Exam scheduled, but doesn't say C&P!

Question

Hi all!  VA sent me a letter saying that they sent a request for a private medical facility to do an exam to determine the level of my disabilities?  I filed a claim and the status of that claim is gathering of evidence.  My question is why would the VA request an exam requesting the level of my disabilities? 

 

Thanks for all the help.

 Well so they can give you a rating or Service connect it.

Getting a C&P Exam is usually beneficial for the Veteran that is not rated  or S.C. yet.  or asking for increase.

What you may want to do is gather all your evidence up and take with you to the exam, Dr Med Reports and VA Medical Reports  make copies and take them with you  just in case the examiner don't have some of them...like their suppose to...their suppose to read your Med Records & C-file before the exam  especially if this is a PTSD Claim.

The examiner will determinf the level of your disability by systoms or the severity of it opine by Medical Dr's.

They have a chart they go by  and you can find it  here on Hadit as to what you should be rated at according to your systoms  ect,,ect,, if you get a rating and you don't agree with it  you can file a NOD  (Notice of Disagreement)

Buck52,  the QTC medical service sent me an email that states it will only review records the VA has provided them, and not any records I bring in. My only concern is what if the VA left out some critical information? So, I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.  Really not sure how to tackle this situation.

you can fax QTC and they will send you a copy of the C&P EXAM After they make a decision.

 usually after your C&P exam the QTC Makes his/her report to the VA...VA Makes a decision usually within 2 weeks...so wait about 4 weeks`after the exam or you get a letter from your rep letting you know a decision has been made but its not official until you recieved your packet in the mail.

I waited on my c&p exam copy  for about 4 weeks after the exam...but they made a decision on my claim before they released the copy of the C&P Exam...this is done on purpose to prevent the veteran from submitting more evidence after a decision is made.

you do this in NOD.

If you take any supporting  medical records to your QTC C&P exam 

ask the examiner if these records you take to the exam are in his/her computer?

 b/c if you submitted these records to VA  then the examiner should have them and he needs to let you know if he/she don't have them...then you can let him know you have them and show them to him  if he/she don't let you do that   just complete the exam and be nice and answer the questions the best you can.

and wait see what the results are?

 if you disagree  then request another C&P based from what the examiner stated that he/she never had some supporting records in the computer at the time of your exam  but you mention to this examiner you had supporting medical records but he/she refused to read them therefore ...Inadequate  Exam 

site the duty to assist to the examiner.

Ok, I will bring what I gave the VA just to make sure he/she has it to review when making a decision on the evaluation from the exam.  The information I have is critical because it shows the onset of what I'm claiming from my STR.  Thanks again Buck52!

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.
