    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 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.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
