  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

C&p Examiner Notes Seem Bad

Question

I am currentley rated at 100% PTSD 20 % Right Shoulder. I requested P&T after reading the eaminers notes I am concerend should I be ?

Veteran appears stabilized on a consistent medication regimen, and his
participation in treatment as proven to be beneficial overall.
Self-report test scores included BAI = 34, BDI-II = 40, and PCLM = 73.
These scores reflect the occurrence of moderate anxiety, severe depressive
symptoms, and noteworthy PTSD symptomatology. However, veteran's
presentation during the evaluation and the description he provided of
his
day-to-day activities indicated functioning not consistent with the
above-mentioned level of symptoms. Careful scrutiny of this discrepancy
is recommended as a result.

So if I even try to be productive around the house and help out when I can I feel like I will be punshished

"Careful scrutiny of this discrepancy is recommended as a result."

That doesn't sound good. But then again, he also said treatment has been beneficial. If treatment is beneficial, wouldn't you be able to function better sometimes, even though you have extreme symptoms at other times?

Sounds like something could be up. You don't state your age or how long you've been 100%? I suspect they may try to reduce you, somewhere down the line, and may be setting the stage for that or the examiner is actually stating he/she thinks you're embellishing your problems. Usually an examiner just goes w/what the previous examiner says. jmo

Do you receive weekly or monthly treatment for PTSD? Whatever the case, I would be very up front with the doctor(s) who see you regularly and tell them what this recent C&P examiner wrote. Ask them if based on them if they agree/disagree with these opinions. Ask them to write a short statement that in THEIR opinion, more accurately reflects your symptoms & conditions. If there is a particular symptom you want in their statement, ask them if they would include it. Do it on a VA "Statement in Support of Claim" Form and ensure it is filed asap...Providing you agree with it of course. If you don't agree, perhaps you and your doc can "fine-tune" it to a useful statement.

You may have had a "good day" when the C&P evaluation was done but it might not be an accurate picture of how things are really going for you. I hope this helps and that you receive your just benefits but in the meantime...expect the best but prepare for the worst!

Start looking for an IME doctor. What the VA doctor said about you is not good. I don't know if it will affect your rating. I would start seeing a private doctor and get some records ready to fight what this VA clown has said. A VA C&P exam doctor once said I was a psychopathic personality during an exam. It did not affect my rating. The VA just continued it so I guess it did affect my rating since I was asking for an increase. I have had exam doctors say I was actually faking it because I had a B.A. in Psychology, so you are not alone with this crap. I kept my rating. I was only rated 30% and they were trying to take that away from me.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
