Question

At my DRO hearing I was asked if I'd submit to another C&P to determine if my percentages should be raised. The VSO and the DRO were both pushing for it and I said I would submit to one if it was absolutely necessary. However, really I'd just rather get a denial and move on to the next level of appeals.

I read Benjamin Krause's DRO experience and he's stated that you can refuse a C&P at your DRO hearing. I'm wondering if anyone else has told them to pound sand or what the repercussions might be?

I'm contemplating drafting a letter and sending it to the DRO telling her that I don't want another C&P and would prefer for her to review the available evidence to make her decision.

Thoughts on the matter?

K9MAL,

If a DRO ask you'' would you be willing to submit to another C&P'' that don't necessarily mean you would or he/she would set it up!

They have the ability to set it up right then and there? I was pretty adamant about not wanting to jump through the hoops again. The only thing I'll gain is more time waiting for an exam and decision. I just want the ball to get rolling and move up to the BVA as soon as possible.

What was wrong with the previous C&P. That would be a major question to the DRO.

yes they do but did they? did the DRO render you a decision?

IF a veteran Request a Regional Office Hearing This must be conducted and we must receive the transcript before a decision can be rendered, if the veteran submits or Identifies additional evidence we must develop for and try to obtain the evidence prior to rendering a decision''

^^^ That's what I'm thinking in regards to the initial C&P.

No, they did not render a decision. I was under the impression that I could expect to hear something in about 6 months or more...

Yes they do! Did the DRO Render you a decision?

''If A Veteran request an Regional office hearing, this must be conducted and we must receive the transcript before a decision can be rendered, If the veteran submits or Identifies additional evidence we must develop for and to try to obtain the evidence prior to rendering a decision''.

Appeals

''The RO cannot physically send the claims file to the BVA until all pending NOD'S and all pending claims have been decided, there can be no appeals issues pending before the Regional office at the time claims file is sent to BVA other wise BVA will issue a remand instructing the Regional office to issue an SOC on any pending appeals''.

Sorry some of this sent before I was finished typing it just went poof!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
