    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

C&p Exam Through "msla"

Question

Hello all,

I am having my c&p for PTSD increase on Saturday through "MSLA", has anyone had any contact with them? What I have researched, they are similar to QTC, but not as "known". I can't find anyone with a good or bad experience with them.

Here is some info on MSLA

http://www.mslaca.com/veterans/

The term is unfamiliar to me......but I think basically like QTC (maybe better....)

I assume that 30% of your rating is for PTSD now. ????

We have the PTSD schedule of Ratings here.

Do you feel you have enough evidence to warrant a higher rating?

Are you employed or has your PTSD hindered your ability to become employed substantially?

Lots of PTSD info here in the PTSD forum.

They are just another contracted C&P examination provider.

Thanks for the the response Berta. Hopefully they are better than qtc.

Yes, 30% PTSD now. The examiner, (through qtc), never had my c-file and mentioned my files were "unavailable" in 2010. I, along with some VA personal feel I should've been awarded 50%, (no surprise they "low balled" me).

My symptoms got worse and I was hospitalized at the Los Angeles VAMC for the last 6 months. I was in the combat trauma program and then had to leave early due to my wife having our 2nd child. There is plenty of evidence in the VAMC files from psychologist, psychiatriat, etc.

I was employed, but since I was hospitalized I was "let go". I was able to maintain my employment for a couple years, but to the credit of my employer which is also a Marine combat veteran of Iraq and knew what I was going through. Calling in, showing up drunk, drinking during lunch, arguing with customers and coworkers, etc. was "swept under the rug".

I am now on 6 psychiatric meds and continue my treatment at the vet center and a private psychologist- through soldiers project.

My worry is that the examiner or VA will grant me them increase, but will set it at 50% rather than 70% or 100%. I also don't know if he/she will have my file. The appointment letter states to bring my medication list and a photo id. I have a letter from my VA psychologist while I was inpatient at VAMC and a few others VA psychiatrist.

Thank you for the help

Since SC for PTSD has already been granted - the only factor relevant to evaluation

of percentage level is current level of disability.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
