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.

    • 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.
