Even if you have a current DX from your VMC Psychiatrist or Psychologist PhD for PTSD, I don't think that changes the current VA Regs requiring a Forensic PTSD C & P.

Do you currently use a VSO as POA Representation? If so, ask them to check the status of your PTSD C & P scheduling. Did you have to send additional PTSD Stressor evidence, post FDC filing? That could have derailed your FDC.

At any point in the FDC, the VA Rating Dept can change it into a Reg Axx claim. You actually hit the Submit Button, 07/15, you may be somewhat prematurely anxious.

Don't get too worried about completion dates. They will change in every claim. Instead try to stay in tune with what they need and keep pushing for c&p exams.

Current DX, yes. C&P, well, not yet. will pursue to find out more though!

I did have to submit this stressor evidence post filing :-/ yikes.

So I feel safe enough to assume my claim is now a "Reg Axx claim" ...what can I be hopeful toward expecting now?

The Heat is on for the VA to speed up Decisions on original claims. Notification of your C & P date will be telling, the sooner the better. All your PTSD evidence is in your VMC med records, right?

You should review the PTSD DBQ. Keep in mind, this C & P will be a "Forensic Exam," looking for signs of over-reporting of symptoms.

At the end of the Exam. ask the Dr his opinion, Do you have PTSD. If the C & P exam is conducted at your VMC, a copy of the DBQ should appear in your Med Records within a week. If you can't pull it up on your MHV link, stop in at the VMC Med Rec Dept. to get a print copy.

While your there, ask for a complete copy of your Med Rec on CD, takes about 2 weeks to receive.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
