C&P exam still in draft??!

Question

Newbie! 

So i had 3 C&P exams on Janurary 18th, back to back. General, audiology, and mental health. Yesterday I went to get copies of each one and my general wasn't available. After a few different phone calls I am being told that the doctor hasn't finished the notes of the exam and it is still being drafted. Mean while my exams for the other 2 have already been recieved. Tell me is this normal? 

The guy I spoke to was extremely rude and informed me that I was well aware that this process takes months or years, sure maybe the entire process from start to finish but months to type up the report from the exam? I asked if it may be due to needing more supporting exams and he flat out said no, but otherwise couldn't tell me why it wasn't finished. 

My claim was filed within a year of my separation date if that information even matters.

When was your separation date? And yes it matters because that will be your effective date and for retro pay.

Do you have ebenefits or a myhealthevet account? If the C&P exams were done at a VA, you can access them through those two websites.

My seperation date was december of 2017 and i filed for compensation before then. I know it matters for back pay, let me clarify and say i was wondering if it mattered in regards to the amount of time it was taking the doctor to write the exam notes. 

 

I have both, and my general exam notes are not available as I was told they were still being drafted which is what my question is about.

I apologize for misunderstanding your question. It usually takes approximately 3 to 14 days for a C&P examiner to submit the exam notes. Where exactly were your C&P exams conducted?

That's highly unusual that it's taking that long. Whoever that examiner was is grossly incompetent. Sheesh.

The guy you talked to is a complete idiot for telling you it takes months or years ? That only applies  when a claim gets appealed and transferred to the Board of Veteran's Appeals from a Regional Office.

Fully Developed Claims take about 120 days.

Standard claims take approximately 180 days.

Sounds like you've been getting the run around.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, I was afraid I was getting the run around. They were perfromed directly through the VA. The other 2 exams were submitted within 10 days and its been 24 days and still nothing on the 3rd.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
