How do you get copy of C&P Exam?



Asked this question earlier -- please excuse if it has been answered somewhere in the archives -- my brother recently had his C&P Exam.   Where can I get a copy of his Examination findings ?   His MyhealteVet online does not have any records whatsoever.   Do they come with the VA Rating Decision ?

Just do a standard   Records request with the VA.  I use a CBOC and just go see our VA clerks and under 10 pages they will print on the spot.  Larger Requests have to Go over to Records at VAMC.   you can get them digitally also i try and request a digital copy of my record every couple years.  

they C&P does not in my small experience come with rating.

If the exam was farmed out to QTC or another non VA examiner, they will not release it until they decide the claim.

This is GROSSLY unfair to veterans and adds time to resolve the issue, if they deny based on the exam.

When vets get copies of their C & Ps right away, they have a leg up on what to expect, and whether they might have to obtain an IMO/IME.,or even ask for a better exam if the examiner had no expertise in the field of their disability.

Also then they can determine too, if the VA has manipulated the actual exam ,in the SOC.

VA manipulated a posthumous C & P exam on my claims years ago and if I had not gotten an autopsy  done ( the Organ Bank required it)

they could have continued to deny. They parsed the C & P knowing the veteran could not speak for himself.

That's OK I could speak for him. I raised Hell with the C & P doc only to find out he was shocked that they had withheld the autopsy findings from him , as that autopsy , he said, would have completely changed his C & P opinion. They awarded about a few months later on that claim. After theygot notice from the OGC..

It was a Death by VA DIC 1151 award .

Thanks Berta.   They have really taken you and  your beloved passed husband to the mat on your claims.  What a struggle.   They have moved up the decision process to "Pending Decision Approval" on my brother's claim with a date of this week (5/19) for completion!    I'm loading my barrel in advance and have re-read all your comments to my previous inquiries.   I'll let you know what the rating decision is.   Thanks for all of your guidance !

    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.


    • 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.


    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.
