    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

Desperately Need Copy Of C&p Exam

Question

Hello,

I just completed all three C&P Exams the VA set up for me through QTC. I am seeking an increased PTSD rating, a TBI rating, and TDIU. The first exam I had was with a doctor contracted by QTC who, after about an hour, told me in her EXACT WORDS: "Do not worry about anything. I will be recommending 100% disability for your PTSD and TBI symptoms." Naturally I was glad to hear that but I would feel even more comfortable SEEING her report.

I am also in the process of appealing my SSDI and a positive report/evaluation like that would GREATLY benefit that claim as well. How can I get a copy of her C&P exam?? It was not done at a VA hospital so that makes it harder. I am told that QTC likes to keep a tight lid on their exams.

Any suggestions based on experiences would be much appreciated as time is of the essence in regards to the Social Security Disability claim.

Thank you!

LC

I personally do not feel you will be able to obtain a copy of your

C&P exam/results, done by a QTC examiner, until after a rating decision

has finished adjudication and decisions have been made.

Thanks for your reply. You're probably right.... but I still wonder if there isn't a way around it. I've got to believe my VA case will be moving to the next phase soon since all the C&P exams have been completed and I have submitted every possible shred of evidence I can think of to help my case. Maybe, luck will be on my side and the decision will come down in time so I can get that report sent to me and submitted to Social Security before they rule on my appeal for disability...crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.:unsure:

When you filed for SSD did you include a medical report saying you were totally disabled for at least a year? Did SSD send you for an exam? I think your VA claim is in the bag if the QTC doctor does what she says.

John,

I filed for SSDI on 2/12/2011...I stated that I became disabled in early February 2011. They never sent me for an exam because I was advised to submit the attached "Document of Clarification" (see attached file for form letter I used). According to the SS regulations, nothing says a person has to have been disabled for a year...only that their current condition is LIKELY to be disabling for a period of 12 months or longer. I submitted Doctor's letters, etc. stating that my condition was not likely to improve and that I was not able to maintain gainful employment.

I was disapproved for SSDI on 9/16/2011 and filed my appeal on 9/21/2011.

I welcome any advice or comments you may have...Hadit.com has been a wealth of info- BETTER THAN AN ATTORNEY in my humble opinion!

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
