur with the IMO. I am wondering now if I didn't do enough to accurately make the case for my current condition, though I did say the VA hospital psyches here wanted to send me to the White City facility because they were concerned about me being a suicide risk and that I am on VA prescribed Ativan for anxiety and depression. I called this morning, Monday, and learned the report has already been filed. Just concerned about the GAF score which is apparently how the rating is determined.

slang,

Sometimes examiner's lie - because you are face to face with them.

Sometimes they are truthful to the claimant.

If your C&P was done at a VAMC, you can go to ROI there and get a copy.

The GAF score is only one factor of many, that is used to determine a percentage.

You can use GAF in the search feature here to find out more.

It is explained in the following topic link.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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.
