  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

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.
