I Got A Copy Of My C&p Exam's Today Please Tell Me What You Think. "i,m Now Certified Krazy"


F4crewchief

Question

Ok here we go. I think the Doc got it right. It says I have a GAF of 51

Dx Bipolar disorder, mixed type. AXIS 1, comments if any? it is at least as likely as not secondary to this gentleman's military service in the airforce. Previously, in the air force the veteran was dx with a chronic adjustment disorder and mixed personality disorder , and I do in fact, believe that the present bipolar disorder is a maturation of that condition originally diagnosed in the military.

dx 2: alcohol abuse in remission axis 1

dx 3:cocaine abuse in remission axis 1

Occupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity

Differentiation of symptoms a. does the veteran have more than one mental disorder diagnosed?(yes)

Comments: he does have voth the bipolar disorder , which is of mixed type at this point, as will as substance abuse problems, which most likely ar secondary to his bipolar symtomatology.

Symptoms for va rating purposes, check all symptoms that apply to the vetern's dx.

checked are:

depressed mood at times

Anxiety

suspiciousness

chronic sleep impairment

mild memory loss

Impaired judgment

flattened affect

difficulty in establishing relationships

disturbances of motivation and mood

difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships

suicidal ideation

impaired impulse controlsuch as unprovoked irritability with periods of violence

persistent danger of hurting self or others

neglect of personal apperance and hygiene.

Competency: is the veteran capable of managing his or her financial affairs? checked (yes)

Prognosis: at the present time, would appear to be guarded.

Section 11: clinical findings:

1. evidence review if any records (evidence) were reviewed , please list here: the c-file was carefully reviewed. In fact , there were numerous referencs to the fact that the veteran has some physical health problems, particulary with his hearing, as well as, in fact, ther is a referince in the c-file to his having been consulted with a psychiatrist in the military , and was found to have a chronic adjustment disorder, as well as a mixed personaliy disorder. these were when he could not function on the flight line and requested that he be removed from that particular activity because of the stress. I do , in fact believe that these conditions diagnosed in the military have now matured into the bipolar disorder, which in fact, is present at this time.

There's more here and there med history ect... so please tell me what you think about what rating I can expect and the fight ahead and time line.all my c&p are done, the only other claim i had was for hearing (no findings, no hearing loss found ect.) and how do I claim hardship (homeless currently) .

Thanks for you time everyone and look foward to all coments.

Your C&P sounds like an IMO I got some years ago. I got a rating of 70% but was denied TDIU for some dumb reason since I was already on SSD for the same SC condition. I think you could get 70-100 percent if you are not working. I am guessing so don't take my opinion to the bank.

    • A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective
      A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective

      This person is going to judge you. It’s their job, and that is why you are there. To be adjudicated fairly. How would you like to be remembered? A scuzzy stereotypical veteran? Or a troubled one who is doing the best they can?

      Do not talk about alcohol or drug-related issues. You are not there to be assessed for those problems. You are there to be evaluated for your psychiatric functioning as today relates to your service history. If the examiner asks about alcohol or drugs, politely remind them that you are not there for those issues if you’ve ever had them, but for how impaired you are in your daily functioning. It’s best to avoid even talking about them. Got a VA horror story? I can tell you a worse one. Don’t waste your time with how badly you believe you’ve been mistreated. The examiner only has a short time to figure out how impaired you are, and they need the facts, concise sentences, and not rambling rants that lead nowhere.

    • VA Math, Confusing, Right? Calculate Your Final Rating Percentage!
      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic 

      “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service-connected and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating.

    • Post in I need some help, please
      If you are looking for help taking care of him something like a home health aide that comes in during the week and helps with what he needs help with. For this I would contact your local VA hospital and ask to speak to the Social Worker, explain your situation, ask for help and how to proceed.

      If you are looking for additional compensation in the form of Special Monthly Compensation check out this video from CCK Law I think it will give you a good idea what it is and how to go about applying for it.

      For example there is a Special Monthly Compensation Rate for TBI try reading this article from The Veterans Law Blog on SMC T It is a subscription site but it allows you to view 3 articles for free a month.

      Special Monthly Compensation (SMC)

      I hope this helps.

  • 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.
