C&P for a secondary condition to ptsd


Kuwaitin08

Question

I had a C&P exam for a secondary condition to ptsd but the examiner had no information about my primary condition (already won claim). To make matters worse, they had no idea the exam was for the secondary condition. Lastly, once I told them, they refused to look at my supporting documentation. She stated they aren’t allowed to look at supporting evidence outside of their exam. 
 

WTF!?

This just goes to show how much the VA is so screwed up.

I would go to the C&P Office and ask to see the Manager of the office  or the C&P CHIEF

as GB Mention ask to see the person that makes the schedules   this is the person who could made the screw up.

Please Note*

I would not say why you want to see them  > if the clerk ask   just say I don't like to discuss things about  business to anyone but the person or persons I need to talk to about it....something like that but be nice

  or you can say you need to check on a C&P that you had on date**--**-****

.if you tell these clerks  the real reason they will go back there and let them know what you want and they may or may not try to hide it and tell the clerk to get rid of you  like no ones on in to see you or they are all out sick  or on vacation   they will lie to you  so be careful as to what you say to these clerks...that's how the VA operates 

they will or should reschedule a new C&P on the secondary condition that your claiming asap.  

if the C&P OFFICE don't get you the results you need  go see the  VA Hospital Director

Well, I would say you just found a $20 bill. Wright a letter to the Manager who does the scheduling or to the chief admin at your RO and tell them what she told you. If your claim comes back as disapproved (why wouldn't it, she didn't eval for the condition), you HLR right away. If that doesn't result in a new C&P but instead, a denial, they are shorting you on due process. I'll bet you get a new C&P pronto; and more likely than not, if your symptoms warrant it, it will be favorable. IMO. If that was negative also, you still have BVA to appeal to.

Just a inquiry 

Did you have this C&P? and did you get the report?  or did the examiner release you and not ask you any questions?   just curious.

usually the cancel it.

As Buck says this just shows how screwed up the C&P process is.  I went to file a complaint with patient services against a doctor that was very ugly and demeaning and gave a five minute C&P exam.  The patient services chief warned me that filing a compliant would look bad on me.  He said he was only one of three neurologists that were at the hospital and it would make it hard for me to get treated.  I realized that he was most likely right and backed out of the complaint. 

The VA holds so much power over the vets and we all know that with power comes abuse.  I am amazed at what the public thinks about the VA.  I have had many people ask me if the VA has straightened out and are aghast when I tell them the truth.  The public supports vets mostly and are being kept in the dark about VA abuses.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
