    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

Menieres C&P

Question

So I got a call today to schedule a C&P exam for an increase on my SC'd menieres disease. I sent in an FDC claim with all medical records and a DBQ but for some reason they still ordered a C&P(next time if I file again for anything I won't waste my money on a DBQ clearly they aren't worth doing). I am wondering if they will do an audiogram and ENG/VNG testing even if I bring in my reports that I just had done a month ago. I really don't want to go through the ENG testing again because it throws me off for a good week or longer. Can you choose where you get to have your C&P done at, or do they just give you a time and place to show up?

I just asked this question to my Regional Office they said to me since mine was scheduled in another state to write a letter submit it in to ebenefits requesting it be scheduled closer and that traveling over 36 miles to another state when if they outsourced to VES I could be scheduled much closer in Delaware. So yes depends on the circumstances

Well I got a call from QTC about three weeks ago and they told me they could not fulfill the request because they didn't have a doctor available within 200 miles or within 6 weeks. They said it's a specialty and they'd send it back to the VA.  Still haven't heard anything on a new exam so I guess I will just hold tight and wait, this isn't my first rodeo filing a claim and if it is completed in 6 months that's way better then the 3 years I have waited on other claims in the past.

Me either also submit a letter into ebenefits saying why you asked them to send it back which is what the regional office told me to do for the same exact thing. Google Veteran Evaluation Services and see if they have a provider closer which is what I did. Write the letter if VES has one closer requesting a new c&p BE SENT back from QTC and to VES and the reason why and also because VES does have providers within 50 mikes which they will Im pretty confident. I just submitted the letter in on the 14th and was told it was approved by the Regional Office and is with the scheduler right now. I no longer have to travel outside my state now just for this appointment yet it may take a couple more weeks to  happen. If you have any question since I don't know if your regional office is or where I want you to call Office of case management and tell them your situation say about submitting a letter and ask if they can contact your regional office and that's how you will get it done 200 f$cking miles is ridiculous... number 202-530-9470 FYI I am not a fan of QTC their workers will lie to your ear and be like oh if you send it back for a TBI review the VA will never get  you anywhere in the next 2 years I laughed said send it back and now it being scheduled else where and with VES... Don't let them BS you with and scare tactics call QTC call them send it back tell them 18006829701 VES 7122555656 call first speak with a rep tell them your situation I know us Vets check this page and ebenefits daily Im naming ICD ("internet checking disorder) often referred to as OCD

    • 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.
