What kind of claims have you turned in?

If you are claiming, say, "back problems" or a messed up ankle, then look for the C&P exam to be "orthopedic".

If you are claiming, say, PTSD, then you'll be talking with a "shrink".

etc.

by-the-way the term "C&P" refers to the "Compensation & Pension" exams given for each claim you have turned in.......it's just another way of saying "compensation & pension examination" and covers all the bases, for all types of claims.

And, yeah, take the Wife with you.

The C&P examiner is likely to be an RN or PA, at least for "usual claims". An audiologist or a med tech may be the person that gives you an auditory test.

I prefer to take my wife with me, simply because that tends to make a C&P examiner a bit more formal and above board.

I believe a wife's presence in certain kinds of claims, such as ED, or back injury, can help.

The Claims i have are for PTSD, also i have heart stent, and now i understand that with some NEW rules about being on a riverine squadron in the delta, that agent orange is in there also? as i remember the jungle disappearing and we used that area for a free fire zone. I also experience ear problems many times, as it was from many fire fights, ( back then no one used ear plugs that i know of) so i guess a combination of things, but mainly the mental aspect is troubleing me over and over,,thanks for your help i will keep you updated as to my progress.

Just remember, be absolutely honest with the examiner.............and do not try to act like "you're supposed to act when you're out in public" (my momma always admonished me 'bout that), but just lay it all out, don't hold back. Heck, by the time I was through I was crying like a baby..........so, tell 'em the truth and you'll do just fine. DO NOT bring up "stuff" that they DO NOT ask about, try to only talk about things specific to your time in service (they'll ask you about your childhood and about your first wife and your relationship with your daddy and why you killed the neighbor's cat...............):rolleyes:! Don't contribute but don't lie, okay. This is about your PTSD exam, of course.

    • 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.
