You have two C&P exams, but you don't have to show up? That sounds fishy to me. What is purpose of C&P exam if they don't examine you? Does a letter say that or is that word of mouth from some VA person?

John is right- that doesn't make sense.

If they sent every vet a no show needed letter, they could deny every claim right away.

Can you scan and post the letter? (cover personal stuff)

This is odd because someone in Claims research mentioned they were told not to bring anything to their C & P exam but someone else said they always bring stuff with them as the docs often don't even have the SMRs.

My husband had numerous C & P exams whereby he didn't have to attend because he was dead.I succeeded with medical evdence by going against every exam he got posthumously because of course the VA didnt consider all of the medical evidence.

I even sent a local C & P 'doc' (he was actually a PA,) another copy of the records he needed to review as well as two IMOs.

I then had to knock down his C & P results.The BVA agreed that it was too speculative and they threw it out.

Never heard of that one, why have a C&P appt. then, doesn't make sense, I always bring paperwork to my C&P's and the Doctor makes copies and also puts it in my Evaluation what paperwork,

I gave him and what Doctor it was from, you might want to call to verify!!!

I would go anyway and take all papers you can.

LOL....If this don't beat all!...First of all, just like everyone else on this thread, this is a totally different approach that also has me snookered. If they just wanted to evaluate your records, wouldn't it been more feasible to say " instead of you being scheduled, we have scheduled your records to be evaluated". But never the less, I would still be on the phone with my SO asking questions, and talking to the C&P desk at the VAMC as well.

Something isn't culture here. Sounds like there's more to the story than that. Please let us know when you find out anything as this could be a first of something new their not telling us about. i.e....Their new way to streamline C&P exams! Yeah right!

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
