Anythings possible, usually VA requires a Forensic PTSD/MSA Exam. With that said, all MSA Medical Exam and subsequent Legal Filings with the PD or MP's with legal jurisdiction along with a VA Psychiatrist PTSD MSA DX, could make the actual  In-person Forensic C & P unnecessary.

The VA Forensic examiner could and would probably still have to review all the Medical and Legal Evidence provided, and complete the Rater Requested PTSD/MST DBQ. As long as you currently present with the MSA Markers, a PTSD/MSA SC should be a lock.

Yes.   There are 2 examples when a C and P is unnecessary:

1.  There is sufficient evidence in the file to grant benefits.  (OR DENY).  If probative evidence is already there, then a c and p exam is not necessary.

2.  There is a deal breaker.  A great example is if you dont have the requisite military service or discharge.  No c and p needed to deny you.

How can VA determine current level of disability based on no C&P exam?   If you were 100% and housebound how would they determine that if you don't get C&P.   At my VARO if you skip a C&P it is automatic denial  in  my experience.  If the VA is going to grant 100% but not P&T and housebound then you should appeal and part of that appeal should be that you did not get C&P.  When VA fails to grant P&T and housebound to 100% vet they know that the vet will have to wait years potentially to get those benefits and that you might die in the meantime which is their fondest wish.  For the VA the only good 100% is a dead 100% vet.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
