What are they examining? If you are P/T you shouldn't have re-examinations. 

I think the answer is simple on this one. Mr. James G was just awarded 100% SC for his heart (The award letter (received Sept. 5th 2019) say's they will schedule says they will re-exam me between Apri

Something is amiss. Are you sure you are rated 100% P&T? Or is it TDIU? Can you redact your personal info, name, ssn, case #, etc. and post your last award letter. If you are TDIU, it probably says a time period on it on when your next anticipated exam may be.

I'm not TDIU . I am 100% SC P&T .

I agree with Broncovet. The VA can reduce any veteran except for the ratings protected by the 20 year rule. It really boils down to the type of disability in question.  If you are service connected for heart or lung disease for example the VA will have more difficulty because those are progressive issues. The VA must play by its own rules. 

For sure I am 100% SC P&T ! Ischemic heart disease was the last one for 100% (100% just for the heart diease) . I previously already had 50% for hearing (40%) and tinnitus (10%) .

James G The answer is of course the VA can and does reduce ratings. They make the rules and they can break the rules. However, it isn't usual for them to make a 100% P&T and in the same award letter give you a re-schedule exam date. The first big milestone is 5 years; after going 5 years they have to have strong  evidence that your disability has improved. When did you get the granted condition? Obviously, heart conditions are not in that category; the get progressively worse. If your rating was correct when it was awarded, you should not have a worry.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
