Gainesville, Florida C&P exam

Question

In Gainesville, Fl the C&P exams are done in a building that is 4 miles away from the VA Hospital.   I had a C&P exam done there and was wondering if the exam will be viewable (after 3 days time) on MyHealtheVet?     Other C&P exams that I have had done at the VA Hospital in Ann Arbor were.    

Thank you

Nope, you will have to go to a va clinic or hospital and go to release of information and ask them to print them out for you.....some will and some won't.  I have to get mine printed out, even my doctors can't see those cp exams.  Something to do with Gainesville cp location. That is a VA cp location, fyi ;)  and don't trust a single person who gives you an exam there, no one!

The VA did a policy letter that blocked vets from getting the exams that the VBA has until after the claim is finished. Is it a violation of your rights? Probably. But you will need a lawyer to fight them about it. Most vets dont have that kind of cash laying about to make a point.

QTC and VES both are contractors with the VBA. They send the reports directly to the VBA and the VHA does not get it. Its a pain, but it is what it is.

Just my experience; I had a C&P at Gainesville in 2015. I faxed the Gainesville VA Hospital ROI the proper form, and the report arrived in 10 days by mail. seminoles has the better option. However, if you can't make the drive:

Gainesville VA Hospital ROI Fax# 352-374-6126

And that thing about not releasing the report untill you have no pending claims is BullS#^&, it just depends on which clerk you talk too.

P.S. Don't know if it helped, but I called first and told the ROI clerk I was sending the fax, and why. I also told him I would be grateful if the report could be expedited as I needed it for a time sensitive claim.; good luck.

Was it contracted out to VES or QTC? You won't see it on ebenefits then you have to request it in writting to your Regional office, saying in the letter your requesting it name SSN date of the exams what they were for and under Freedom of information Act? Just am currently working on the same thing unless you have an attorney then he can get you a copy. There's a few other ways like faxing the evidence intake in Wisconsin or mailing them which takes 2-3 weeks to process and mail out. I'm currently doing the same task it's funny I talked to a guy at the RO I said the 18008271000 said some here and have you fax the request FOIA to WI for something you could if you wanted print out for me right now? He said he can sure fax the intake but they cannot at the RO just give them to me since I have an open appeal and claim open that they might be used for and were requested by the VA for. Your exams done at the Va hospital will be available in about 3-10 days at most depending how quickly they are uploaded in.

I tried that today at the release office she said she couldn't find them she called which they sent me across the street to the regional Office where they said I wasn't allowed to get a copy until my none of my claims were pending. Starting to get angry I said does this make any sense I explained the 1800 said to come here and another option is to have the Regional office IE you fax the evidence intake requesting a copy just to wait another 2-3 weeks in the mail, or you could just print them out for me? He just said come back on the 7th of September which is another appt I have there...

    • 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.

    • Cue Claim Template?
      I was told by my VSO to write a statement for a CUE claim. I am looking at the CUE because the VA didn't follow VA Training Letter 10-02 that should have directly S/C'ed me for my tinnitus without an exam, but also because they approved my Re-open claim 2 years later and the only difference was a new C&P exam.

      Any help would be great. This is what I came up with:

      I respectfully request the VA to call a clear and unmistakable error on part of the January 3, 2013 decision from the Boise VARO and to correct it.

      In this Decision Letter, I was denied service-connection for Tinnitus. I mentioned tinnitus (ringing in the ears) on my April 4, 2012 Statement in Support of Claim for hearing loss. Tinnitus is listed as a deferred claim on my September 4, 2012 Decision Letter. I submitted a Statement in Support of Claim for Tinnitus on September 5, 2012 and again on October 25, 2012.

      I was given a C&P exam on August 14, 2012 by Audiology and Hearing Aid Center in Boise, Idaho.

      I received my Decision letter with the denial of Tinnitus on January 3, 2013 stating that “Your service treatment records do not contain complaints, treatment or diagnosis for this condition”.

      During my C&P exam, it was stated that I didn’t have any mention of tinnitus in my Service Treatment Records (STR).

      On the Compensation and Pension Exam Inquiry dated July 13, 2012 on page 3, the hearing exam that was completed on 4/1/2008 is also where my tinnitus was identified while in service, but there was no mention of my tinnitus in the inquiry.

      The evidence listed on my Decision Letter dated January 13, 2013 listed Service Treatment Records from June 5, 1989 to March 3, 2010.

      In VA Training Letter 10-02 dated March 18, 2010, on page 7, item #5 it states: If service treatment records mention a complaint of tinnitus and the veteran claims tinnitus and has current complaints of tinnitus, a medical opinion regarding possible causation is not required. Service connection can be established without an opinion about the specific cause of the tinnitus because it began in service.

      The VA's failure to consider and evaluate the evidence and follow VA Training Letters that the VA had in their possession manifestly altered the outcome of the decision referred to above.

      If the Tinnitus claim was approved on the Decision Letter dated January 13, 2013, it would have increased my rating from 60% to 70% at the time.
