Still Waiting To Be Scheduled

Question

Hello All,

I have a claim that shows "Need From Others" Va Facility, according to Ebennie, which I've read that it means the Va is trying to schedule a C&P exam. Back in March, the VA supposedly was to schedule me a C&P exam between March 1-31, to no avail. So they extend the date to April 30, to no avail. Then, it was extended again until May 18, to no avail. Can someone please tell me WTH is going on?

I, too, have "Need from others" VA facility on my claim.  They are waiting for the reports from 1 contracted doctor out of 3.  The other 2 got their reports to the VA within 2 weeks.  For this last 1, it's been well over a month.  I called VES on Friday, and they said the VES also has a QC program, and they have asked the doc questions on his report, even up to 6:30 Friday morning.  EBenefits just automatically puts the date back out when documents are overdue, or so I've been told.  My claim is (only) 8 months old, and in those 8 months I have yet to see the "benefit" part of EBenefits.

Worrying about this wont make it go faster.  If your claim needs a "tune up" to make it go faster then give it one.  It sounds like this is an increase, since you are apparently already 30 percent  

VA will schedule your c and p exam in its usual unhurried, super slow way, the same way it does everything else, except VA employees paychecks which are on time, right every 2 weeks no matter what.  

You cant fix ebenfits, its too unrelaible, and dont even think of trying to second guess ebenefits.  Buying a lottery ticket is more reliable.

What you can do is to worry about your claim every saturday, between 4 and 5 pm, and not at other times.  If you need to reschedule your "worry hour", then make an appointment to reschedule it at least a week in advance.  Then, dont worry at other times, save it all for your worry hour.  You make that appointment with yourself.  

To tune up your VA claim:

1.  Order your cfile and make sure it has all your information and that its correct.  

2.  Make sure both parts of VA has your current address:  VBA and VHA.  

3.  Re read all your decisions and make sure you are not missing any deadlines, or other information such as dependents.  Fix those if you are.  

4.  Order a "fidget spinner" and spin it on your finger instead of worrying or fretting.

Thanks comrades!

@katnboo2, thank you for the insightful information and like @broncovet said, quick worrying and fretting (will do!)...lol. Oh well, guess I'll continue to play with my granddaughter's "fidget spinner" which would be an understatement to say that it's about to drive me FIDGET, FRICKING, FRANKLY crazy! And yes, it's for an increase and already on it. Tune-up checklist complete! Thanks you both!

Hello All,

Well...the wait is over! I'm scheduled for a Mental Health C&P exam given by QTC Management on June 9, 2017 at 12:00pm. I was also told that this exam will contain a General exam as well. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Will let you all know how it went.

    • 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:
