    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

Missed C/p Exam


Question

ok I put in a claim last august. Then I get a letter 3 weeks ago stating I needed to submit additional information and complete a release of records form. My ebenefits account was updated to gathering evidence. It was pretty dumb on my part to think that I wouldn't have any c/p exam scheduled until I sent the additional information. So I get this letter dated 5/20 stating i had a c/p exam for friday, 5/23. When I got the letter, which I had recieved many of them recently to remind me of my normal appointements, i put it aside thinking it was just for my normal appointments. Needless to say, I missed my first c/p exam that friday but made it to my second c/p exam which was last friday, 5/30. Now, i've got mental health related claim in and im' not up to par up there as they say, so i'm having trouble managing my life. Messed up mind, equals messed up everything else, so how can they be surprised when i miss a c/p exam, with 2 days notice no less? Are they going to throw out my claim?

Not necessarily. Call the 800 number and ask for a new exam. Just tell them you didn't get the letter. I've missed a few C&Ps. They usually give you a second chance. You have to make that one though. Assuming you get the letter. Thats how they have been with me. Do it Monday, assuming they are answering the phone. You can call after hours and leave a message too. They always got back to me. Good luck!

Thanks DAV_Marine72. I will call the number on the letter tomorrow and tell them I didn't get the letter in the mail. I got really bummed out today thinking I screwed myself cause you hear all these horror stories about missing exams and getting denied because of it.

I agree with dav_marine 72.

However, from what you have posted, the VA failed to notify you of your C&P exam in a " timely manner" .

JMHO. Call the phone number of the C&P clinic listed on the C&P notice lettter tommorow. Tell them of your delima, and of their "failure to notify you in a timely manner", and then politely ask the clerk for another appointment date.

I would not like to see, "failure to report to a C&P exam" show up in your denial notice.

Sorry for all the hoops disabled vets have to jump through just to get what they have earned. Let's hope things will change soon.

Good luck,

Cmdr. Bob

Thanks guys. I will call the number tomorrow and try and get it rescheduled. I was just really bummed out when I saw that I missed the exam. I need to start going on ebenefits everyday just to not let this mishap creep up on me again. I kind of wish they could have scheduled both these exams in one day as it is a 1 hour drive to the va hospital but in any case, i'm just glad my claim has finally seen some light.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
