Murph, I'm just gonna mention this as a "hypothetical" possibility:

You do know that almost ALL the C&P's performed by the VA are actually carried out by "outside contractors"? I'd say a good 90% of all the C&P's. Heck, my wife did some last year. And, they get paid per exam regimen performed. So, hypothetically speaking, if they did NOT perform a certain procedure does NOT necessarily mean that they did NOT get paid for said procedure.

hypothetically speaking, of course............:rolleyes:

You're not listening to me:

Most ALL C&P exams are performed by CONTRACT examiners. Just because they use the existing VA facilities does not mean that the individual examiners are EMPLOYEES of the VA. It's kinda like having your house painted: It's YOUR house, but the painters are NOT your employees, they are contractors.

And, as contractors, they are paid for what they BILL their client.

And, if you doubt me, ask around.

    • 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.
