What's Do I Do

Question

I WENT IN TODAY FOR MY C&P EXAM. LIST ON MY CLAIM WAS A NUMBER OF ITEMS BUT MY C&P EXAM ONLY SEEN ME FOR 2 COMPLAINTS. DOES THIS MEAN THE VA WILL NOT RATE ME FOR THE OTHER COMPLAINTS? I WAS ONLY SEEN FOR GERD AND MENTAL ILLNESS (BIPOLAR, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, AND MANIA).

Hi Lamont - The VA will only rate one Mental Health disorder. So for bi polar and depression and anxiety they all get tied into one. here is a link to help you out

http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=163a15d40f597c978f4517879efb3511&rgn=div8&view=text&node=38:1.0.1.1.5.2.111.73&idno=38

It will take you to a site for rating to see what percentage you fall in.

C&P exams for some claim issues have to be done by specialist in that particular field

such as mental health, audiology, vision, dental.

Also, it could be that the other things you claimed (depending on what they are) may not have been found ion the service treatment records or in medical records within a year of discharge. Unless we have proof of the condition, be it in your service records or some kind of medical documentation showing u developed a condition within a year of discharge, we ordinarily don't schedule an exam. Another reason could be that you will be scheduled for other exams but those were the only docs available for that day. For instance, some VAMCs don't have enough psychiatrists on hand, so the mental exam can be filed way before or after you get the notification for the other physical exams.
