Amc Letter Scheduling Exam In Connection With Claim

Rate this question



Received a letter from AMC today saying they asked Philly VAMC to set up exam, I take it this is the C&P exam. But they're also asking me again for non-VA treatment records. I've sent them everything I can get already since 2005...I have to do it again?

It will be a C&P exam, as they need a current one(usually less than one yr old), to rate you. You needn't send anymore evidence if you don't have any. They are giving you a chance to add more "current" evidence that may have been produced while the lengthy claim process has been going on. Good luck!

I agree with Philip, you do not need to send in any evidence you have already sent. If you have more recent treatment other than at a VA facility, then I would make sure that is sent. Otherwise, hang in there, make your scheduled examination at the appointed time and place, The last thing you would want now, would be a denial based on "failure to report" for an exam. Good Luck, it seems you are ready and have done all you can. - Harleyman

This is just a game the AMC plays to show movement on a claim as it has to be remanded to the AMC. To avoid getting their hands slapped foir delaying your claim they send you to a NP C and P exam to get the opinion they already have.

Then they make a decision and send it back to the BVA whewre the Judge will most likely remand it back. To the AMC.

Do you have an IMO? If it is a Muscoluskeletal issue, I would be calling Bash Asap.

This may sound a little harsh but we have several and I mean several long time Hadit Vets who get the AMC C and P exam and BVA claim toss. It keeps their arms loose for the big game which will never be played.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.
