There may be a 7 to 10 day delay to process the information. You can go to the medical records section at the VA where you had your exam and fill out the record request form and they will give you a copy. Be advised that some C@P exams take longer to process. They may mail it to you if it is not in the file when you go but you have to request it.

After waiting for 4 weeks, I went to the local VAMC to inquire WHEN I would get copies of the C&P (and other records I requested). I was told that my request was "pending". So, I ask for them on the spot. Lo and behold, I had all 578 pages (including the C&P exams) in less than 15 minutes. It pays to go to the source--in this case the Records Office. Your VAMC patient advocate can also assist you with this, also the VAMC Social Services. Specialty records, such as x-rays, MRI's, CAT scans, ERG's, etc are worth the trip to the Radiology department where they were done. Since an e-mail, letters, and phone calls are so often "lost", or "pending", if you can go there in person, you can save an unneccesary long delay. Keep in mind that C&P's normally take 2-5 weeks to get into the records (from the date of the last C&P exam). After 30-45 days, the C&P's are meshed into your main records. GOOD LUCK

  • How to get your questions answered...


    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.


    • 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.


    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.
