Another C & P Exam?

Question

I just got off the phone with the rep at the VA who stated that there was a letter sent out for me..QTC scheduled me for another 2 C&P exams to be done in Columbus, Ga. I just did two in September. I filed for IU increase but never heard of having to do this again. Any suggestions as to why this is happening?

The fear is unless we are 100% permanent there will always be C&P exams, cause they want to dig up a reason to lower are %s or $s. Good luck and keep us posted.

Yes, this does happen.

Just ALWAYS be sure to attend any and all C&P's that have been scheduled.

actually, this has become the norm with many claims. When they are being reviewed and the rater/adjudicator needs further explanation or additional tests, they will submit the veteran for additional C/P exams. Think of this as a positive action because someone is working your claim.

The worst thing that you can do is cancel a c/p exam and reschedule it. Almost always, if the veteran fails to show for a c/p exam, the claim is denied and they move on to the next one.

So, my suggestion is when you receive an appointment for a C/P exam, be there and be there at least an hour earlier...

IMHO...I can understand having people take C&P exams in order to re-evaluate their current condition for improvement, but...If those in charge are serious about eliminating the backlog, wouldn't it be smart to focus the time and money on that?? Put a 1-2 year moratorium (sorry if misspelled) on wasting assets in this way and focus on things that HELP veterans. Perhaps I am biased but it seems like the workload is not being prioritized...Hey, it's not a perfect world but those are just some thoughts!

    • 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.
