Question

Hey Everyone,

I've had 6 C&P exams in the past year and the first 5 (2 of which were very involved with numerous conditions) had all of the results released within 7 days to my MyVAHeatlh.gov reports.  The last one the C&P guy posted a note after 3 days that said C&P results will be made available 30 calendar days after the completion of the exam.  The exam was for an increase for a condition that 2 previous C&Ps had already documented the evidence for the increase.  Truth be known, I don't know why they didn't just use the Acceptable Clinical Evidence (ACE) method to approve it since the exams literally proved the exact condition severity for the increase. The examiner appeared a bit snippy so I was curious if this guy is just yanking my chain making me wait or were my 5 other results just very quick?

Thanks,
Randy

Recently had an ACE exam myself, and yes, it can be up to 30 days before the information is entered into MHV.

The other exams you did were "inside VA" exams? Those show up pretty quick most of the time.

My clock just started today for another new exam too, both exams done by VES.

This we can't put an answer to.

I DON'T THINK THEY ENTER  CONTRACTED EXAMS INTO MHV.(Myhealthevet notes)..We need to get these exam reports from the release of information at the release of records dept at our VAMC...USUALLY WITHIN 2 WEEKS AFTER THE EXAM.

(at least I never had any luck getting them from Myhealthevet?)

 you just HAVE TO WAIT TO GET THE REPORTS  BUT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THEM BEFORE 30 DAYS?  CHECK WITH RELEASE OF RECORDS PERSONAL IN A WEEK OR TWO AT YOUR VAMC, USUALLY AFTER 3 DAYS BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHEN THE EXAMINER SENDS IN HIS REPORT. SO YOU MAY NEED TO WAIT A FEW MORE DAYS.

Solid advice from Buck52 here.  I do not believe they add the outside exams to our myhealthvet records either.

VA says they haven't gotten the report either.  The C&P was done at the same facility as the last 4.

Ok this usually means the examiner has not sent it to the VA yet?

give it a couple weeks  and awgv001 could be right on it might take the 30 days.

   like I mention it all depends on when the examiner sends it back to the VA  Then it may take the VA  a week or so to copy and put them in the records...

the place you checked for them if it was release of medical records   they can  type into the computer for these records your asking for and it will let them know if theses records on in or not.?

  if you specify a date you want.  or the date of your C&P Exams.

Also  the examiner may wait to get all these exams in at once or send them all back to the VA together.  we don't know that  though?

The exam is for a single condition/single C&P.  The 2 other C&Ps that document the severity of the condition were done earlier in the year and are and have been in the system for months.

There's one thing I really dislike about having to deal with the VA: red tape

Changed to 30 Calendar days as of October 2019. You can request from information office at VA facility where exam performed after 20 "business days" but that would be almost 30 calendar days anyway. If you had xrays or labs with your exam they will still be in BlueButton after 3 days. https://www.myhealth.va.gov/mhv-portal-web/my-healthevet-va-notes-learn-more

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”
