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

    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

Will VA schedule me with the same examiner?

Question

I just submitted a claim and I'm sure they will be calling me to schedule a C&P exam.  I had 3 separate exams with 3 different examiners and wanted to know if the VA will schedule me with one of the examiners I have already seen?  Of all the exams I had there is one examiner that is veteran friendly because he is a vet too and seem to understand our fight for benefits.  He did my exam and I won my claim.   I would love to get him for this exam.  I just feel that the VA don't want to send vets to the same examiner twice..  I appreciate any feedback.   Thanks!

That is up to the medical facility, not VBA.  VHA and VBA are more or less two separate entities.  I just want to point that out - a lot of people seem to forget that point.

If they need opinions done, they will *probably* schedule you for the same examiner as you have had.  Exams with opinions take longer (not for you, but for the examiner) because they have to (should) review records, and they get more time to do so.  So it would be more efficient for them, because that examiner already spent the time to review your records. 

But people go on vacation, get sick, and a million other things.  So its not a guarantee or anything. 

Were your other exams for specialists?  Audio, dental, mental?  Not trying to pry, just not understanding why you have already seen a couple examiners.

Tyr, well if i add the audiology exam I had that would be 4 different examiners. That was the only specialist I seen.  Well I just checked ebenefits today and they requested information from the VA medical facility, so that tells me they should be calling to set up an appointment.  Thanks!

Thats weird to have happen. 

I'm not sure what triggers ebenefits to say what it says.  Seems like its always a bit out of whack though. 

You could see if they will schedule you for the examiner you had previously.  I wouldnt absolutely expect it to happen, but I'd expect to definitely not happen if you don't ask.

 

Its also kind of odd that they have already notified you of decisions for some contentions, while you haven't even been to exam for others.  Just noting that.

 

Best of luck to you.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
