    employment 2.jpeg

C&p Test And Written Test?

Question

It has been some time since I have been here, and I am back asking for more advice..

Just the other day I was in having a Comp and Pension test with the Dr.

I was asked question after question, after about 2 hours or so, I was still having a time opening up and sharing the major incident.. About that time the Dr, advised me that I will have to come in an take a long written test, and then we will have to talk again.. This is my second C&P, as I was denied and sent in a Notice of Disagreement,, Any idea why I have to take a written test, and meet with the Dr, again.. Any advise..

And could anyone please expand on the long written test the Dr. is talking about and why?

Many mental health care workers have recorded that i have PTSD and one mentions BiPolar and a personality disorder.. Is this why a written test is scheduled?

Can you upload a copy of your prior C&P exam without your personal information? I would like to review the examiners opinion, which is key to winning your claim. In your rating decision it will almost always tell you what is needed.

My guest is the reason for a written is because the examiner needs a detailed description of your stressor. It could be that he thought your story to be tangible (hard to understand). Therefore, it may be easier to see it written and then discuss it verbally. I highly doubt it to be test of integrity or anything of those means.

well mine was just quite drifferant, the QCT Dr. did not want to talk about my stressers. We went over everything 2-3 times but no stressers. I asked why he wasn't asking about my time in VN, he said he has talked to several daog handlers and he knew the stress load we was under, and knew what my stressers are. I was in his office for about 45 min. BTW, I have not heard from the VA on this, so I guess they are looking at what he wrote. I will ask for a copy as soon as I can. Good luck.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      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. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.
