    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

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.

Anybody?

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

Buck,

''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.''

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
