  • Moderator

Has anyone ever heard of a NON   PTSD C&P  Exam?

My Reason for asking

I had a Veteran ask me that.

He has never had a C&P Exam    but has filed a PTSD Claim and on his benny's  he said  that they have his status for Preparations for decision?

He never was mailed a letter letting him know of a C&P

so does this mean he maybe denied?  ...even though he never recieved his C&P letter

.when a veteran does not  get informed of a C&P.

AND in his ebenny's it says preparation for decision & if gets denied....wtf?

what can a veteran do in a case like that?

NOD the decison but its not the Veterans fault here   and it just adds more time for his claim to be Adjudicated.

I have seen several occasions where a veteran gets a decision without a C&P.  It is usually because they missed the appointment that this happens.  In this case he will be denied.  Did the veteran call and make sure that he did not somehow miss an appointment that they didn't know was scheduled?

The other possibility is if they were medically separated due to their PTSD and then the VA would use those exams to rate him and may not ask for additional information.

He was not notified of any C&P Exams or any other VA Exams

I mention to him that he needs to call the 1-800 # ask if he has been sent a letter for a C&P Exam and the dates for it. ASAP...

I haven't heard back yet

 he has sent in all the correct documentation medical records from STR'S and his strssors/Notes and VA Diagnoses of PTSD..DD 214 WITH CIB...it does look like he has the proper medical information  along with his diagnoses  that they could possible rate him without a C&P.

I may not be understanding him on this?   here is what he mention in PM


''Hi.  I' m in receipt of a decision letter from VA dated 16 June 16.  Letter starts stating VA has made a decision in your case. First statement is in reference to CUE, stating in Dec 19, 2015 decision, VA made a mistake on the award date.  I NEVER received a decision notification letter last December.  How do I go about getting a copy of the decision letter?''


''I'm still waiting for a rating for Sleep apnea.  Board of appeals letter dated Oct 19. 2015 granted service connection for SA.  I still have not be service connected for SA.  Is this just a matter of time before it's awarded.  Ebenefits shows nothing relavent to SA. Very confusing.''

 That's OK..I had replied to part of the thread but then you added the above reply.

Buck, 15-20 years or more ago I used to help local vets who were pts at the local VAMC here in NY.

There was no internet then as it is now.

But it became overwhelming.

These days if a local vet contacts me about a claim, I tell them to try to get on line with us here because if they cant use a PC, their chances for succeeding with their claim are greatly decreased and every library around has public PCs and some even have free courses on how to use them.They can even get a personal  email addy via a library

If they cant do that ,I give them the contact info for the closest vet reps in our area. One is right at the Bath VAMC.

Everything any claimant  needs to know is here plus the advantage of being able to scan their decisions for us to read because those decisions tell them exactly what they need to give to the VA in order to succeed.We can help decifer the VA lingo for them.

I asked a question here a few weeks ago for a local vet who is PC literate but never joins us and no one answered the question.....but I believe it was a ridiculous question anyhow,and his story changed Again the other day......so I think

after me asking him to join us here many times,over the years, or going right over to the VAMC 20 miles away to see a vet rep,which he has never done yet,  that all he has

is just a story. 

I guess my point is not to burn yourself out Buck.

    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.
