    employment 2.jpeg

    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

C&p Letter Shady?

Question

I filed for sc for Avascular necrosis of my right hip on 8/30/11. I go to my PO box to pick up my VA script on 9/24/11 and find a C&P letter for two exams, one on 9/20/11 and another on 9/21/11. The first was in Carrolltown Ky. About 50-60 miles away from my house. I live in louisville ky close to the VA medical center. So anyway, I missed both my exams. I had sent the VARO a change of address awhile back and have gotten mail from them at home. I kept my Po box address for my VA meds. I don't want my pain meds sent to my house. The letter from C&P was dated 9/12/11. Has anyone here had an exam scheduled 14 days after you applied for service connection?

Call or visit the C&P clinic that scheduled your exam and ask to be rescheduled. It does not matter where you have to go but ask for the place near you.

Missing a C&P can cause a denial. I cannot express how important it is to get this fixed.

Good Luck

I believe the VA is required to give a minimum of 10 days notice, on C&P exams. In this case, it appears, they didn't. I would request a rescheduling of the exams, based on the short notice and the address error. jmo

I'm going to call the C&P office first thing in the morning. I know that it's grounds for denial. I'm so upset. It's partially my fault. My waterpump is out. I should have gone out to my PO box sooner. I never would have quessed that the RO would move that fast! This rush job is what I think is shady. TheC&P doc that gave my last ( horible) exam, works at the clinic in Carrollton. So it looks like they are sending me back to him.This sucks.

The VA frequently used the same examiner, who generally gives the same result. Even new examiners frequently agree w/previous examiners. Whether it's because they are correct, or not, is another matter. Be sure they have the correct address, this time. I personally don't think it's shady, as it was basically your fault, by having two addresses, of record, and failing to check them in a timely manner. just sayin . . . jmo

    • 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:
