Difference Between A C&p And A Review


MikeS

Question

Hi all:

What is the difference between a C&P and a review?

I have a claim for housebound.

I received a letter from the VARO that they requested a C&P, and that I should be getting an appointment in the mail from my local VAMC.

That was a month and a half ago.

Today, the VA Doc who refills my ptsd meds told me that another doctor at the VAMC reviewed my records.

I asked her what that meant.

She said she did not know.

I asked her if I was scheduled for a C&P.

She said no.

Any ideas as to why a review was done instead of a C&P?

Thanks,

Mike S.

I have had exam requests that the C&P department decieded could be answered with a review because of a recent exam that covered the same information. I don't necessarilly think this is a negative thing - my cervical spine SC and rating was awarded on reviews. If you have had current medical appointments and exams that discussed your being housebound I wouldn't get in a twist about it.

If you arn't in the habit of getting copies of your exam/exam notes so that you know what is in the record you might want to get them so you know what the reviewer was/is looking at.

Best regards,
