    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 Results Question

Question

Just looked up my C&P exam results from Wednesday (6 Sept). Trying to figure out the results. It seems there may be an error in the first "B" and "C". Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.

 

TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR DIRECT SERVICE

CONNECTION ]

 

b. The condition claimed was less likely than not (less than 50%

probability) incurred in or caused by the claimed in-service injury, event

or illness.

 

c. Rationale: Based on interview and examination of the Veteran, review of

the Veteran's VBMS case file, review of the Veteran's VHA medical

records, and review of relevant medical references the Veteran's LEFT hips

conditions as described in the Hip Conditions DBQ are as least likely as not (50% or

greater probability) incurred during his military service as documented as

complaints of LEFT hip pain & assessment of LEFT iliotibial band syndrome

are documented in his STRs. As directed nexus is reasonably demonstrated the

secondary nexus question proximally is rendered moot.

 

 

TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR SECONDARY SERVICE

CONNECTION ]

 

a. The condition claimed is at least as likely as not (50% or greater

probability) proximately due to or the result of the Veteran's service

connected condition.

 

c. Rationale: Based on interview and examination of the Veteran, review of

the Veteran's VBMS case file, review of the Veteran's VHA medical

records, and review of relevant medical references the Veteran does not have current

symptoms of plantar fasciitits. His current symptoms are attributable to

LEFT cuboid syndrome. The Veteran's LEFT cuboid syndrome is as likely as not

(50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the result of leg length

discrepancy due to altered gait biomechanics caused by the leg length

discrepancy.

I would take a guess they rate you at 50% and possibly 60%

the 60% from this, but I could be totally wrong on what this EXAMINER WAS THINKING.

''LEFT cuboid syndrome. The Veteran's LEFT cuboid syndrome is as likely as not

(50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the result of leg length

discrepancy due to altered gait biomechanics caused by the leg length

Thanks Buck. I was a little perplexed on the first opinion (hip) where he says "less likely than not" in para "b" and then "as least likely as not" in para "c".

I answered a different post from you today somewhere here -but  please disregard it-----I thought it was a possible grant for plantar faciititis- but this is a different C & P exam.

It is a better exam anyhow than the other one was. They should SC the left  leg disability. And any leg disability can cause a major foot disability. or even a bilateral foot disability.

Well.....claim is complete. Was hoping for a little more but at least they were all service comp. Not sure how I will proceed. Is the best option a "reconsideration" ? Does that have to be done within 60 days? I am preparing to have an "independent medical examination" before anything.

    • 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.
