    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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 Severity Examination While In The Middle Of Bva Appeal



Hi, I just received a letter from the VARO stating that I should be receiving a letter for the scheduling of a C&P Exam to re-evaluate the severity of my current disability (lumber cervical issues,and flat foot conditions). I also am in the middle of an appeal with the BVA, I've already had my Live Video Conference Hearing on March 11, 2014, (the judge requested more current records, which I had submitted by April 11, 2014), still my current status says File is with Veterans Law Judge. My condition has actually gotten worst with the back issues, so is this good or bad? Also is this weird to get a c&p exam for reevaluation of disability, and be in the middle of an appeal?? Just seems a little strange.

This is good. The Judge probably ordered the C&P and a rating. This might expidite your claim since the law judge is keeping your file. I don't want to give false hope, but this is JMO. If your condition has worsened then this is news for a higher rating than you would have gotten.

So i'm in an appeal for cervical issues from 2007. I'm assuming i'm being re-evaluated for the 5 year severity c&p evaluation of my service connection for lumbar strain, with DJD, flat foot condition. But does BVA have access to a C&P exam, which i just found out today that is scheduled for Saturday?? Thats just the part that I thought was odd, because i didn't think the Veteran Law Judge could see a current file at the VA. Any ideas or light shedding would be appreicated.

Was this C & P exam part of a BVA or CAVC remand ?

If being done at a VAMC you could request a copy of it and hopefully it will be favorable to the claim.

VA did a C & P on my deceased husband in 2008 due to a BVA remand and I got a copy of it right away and rebutted it medically as being too speculative and I sent the exam copy and my rebuttal to the BVA right away.

BVA agreed it was too speculative and awarded with the 3 IMOs and other probative medical evidence they already had.

Berta this is just a regular evaluation for my back service connection lumbar issues, i have a appeal case thats with the veteran law judge, so i think this is a separate issue im thinking. I called the c&p department and the rep saod this was a back re evaluation to see if the condition has worsened or improved. So should i submit this c&p exam findings to the veterans law judge once i get the report or leave it alone? The case is not in remand or anything its still be decided upon im assuming

If it is separate, then still try to get a copy in case you need it.

I guess I thought it would have something to do with the cervical issues in the claim with the BVA judge............

Flat feet..... that can lead to many other problems, with knees,hips, ankles and back.And aggravate those conditions too.
