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!

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
