Requesting A New C&p


hmcquade

Question

Is it possible to request a new C&P? I had one on 4/25/14, it lasted less than 1/2 hour and my claim for PAD secondary to my SC DMII was denied based on what the C&P Dr. wrote even though I had 2 Drs. who are treating me stated it was connected.

Has anyone very tried to get a new C&P, if so how do you do it and with whom?

Thanks,

Hugh

I have had C&Ps that were less than 10 minutes, so that is not unusual. The two DRs that diagnosed you, are they thru the VA. Only VA docs typically can state whether a condition is Service Connected or not. As long as there is hard evidence in front of the Examiner, you will always win in the end.

I'm sorry to hear the rushed C&P news. As far as requesting a new C&P due to not liking the outcome there are a few things you can do. Based on the denial, you can file an NOD (notice of disagreement and state in your opnion what you are seeking, but an appeal (gonna take a long time), De Novo review (which is another examiner in the VA RO look at your claim independently), Reconsideration (not sure if this is the same as de Novo review) or get IMO/IME that is from a doctors others have been successful with (might not have to be, just want your stuff to go through. As others may have stated, as long as the evidence is in your records then it should be ok. They need the dots connected for them. Sometimes they can do it, other times they need someone else to do it for them.

I'm sorry if I gave any incorrect information. I'm just trying to chime in with my 2 cents worth. I wish you good luck.

I spoke with my DAV SO, we are going for a reconsideration. I am getting more IMO's.

Thanks,

My DAV SO told me to get statements from my family Dr. and my endocrinologist stating it was as least as likely than not that my PAD was secondary to my DMII. Well unfortunately what was need was a fully developed IMO from both Drs., I was not told that, so the C&P Dr. stated that there was not any medical evidence to support a Nexus, and the RO denied the claim.
