I just called the 800# to request them to send me a copy. They start this up as a claim-it took about 2-3 months before I got my copy. The other thing you can do is write the VA a letter requesting a copy as well. Everyone should have a copy of there c-file if they have a lot records to see what they have, mine showed a lot of internal notes as well.

Great question and great answer!

Guess it's time to get my C-file.......I've kinda waited long enough! Just glad I didn't really need it, as the VA has done me right, as of late! But tomorrow may be a different day with the VA!

Getting a copy of a C file can be Very enlightening-it sure was for me.

ALL the stuff they claimed did not exist or was missing -was right in it!!!! It is now new and material evidence.

All their snide remarks about me was in there too! Ha Ha.

Their remarks in one case supported a medical error they had made and they wrote negative stuff about me in the internal incident report.What did I have to do with their medical error? Nothing.

However their entries gave me even more evidence to prove I had confronted VA Pharmacy about it and got a ridiculous story from Pharmacy. That situation has been resolved.

I feel it is not always good idea to make appointment to review a C file-

You will be looking probably at quite a big stack of records within the stressful R0 climate.A friend of mine went all the way to Buffalo to do that-

and came home wishing he had more time because he didn't get even close to finding what he needed in it.

VA medical Records are separate from the C file.They require separate request for copies of them.

  • 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.
