Question

Does this sound like standard practice.

Filed my initial claim in August 2010 (Retired AD 1 Aug 10). Contacted by VA in November of upcoming C&P exams in Dec10 and Jan11. Completed all C&p and was told at 6 Jan( General Medical) exam that several of the conditions that VARO requested exams for were not conducted at that VAMC. I was told by examiner that they will include that in C&P notes and the VARO will likely schedule that exam with another VAMC or QTC. I have copy of C&P and it does state that. Now here I am a month later and C&P results have still not been sent to the VARO.

Called 1-800 (Waste of Time) and was told that the VAMC has 60 or in some cases up to 90 days to submit C&P results to VARO and that time line starts from the LAST exam that was scheduled. My last exam was the end of January, nearly a month after the VAMC determined some of the disabilities could not be examined there. Now I know that this is a slow process but if VARO sent an exam request to the wrong VAMC shouldnt they know that within less than 4 FREAKIN MONTHS. Just doing normal math i'm gonna say following their current timeline it 4 months to tell them i still need an exam plus at least a month to get another C&P scheduled then add another 2 months to send results back to VAMC =7 month delay for a simple scheduling error.

Anybody have any suggestions on what to do here?

Carlie,

Already made the VARO aware, made my VSO aware. VAMC are the ones who caught it. All of them have said that the VARO will decide what to do when they eventually receive the C&P results. Seems insane that this will probably take months to rectify

People with peripheral vestibular disorders shouldn't be put on a merry go round...haha. Its pretty annoying. I mean its, a simple enough problem to fix, right? My VSO says they may defer it and rate everything else but more than likely it will just hold up the whole enchilada. Very comforting

  • 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.
