  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

C&P Exam Reports=copies

Question

 you can get a copy of your C&P report off Myhealthyvet Notes if the C&P was performed at your VAMC,ok we all know that...

Then why is it that if your C&P is performed by a VA Contractor  such as QTC,  then why can't we get that report from myhealthvet? this is holding medical information from the veteran and should not be legal  b/c the VBA (Veterans Benefit Admin) will have that report and they should scan it into the VA computer system  but yet they hold this contractor C&P Report  as to which a 75% of veteran don't know this  or they could go to the VBA Office and ask for that C&P Report..  so why don't they VBA scan the report to Myhealthyvet Notes?  Seems to me this is wrong for the VBA to hold these C&P Reports.

You have to remember that the VBA and VAMC are 2 different organizations within the VA system.  When you submit a claim and the VARO gives you an appointment and an exam, that exam is technically part of your claim until the claim is completed.  Once the claim is completed you have the right to view it through a FOIA request.  I have heard that some VAMC (hospitals) are not uploading the C&P exams because they technically are not part of your medical, they belong to the VARO who is processing the claim.

Just my 2 cents.

Along this same line is that Non VA services that are authorized by the VA are not scanned into the system .

I have complained to the admin about this, but the ole brick wall got in the way!

Anytime the VA or non VA talks to us about medical reasons & Medical EXAMS ANY KIND OF EXAM and purpose its a big part of our concern.

 when we sign the FIOA  then any part of the VA that has medical information on us   we should have the right to see that information or  exam or for what ever reason,,,actually we don't need a reason just a sign FOIA request to see the information.

To hold our medical information from a contractor when we go to a C&P Exam is just one way they try to beat us out of our benefits  with a denial and if the VA sees this is working it won't be long they  will make the VAMC C&P Exams the same way.

According to the FOIA it's unconstitutional

    • 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.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
