    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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

Qtc? They Are Slower Than Varo


KennyJ

Question

Does anyone have any experience with QTC doing their C&P exams. According to VARO they are the reason that my claims haven,t been being rated yet. Took exams in July and August and they have not been returened yet. Its amazing the ways the VARO finds to cause distress to vets. I wonder how they would feel if their pay was held up for months and years.

1968,

You stated "The one C&P that I mentioned above was obviously a "CANNED" evaluation bent to denial. There was stuff in it that was not looked at nor mentioned during the C&P. Much it was certain canned lies, designed to deny. The other 2 C&P were not that way

The QTC could care less what rating a veteran receives, They get paid for the C&P exams one way or another. If they were really out to get you, wouldn't you think the other two exams would have been like the first one? There isn't any conspiracy!

Prior to writing your C&P, QTC will have all your SMRs, recent VA C&Ps, and VAMC records.... the whole file. But, most likely, you will not see the file. One 1 QTC C&P, I did see the file and it was the entire thing

If the doctor needs to make a nexus statement, they better have your entire file in front of them! Of course you won't see your file. You aren't the doctor. If you need to see your file, just request to see it at your RO and/or request a copy of it. They aren't trying to hide anything from you!

They will not only base their evaluation on your examination (10 minutes), but also on your C-file

Like I said before, if they need to make a nexus statement, they better have the thing in front of them for consideration.

Thus, the QTC report is more than a C&P and becomes the basis for the Rating Board's decisions. Thats what their contract states in its Statement of Work, I am sure

A C&P exam is just that, an exam so the RVSR can evaluate the veteran's disability(ies).

But, I am sure that QTC uses templates designed to deny. But, if the facts are in your SMR, then QTC is dead.

Like I said, they could careless what rating the veteran gets. They get paid regardless.

I am sure if my SMR facts and IMOs were not reviewed by QTC, my QTC C&Ps would have been disasterous. The SMR, IMOs, and VA medical records saved my QTC evals.... for sure. I developed my records way before the QTC evals..... and shot QTC in the head before they could pull their guns

One has to remember, medicine is science and no two doctors are the same. There are bad doctors the world over, not just working for VA and QTC. Just look at all the malpractice cases out there.

I had a C&P exam in Feb of 06. The whole thing took about 10 minutes. The other 2 I had previously took about 45 minutes each. As a result of the Feb 06 exam the RO proposed cutting my % from 50 to 30. some QTC doctors are lazier than others and do not take the time to do what they have to do. I got a IMO from a non-va doc and a statement from my va doc and was able to keep my 50%. I didn't even have to go to a hearing that I requested. My vetrans service rep took the medical records to the rating officer and in 3 days the rating officer finished the review and found in my favor. I believe that QTC keeps the va contract based on what they deliver. They have written into the contract what percentages they can maintain for va. If you look up qtc medical services in a google search it will list the quality assurance goal and things of that nature. Some va hospitals have va docs that do the C&P exams but I do not know if Va Fayetteville N.C. has va docs that do this. Anyone know if Va Fayetteville does this? Dale Jr. 8
