No Cp Exam Needed?


usmc0599

Question

Good evening all,

Im going to keep this short and brief. I filed multiple claims with the VA a few months ago and have received my CP exam dates for all, except for one.

They haven't contact me about a claim for depression I filed at the same time. I called the 1800 number and the operator informed me that they don't always schedule CP exams.

I think its a little strange, since I'm claiming depression as secondary to multiple chronic illnesses, that they wouldn't schedule for me to see a doctor. Is this normal?

Im currently SC'ed for pes cavus (30% bilateral) which was made worst after three surgeries, 2 scars (10% each), cervical arthritis(10%), right extremities pain (10%) tension headaches (0%) and chronic sinus infections (0%) totaling 60%

thank you in advance.

For your Tension headaches you may want your VSO to make sure they rate them under DC8100, some times they try and use the same rating code for chronic sinus and you will never go over 0%. in this you need to point out that this code is closer to your tension headaches in is form of the illness and treatment type.

No the VA does not have to give you a C&P exam.

Are you receiving care from the VA for the depression? And maybe they are waiting to see how the other things turn out so already planning to defer the depression rating.

yes, I'am being seen by the VA for depression.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • 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
