    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

So what I though was right about the C&P


I had a TBI C&P around the end of August this year and it was outsourced though MSLA.

The C&P exam was extremely short, roughly around 10 minutes maybe less.

I felt that the examiner basically shat on me.


I picked up my C&P report at the VA Hospital through ROI yesterday.

The TBI C&P exam report was a joke, he marked down NO on everything!!!!!!

I have attached the report of the exam....

Opinions and help is VERY welcome!

I feel so defeated......


However the PTSD C&P exam report looks to be favorable but who knows at this point..... SMFH!

I can't see these.??

but if you feel you had an Inadequate C&P go see the C&P Director and request another C&P with a different examiner, and give your reasons...its obvious this examiner never read your Records in the first place.

if not  then NOD the decision

if I didn't have a couple decades of medical records and a 6 month in patient stay with complications, the phony c&p would have been the end of my claims, the c&p is phony and the doctors there are worthless.. they have an attitude that we are liars and phonies,  you can tell with their snotty attitudes.... they just are not nice, are ready to pounce with saying crude nasty things, like I don't have time for your long answer.... I see no evidence... and it goes on and on when I saw the c&p.... who know what they are writing..... so in a way I am lucky I spent 6 months fighting for my life in a va hospital, or else there would be no records...

@retiredat44 I had a co worker that was forced out of his because he of his TBI, his  seizurs kept getting worse and one of his doctors finally took away his drivers license.

I just want the VA to recognize that TBI IS an issue that I am having troubles with along with my PTSD.

Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

This is my first "BAD" C&P........ and now I know how people feel when they say that.....

My suggestion is to get your own IMO/IME doctor to rebut this C&P exam.  This is they way I have always done if when I was successful.   If you just ask for another exam from the VA you are liable to get one just as bad.  You should get your own doctors who are neurologists to rebut this exam.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
