C&p Results Back Confused

Question

Hello, just recieved c&p results for PTSD. Doctor report starts with diagnosis of PTSD(icd code:308.1) the examiner axis 1 says PTSD related to veterans fear of hostile or terrorist activity. It also states, GAD and major depression. My GAF score is 55. Axis IV problems with primary support and social environment. Axis V depression high from past relationships, medical problems PTSD started while deployed and have continued without remission.

It goes on under functional impact: Does the veteran have a TBI? she marked no, what does this mean?Under occupational and social impairment: she has marked off Ocupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity

Now here is the kicker, she put under competency, her opinion: veterans PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression are as likely not related to fear of hostile terrorist activity/combat and s/c medical disorder.

What does all this mean?

Thanks,

Joker

Hi There,

Did you mean "as likely as not?" In your post, you've noted "as likely not," so I'm wondering if it's just a typo? "As likely as not" gives the information you'd want to see. TBI is related to traumatic brain injury. I hope this helps some for what you are asking.

It means in this providers opinion - You have not had a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Under occupational and social impairment: she has marked off Ocupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity

This relates to a degree of impairment of your PTSD/GAD, that helps determine an evaluation percentage

that the VA decision maker will figure out - per the medical evidence and the criteria i 38 CFR Part 4 - Schedule Of Ratings.

Now here is the kicker, she put under competency, her opinion: veterans PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression are as likely not related to fear of hostile terrorist activity/combat and s/c medical disorder.

What does all this mean?

This last one means she believes your mental health disabilities are related to active duty.

With what you have posted there is no opinion provided on the issue of competency.

Hello, thanks for the quick reponse. Here is what the statement says exactly

Opionion: Veterans PTSD, anxiety and depression are as likely as not related to fear of hostile activity/combat/ and s/c medical disorders. The veteran is employable by mental health standards alone. SMR indicates problems with insomnia as well as stress" before and after deployment. Insomnia is related to the above dx. as well as sleep apnea, improved with cpap.

The above statement I beleive she is refering to because I have both physical (Lumbar Strain 20%) and mental problems. The mental portion she states" Overlapping and innterrelated."she goes on and says,"They are all service connected due to combat and or medical s/c disorders. (pain in lower back which has lead to inability to leave house and work)

My claim is for PTSD and sleep apnea secondary.

Thanks,

Joker

Are you able to work? Are you working. The statement was confusing to me but I got out of it the examiner thought that you are employable.

    • 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.
