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


OCDMarine

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.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

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

    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
