  • 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.

    • 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.
