Any Guess On This

Question

.
I would like to know when I might expect a C&P exam for any or all of these. I would have thought C&P info would be needed evidence and be done at 'Gathering Evidence' stage.

Review of Evidence is explained as all evidence required has been provided (or words to that effect).

Current Status; REVIEW OF EVIDENCE, (Been stuck at this phase for 4 months.)

FDC Claim Began; 03/28/2013

Projected finish; 01/13/2014 to 07/19/2014

Increase for current 10% Sinusitus

PTSD Diagnosed by VA Phsyciatrist

Hearing Loss

Tinitus

Your guess is as good as anyone else, but at least a VA shrink has said you have PTSD. Now you need to find a doctor who will opine on the severity of your PTSD if the VA low balls you. All these Ebenefits dates are just wild guesses. Are you getting treatment for PTSD at the VA now?

Yes I am..I don't care for it though. It makes me feel much worse to puke up all that crap and remember it.

The file says 'Severe PTSD' on my annual Physical.

Anyone know why the C&P has not been done? Should it have been?

No one can reply to this issue. Each claim is different worked by different Regional Offices.

Good luck and I hope it is sooner than later.

Oh well..thank you anyway.

Like everyone else I am getting antsy and more worried as time goes by. I guess I should look at it as at least they didn't turn me down right away which may be a good sign.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
