100% or not

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Not sure how to title this or where to put.  

Hypothetical, so numbers are off.

Okay lets say a person is rated 60% for combined various alignments for service connected issues.  

This same person has separate mental issues at 40%.

Mental issues are a separate C&P exam from physical issues

Now this person goes in for a review of his/her mental issues.

Upon C&P completion it is decided the person is now at 100% (which is unlikely of course except extreme cases I am pretty sure)

This confuses me because upon the award letter arrival it states the person is awarded 100% with no further examinations.

Does that mean no further examinations also for the the physical 60% ratings, or just no more reviews for mental.

leaving out all other exact numbers and going above 100%, I am just curious of this particular question.   

Hopefully I hear some good replies because odd enough my mind keeps wondering about this lol

If you are P and T, no further Cand P exams. That verbiage doesn't mean that VHA can't continue to request exams for treatment and followup, it just means that VBA won't request exams for compensation. If it says no further exams, then, no further exams. The P and T applies to the claim, not the contention. Contentions can be static or not, but the claim itself is what is rated permanent and total.

I agree with Broken. P&T is final (unless there was initial fraud.) Once you're P&T, that's it. If they can change it, well then, it isn't P&T, right. But you still can be called for follow-up exams, they just won't be for compensation. Say you have diabetes in your example. The VA is still going to be scheduling you in to see if your conditions are stable or gotten worse. Or now effected some other body system, like your eyes, or extremities.

Based upon your post it appears the veteran would be 100% P & T with no future C & P exams but the veteran would have ongoing future treatment exams. Which I do agree with the above posts.  Now even though the veteran is rated 100% P & T, if the veteran would file a new and separate claim, VA would then have to schedule a new and separate C & P exam.  Example: Say the veteran is rated 100% for mental, 30% for spine and 30% for IBS and is considered P & T.  The veteran then files a new separate claim for migraines, VA would have to set up and schedule a new C & P exam for this claim contention.

    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?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
