  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Examiner Lied on my Comp and Pen exam!!!!!!

Question

Hi Guys,  I wont go into much detail to save time for everyone....  I had a Comp and Pension exam last week and the N.P. that conduted the exam,  Completely lied about my Flexion and Extension of my knees.  No gonometer was used so I can eventually appeal this fact after what I think will be a denial..  I am 40 percent now and filed for an increase in October.  Do I have any other recourse for what happened.  He completely fabricated my Range of Motion.....  I really am sickened by the fact that this stuff is happening to Vets in 2016, and it seems like there is little we can do about it.   Any help would be great.  Thanks

Was your C&P done in house (va ) or was it contracted out thru QTC or another contractor?

this same exact thing happened to me last month.  I was PISSED when I left the exam.  the NP was already late by 20 minutes when she came out to the waiting room and with me there she went on to have a 20 minute discussion with a recruiter of the VA hospital, apparently trying to get a full time position.  we go back, I sit down with both knees out straight.  I have 2 30's on my right knee and was trying to get an increase on my left SC knee.  she grabbed my knees bent them back as far as she could and I said, "that really, really hurt.  please don't do that again."  that was ignored and she did it to my right knee.  at that point I wanted to leave (probably should have).  she looked at me and said, "you have 90 degree right there."  I told her that at this position I am in extreme pain.  she didn't even blink.  I told her that in my 20 years of being in the VA system nobody has ever done a ROM test like that.  Usually it is done standing up and with a measuring device.  she stated that well, I do it differently.  when I left I knew it wouldn't go in my favor and 7 days later I got the denial.  I was SO happy they didn't reduce my right knee disability.

    • 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.
