C&p Ptsd Error

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




I filed a statement on ebenefits stating to the rater that the PTSD C&P was not correct with the DRs Statements. The DR stated that I was in a helicopter crash and the pilot had his eye slashed and he hurt his arm. I stated that this was not true. First I told them that the helicopter lost power with the red lights and emergency alarms going off. The pilots managed to get the engines restarted so we did not crash. Then the DR stated that my fire patient was burned severely. That also I did not state. The patient had some first and second degree burns with smoke inhalation. So I submitted this information. The VA has not asked me for support for these stressors yet but I noticed that they have stated that they have requested information from me on 11/30 but I have not received anything from them on it. I submitted a statement of my stressors that my VA social worker had me wright up what really happened and I told the VA in my statement to look for this to show that I was not lying to the DR.

My questions to you are.

Will the VA require a new C&P due to this error from the DR?

Will this hurt my chances sense the DR diagnosed me with PTSD?

thank you

"Will the VA require a new C&P due to this error from the DR?"

possibly not

"Will this hurt my chances sense the DR diagnosed me with PTSD?"

With your MOS as Medic I don't think it will.

But it is difficult to predict what the VA will do.

Thank you Berta I really appreciate your insight on this. I have been stressing like you would not believe about this. The exam was only 10 min but the DR had notes everywhere on the paperwork when I came into the room and he had stated to me he wanted to get me out of there quickly and that he would get me Service connected for depression due to pain so I was rather surprised to hear from my social worker that the DR had also done his own diagnosis of PTSD. I just don’t want the VA to spend an additional 6 months looking for something that does not exist.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
