    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

Letter from QTC medical


Question

I just got a letter from the VA (QTC), stating a doctor (Psych doc) from the QTC medical service will review my claim file for VA disability benefits. I already had my C&P exam over the phone by another VA doctor. The letter says Do Not travel, so I don't have to attend another C&P but I was wondering has anyone seen this before and what does it mean?

Sometimes they will do this where they did not get enough information from the first Medical professional and they need someone to give a more in depth look at your case.  

Basically they could not go one way or another and needed more opinions.  Just part of the waiting game!

I would think the VA is sending your complete file to QTC Examiner for a second look?  if you already had a C&P Exam for this same condition?

They maybe doing it this was because of the coronavirus Pandemic?

I know at my VAMC MH Clinics are doing the therapy session with telehealth virtual   my therapist is doing our sessions over the computer she is at her home and I'm at mine,,supposeable  this will continue the rest of the years depending on another outbreak of the covid-19 coronavirus.

I understand, It's just frustrating to think that if the first C&P was favorable they would do this to try and screw me.

Typically if they are doing this they did not have enough one way or another.  I have had two  and one went one great and the other not great, but I finally got the back pay and I am almost debt free.  So always keep the fight up, because if we quit they win!  

We are here to back you up through your fight so you are not alone!

I agree, the letter says the QTC provider will review your VA medical evidence to complete the VA's disability benefits questionnaire. I don't know exactly what that means but we will see.

      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.
