  • 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.

    • 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
