Qtc And C&p Exam

Question

I haven't been on here in awhile. Still in the waiting process for my appeals and have been laying low in general. Really been trying to simplify my life. I had my C&P exam back in march. At this appointment I had blood work done and then a couple months later more blood work for the same exam. Well QTC failed to pay for both the lab work done. After 3 months on getting on them they finally paid for the one in May. The thing that is a blow is I thought that they had paid for the March one, but recently had a collection agency call me demanding payment. So basically since March this bill has not been paid and I had no idea about it until this last Friday December 6th, and was informed so by a collection agency. This has negatively impacted my credit score and is unacceptable. I contacted the lawyer I am using for my appeal, and my local senator, who both have to wait for me to get the bill before they can do anything, ugh. So now I wait for it to arrive in the mail until it is resolved. All attempts to contact QTC are a bust. Do any of you have any further advice? This whole thing makes me sick, not because it happened to me, but because I am pretty sure it is a common thing that happens to vets. It is sad and we deserve so much better. :)

The SOB's at the VA did bill my private insurance for a C&P exam!

That is horrible. Luckily for me I have never gone down with out a brutal fight. LOL!

john999, They asked for my private insurance and I refused to give them the info. They try to update it every time I have an appointment but I will never provide them with that information. Thankfully because of this site, I have been able to safe guard myself from many of the heart aches that I have read can happen. I am so thankful for the internet and its limitless amount of resources.

    • 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.
