  • 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

C&P exam with a DBQ

Question

First let me thank all of the members who have posted so much good informational conversations. It has helped and opened my eyes a lot during this long and tedious process. The question I have, with a bit of background information. I have been seeing my primary care provider, which is an MD, for about 8 years. During these 8 years he has diagnosed me with IBS, Migraine headaches and PTSD, with a Psychiatrist diagnosing me with PTSD as well. During this time he has also diagnosed me, most recently, with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. With that being said, he completed a DBQ for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I filed the claim and was surprised that I was called to Myrtle Beach, SC for a C&P exam. The reason I say that, is because he also filled out a DBQ on the Migraines and IBS and I did not have to go to a C&P exam. I was just rated. Again, with all of this being said, I went to the C&P exam and had the exam with a P.A.? During the exam, I gave her 2 pages of notes that I had put together of my symptoms and how it affected my daily life and how long I've been living with this. During her exam, she listened to my lungs, my heart and looked at my throat and my ears. That's all that she did. Can a P.A.'s exam override a MD's DBQ? And with the brief exam, it left me thoroughly confused. What was the purpose of this?

Have you been denied?

or just want to know the difference between the two Dr's?

A MD would carry more weight than a PA.

And they should use the PCP DBQ's to Address your disability/Symptoms.

This is what a DBQ is for.

Check with the C&P Chief about this at your VMC  or get with a Reputable VSO

However you may want to wait and see what your decision is  and then Disagree with it if they low-ball you, and look up the degree of symptoms that fit your disability's and request that rating be giving per each condition.

or request the highest rating allowed by Law be given for each S.C. Condition.  according with the CFR's

Well, I just looked on ebenefits and they denied my claim! Just waiting for the letter. 

I suppose I'll go to my VSO and start the appeal. 

I am so fed up with the VA!

    • 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.
