  • 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 notes on ebenefits

Question

Hello Everyone

I recently had a 2nd C&P Exam for the same SC injury due to the 1st doctor didn't fill out all the boxes of the DBQ on that exam. So VA scheduled a 2nd C&P exam with a different doctor due to the first doctor didn't completely fill out the DBQ to completion. So weeks went by and so I decided to go on ebenefits to view my C&P Exam however there was a note on file stating You may not view this completed C&P administrative note. C&P note has addendum???? I thought every vet is entitled to notes concerning there health? Should I be concerned? My completion date is next week and the status has not changed?? Any suggestions anyone???

If the C/P exam was conducted at a VA facility it should be in your medical records,  unless a VA facility has the authority to withhold it from the veteran  for more than 3 business days, it should be accessible.  At the  VA facility in Temple Texas my exams were available in one case before 3 days...... 

Ini a case where the c/p exam was done by a contractor... it will take a long time to get a copy of the exam.. I requested a copy of a C/P exam (that I send to the regional office) on an exam in January and I still don't have a copy.

You could get a copy if you file a Freedom of Info Form, but the decision will be done long before you get the report. There must be some SOP not to disclose when they have an addendum to a dbq: it happened to me  as well. Your best course of action is just to wait it out another week and see. You can always file after the decision anyway. They wouldn't tell me anything when I called Peggy either.

Yes , however  I requested copies of my exams from Jan 2019,  I am still waiting for them 7 months later.  In the meantime, you only have 1 year to file a Notice of Disagreement (NOD) so to protect the claim you might want to file the NOD and later go back and amend the NOD  due to not having  a copy of the C/P examination in a reasonable amount of time.

How how did you request a second C&P? I had one Friday and the doctor made zero mention of one of my request for evaluation

Hello creek chub I didn't request a second C&P. The VA did that based on the 1st C&P Exam. I guess that doctor didn't fill in all the necessary boxes to make a determination  that they felt that they needed another doctor to fill in the blank. This is where all the VA funding is going to pay out doctors that didn't do the job right and getting another doctor to finish up the first doctors job. This is crazy and considered misuse of VA funding.
