Can Ro Overide C&p Rating Decison?

I haven't got an official rating deciding yet but I would like to ask this question as I stress awaiting the final rating decision. Can an RO disallow a recommendation from my VA Doctor and C&P examining doctor to rate me with Restriction of Activities for my uncontrolled DMII condition? I might be jumping the gun on this but I had a very recent C&P for my neck and headaches, and this C&P doctor ask me additional questions about my Restriction of Activities and number of times I was hospitalized. And in her C&P report for my neck/headaches, she added the section for DMII and marked the block that I should not be rated for Restriction of Activities. Can this be done? So can anybody give me some feedback on this issue?

Best Regards

A rater does not have the authority to override C & P results because VA raters are not doctors.

Can you scan and attach the C & P exam results here?

(Cover C file number, name, address first)

Its like everything else at the VA. While its true, technically, no "lay evidence" can not be used to refute the opinion of a medical professional, and this includes "judges" lay evidence.

This being said, just because there are rules preventing it, does not mean VA will necessarily comply with its own rules.

I've calmed down a little since my last post and what I saw on eBenefits today. When I opened eBenefits this morning and to my surprised I notice that I was scheduled for a C&P appointment today. I immediately called the I-800 number and was first told that it looks like I missed the appointment. He further researched the problem and said that it was a General DBQ with another doctor concerning my contentions (he couldn't tell me which one) but I was not required for be present. Well, I certainly learned something new today. This shocker C&P was scheduled before 0700 hrs and completed at noon. When this is all over I will let everyone know the outcome. Very interesting. More to follow...

Best Regards

  • 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.


    • 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.
