  • 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

Phone C&P Exam

Question

I had a C&P Exam over the phone. It was the first time that happened to me. I have had many of them but none over phone before. I was asked questions and then was told that I might want to make an appointment with my primary care physician to possibly get updated treatment. Can't wait to see her report that she sent to the RO to finish my claim or send it back to the board.

Have anyone else had a phone C&P exam before?

If there is a substantial amount of treatment records, a telephone C&P is common.  Usually, it is a positive thing.

wish you well!

Well that's good to hear. I will let you know how it goes. I will see if there's anything from the phone exam in my medical records in a few days.

I just got a copy of my C&P exam from my file. Under TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED:[ MEDICAL OPINION FOR SECONDARY SERVICE CONNECTION ] it states: 

a. The condition claimed is at least likely as not (50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the results of the Veteran's service connected condition.

Is it stating that my condition is connected to my disability?

it's a positive comment in support of claim. 50% or greater probability- negative option would have been "not likely."

As you're already at 100% would like to hear if the VA goes back and reviews all other SC disabilities.

At the time I put in the claim in 2004 I was 80% and was denied. I appealed but didn't hear back on my appeal until I brought to their attention in 2006. In 2008 I got a temporary 100% but three months later it went down to 90%  but they gave me IU and then in 2009 I was granted 100% after putting in a claim for another disability.

So I am hoping they back date it to 2004.

    • 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.
