In my 9th year of this long wait...BVA denied 2years ago, only for CAVC to remand back.  BVA remanded for new c&p because BVA didnt feel the opinion of outside PTSD dr was enough to grant service connection for ptsd.

  december 13th 2019 had c&p exam and their Doctor found that my PTSD was indeed Service connected. 

My questions are, 

1} Can they still deny the SC?

2} will this be another long process?

Any reply in this regard is appreciated

Yes the RO can deny you still, finding fault with the doctor's reasons and basis.  Hopefully they will not do this at this point.  If you have been to the CAV and BVA and it is again being redone it should be done right.  If your doctor states SC PTSD and gives a nexus you should be good.  As far as how long it should be done pretty quickly compared to how long you took to get here.  The cases remanded from CAV and BVA are supposed to be handled expeditiously.  We never know how the VA is feeling on any given day.

Thanks vetquest. I also hope they dont request another exam. If 2 isnt enough, I dont know what else they could be lookin  for.

Bad enough this is a reopened claim from 1985,  They granted the right to reopen...Now that its been C&P 100% approved by their doctor, would they go back to 1985 or the date they approved reopening?  2010

I would believe that they would go back to 1985 since that was the date that it was reopened for.  Never put it past the VA to go for the date of the C&P or the date it was remanded.  If they do this file for an EED and take it to the BVA if necessary, the RO does not like to give that much away on their own.  Right now we will not worry about that phase though.  Let's hope they go to the date of the reopen.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”
