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.''

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
