  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Help, I Will Call Tomorrow

Question

All,

I got a call yesterday that I had an appointment on the 16th for a checkup at the local VA clinic for my high blood pressure and to see my councilor.

Checked MyHealthyVet to verify just know and see that I had been scheduled for a C&P exam for a pending claim today at 10:30 am. 12 hours ago..

No mailing, no phone call, nothing. Was NOT on MyHealthyVet on Friday.

I know everyone here screams, DON'T MISS A C&P EXAM, but kind of hard to go when you don't know you have one.

Now, again on MyHealthyVet, it says "appointment kept" for the C&P exam today, that I did not know about. Hmmmm.

Do they have internal C&P exams when they have all the information, but need a doc to look and make a call? Without seeing the patient??

I will call tomorrow and see what the dealio is..

Thanks,

Hamslice

Let hope, and t might be that you C-file was sent for a review. That also counts as a C&P exam. Do however call and see what really happened.

Ok, made the call. It is called a "opinion clinic". This is where the doc pulls your record and takes a look at it and the patient does not attend. At the local VA clinic today, it showed that I was a no-show for yesterday C&P, however, it showed that I kept the appointment. The person I talked to at the C&P desk today, told me that that is a mistake and to call tomorrow after 10 am, as the doc was gone today, and that the no-show should be gone. Apparently, the doc has two fields he needs to update (fix) when doing a opinion clinic so the patient will not show a no-show. So I will check tomorrow. Should be fixed.

Anyway, I did get a letter today, saying I had a C&P yesterday. Gotta like that.

    • 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...
