Can I Be Charged For The C&p Exam?


jseale

Question

I noticed today is a that the payments section is showing a check was mailed in the amount of $0.00. I always receive my current c&p payments through direct deposit. When I click on that payment it shows the amount that the check would have been, and then shows a deduction for that same amount (which wasn't much). It says the type of deduction is: "Medical Care Cost Recovery Receivable Repayment" with the reason: 'Establish Recurring Deduction'. I have no clue what this is supposed to mean. I have no co-payments, and don't owe the VA any money (as far as I know). Anybody know what this could be for? I do know that when checking in the 'download VA letters' section, my rating has not changed yet. Don't know why this payment would have been sent out, much less as a paper check.

So I called the VA about this payment... all she could tell me is that a medical institution that had to do with the VA sent a bill. The VA rep could not tell me anything about the bill, but that I am having to pay for it. I have not been to any other medical 'anything' except through the VA, except when it was contracted for me to do my C&P exam. Could they be charging me for this C&P exam? Do they usually charge the vets for this? She said that my September payment is showing that I will be receiving $0. Did I miss something here?

I have not been seen for anything outside of the VA, except when VES setup my C&P exam.

Sorry for such a long post for my very first post. Just trying to get some input from anyone about this.

You should not be charged for a C & P exam ordered by your VA regional office as the result for a claim you filed with their office. Also, you should receive travel pay from the VA when you travel to a C & P exam. However, you do have to submit a claim for the travel pay.

Any bills you receive from the VA might be your required co-payments for treatment at the VA medical facilities. If you have a rating of 50% or higher! you do not have to pay co-payments. Co-payments may be waived for veterans with lower ratings if they have a financial hardship.

I have already received the travel pay. The C&P was contracted through VES.

So how can I find out what the payment was for? The vet rep that I spoke with said that she couldn't tell me who or even what the payment was for.

jseale,

I should have taken the time to read your post better before I responded. I do not know the answer to your question. Hopefully others on this site can help.

Good luck.
