  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I know I asked this question earlier however I cannot locate the previous post. I retired from the military in 2010 and received a 100% rating in Feb 2011, I had my first VA appt on June 13 and my doctor told me she will see me in 1 year. I have two claims that are rated at 50% (more claims make up 100%) each and they both state that VA will schedule me for another exam to re-evaluate my condition. My question is when should I expect this exam? or how soon do you think VA will schedule it? Thanks

Could be 3 years, 5 years, maybe never. It's hard to say. I think that somewhere they are supposed to write down when they expect you should receive future exams, and then there is a flag on your file that alerts them when it is time to schedule your exams. Probably not any time real soon though

The VA may or may not schedule a C&P in a year or so. It may be longer, at the VA's convenience. Anyway, given the two 50%ers, either or both together or separately may be the subject of the C&P's. You should get a letter, or possibly a phone call ahead of the C&P date(s).

Generally, C&P's are scheduled by the VA in the hopes of reducing a rating, although it's also possible to increase the ratings as a result of the C&P's.

You will likely want to get a copy of the results from the VA to find out if you need to apply for an increased rating.

In theory, the VA can increase the rating by administrative action as a result of a C&P, but don't bet on it.

I was able to get the local VA Clinic to print out the last one I was given. (last year, printed results earlier this year.)

I had to laugh, as a Nehmer claim review used evidence from medical records and doctors (treating board certified specialists) instead of the examiners "essential" HBP opinion.

As a result HBP was also service connected, as were various other conditions previously denied. The conditions SC'd are medically related to A/O presumptive conditions, even though the VA likes to say that they are not. The medical records and statements by the specialists prevailed. Knowing that I had legal representation likely helped, as the SOC from the review was far more thorough than any previous ones that were related to denials.

I had knee surgery in 08 and rated 30%. Then I was given an appointment date for 1 year later. I went to the appointment and the Dr check my knee out and ask if I were having any problems with it. I told him that I was and he checked my ROM and then I left. A couple months later I received a letter stating I was increased to 60%. I never even asked for it. Took me by total surprise. So it does happen sometimes. I've also heard if your over 55 yrs. old their not suppose to bother you with future exams. But I been taking that with a grain of salt.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
