C&p Exam Needed For Each And Every Claim?


My question: Is a C&P exam required for each and every claim? as in if VA Doc's diagnose you with Major Depression (gaf 45-50) due to secondary from major pain from original service conected injuries are they going to require a C&P exam or just go by VA doc's diagnose? Also daily headaches/migarines which is diagnosed (Cervionic Headaches/migraines) by VA Doc's being a direct result from original service conected cervical triple fusion or will they just read the notes from VA doc's? Also renel disease which is diagnosed from blood test?

basically do they just use reports and such on some of the claims or do you have a C&P exam for each and every one?

Further does anyone know what this might mean (C&P Final Report)? i had sent in additional medical reports (evidence) and on my ebenefits site it states received VA Form 21-4138 on Jan 7th and on the same day it says (C&P Final Report) and i have not had any exams for my new claims???

TLaff - they usually require a C&P on each claimed disability/illness/disease. They may waive it, on occasion, if you have extensive medical records, showing your disease/condition.

I was awarded 30% sc for ddd/ibs without a c&p. They used range of motion tests that dr. bash did for my imo/ime.

For mental health claim issues the medical evidence must come from

a mental health provider.

IMO - most claims for depression will need a C&P or DBQ from a

mental health provider.

Just as stated above it depends on the amount of information and sometimes it just depends on who's handling your claim and what type of mood they're in.

As always stay in treatment for you mental health issues as up to date records could add to your %.

Good Luck

God Bless

    • 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.
