Has Anyone Used The New, Have Your Claim Decided On Feature On Ebennies

Question

Has anyone used the "Have your claim decided on" feature on Ebenefits site. As you all know my claim was at the Prep for Decision phase for the last month, then the other day it went back to Gathering of Evidence. Well the Ft Worth VA called today and scheduled a couple of C&Ps at the Ft Worth and Dallas VAs. I have Uploaded, Mailed and Faxed all the Medical Evidence more than once, and I am tired of these idiots. My last two FDC claims I had a couple of bad C&Ps, as either the Docs would not even look at me and hardly talk, or accept my Evidence. These Damn exams are driving me crazy, and I don't feel like driving over 200 and 300 miles round trip to each exam. I am thinking of using this feature in the next few days. As long as the VA grants SC on a few conditions, then I will fight the rest 1 condition at a time from hear out. What do you guys think? Thanks again and hope you have a good week.

Haven't seen the feature, but understand that you can opt for the VA to stop collecting evidence and just make a determination.

From the sea-lawyer standpoint, I can see the VA looking at such a statement as you refusing C&Ps then using your so-called refusal against you. Now you'd be using a VA provided out, but if the RO didn't think they needed the exam results, then they wouldn't have asked for them. You could wind up like a friend of mine. He ran into all sorts of trouble because he wasn't geographically stable enough to make it to C&Ps and wound up getting denied on everything. His RO just closed his claim based on failure to play along. He fought the decision and then landed at 80%. You're currently at 100%, but not P&T, right, shipmate? Last thing I'd want them to do is start making arbitrary decisions that require you to fight your way back up to 100%.

The only way out I can see is to provide N&ME from different doctors that would clarify, without knowing their questions, what it is they're looking for over at the RO. You'd have to get it anyway to help the appeal you'd wind up filing, so why not just file it now? And, if it were me, bite the bullet and make the drives for the C&Ps.

I saw this as well. I was afraid to do it also--trust is a huge issue the VA is still has to earn.

Thanks for the support, I would think that if I use the VA's new Ebennie option to finalize the claim, then I should still be following their guidelines in the end. This is my fourth claim in the last 18 months, and this whole process is driving me Looney, as it does to us all. Just don't have the strength this time. I really appreciate the kind words though, been a while since I heard the Old Ship Mate, Lol!!!

Hang in there bud. It can't rain all the time. I understand the looney part. Cuckoo Cuckoo Cuckoo. The wait times drive me up the wall also.
