  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Did you get a bogus C & P exam?


  • HadIt.com Elder

I have posted this info here many times but it I almost impossible to find under a search-

If you get a bogus C & P exam, you can request a better exam.

By "Bogus" I mean:

Was the examiner, when you googled their name, not qualified to do the type of exam you got?

For example a male vet here with a leg disability- maybe PAD, got a negative C & P exam done by a Gynecologist.

A few years ago I got a C & P exam ,I think regarding my husband's HBP. and the examiner stated it was an "in person" exam. By then my husband had been dead for over 20 years. The issue was resolved under CUE, because of other evidence.Claim denied, three weeks later awarded.

Also, if the examiner did not have your records ( I got a C & P exam thrown out due to that crap) or if the examiner had your records but obviously did not take the time to read them properly, you can request a better exam pointing out their errors ad what the examiner overlooked.

Another C & P result I got long ago, had the name of the doctor in the decision ( they dont put there names in decisions anymore) and after I called the doctor, both he and I realised the most important evidence I had , was deliberately withheld from him-- an autopsy.-That caused a denial of my 1151 DIC claim.

Within a short period of time I received a FTCA award for wrngful death and sent it to my VARO and the y denied again by refusing this time to consider the info from the General COunsel.I made a quick hone call to the OGC, and then received a copy of a letter the OGC sent to the VARO prdering them to award the 1151 claim. The award came soon there after.

The Regional COunsel of the VA wanted to settle with me a few months after getting my SF 95 under FTCA. He had received a VA Peer Review that suported all of my charges.The RC, the reviewer, and even the Peer review disappeared from the VA and I had to start all over again with the OGC in DC.

I had so much evidence od malpractice by then, that  I didnt need that positive VA review, but it's disappearance caused my FTCA case to take  about 2 years longer.

I found the "non existent " per OLMA ( VA Office of egal and Medical)6 page review ----at the very bottom of my C file years later and I used it in 2010 for my AO IHD death claim.

The only C & P examiner I ever needed an IMO for was an Endocrinologist. It was a diabetes claim, so she was the right type of opiner to use.

But I sent Dr Bash (my IMO doctor) the medical errors she had made in two separate opinions on my diabetes death claim, and he stated in one of the IMOs how her opinion was medically "inaccurate." ( I would have used the word ridiculous-maybe I did on appeal, as it was ridiculous as well as medically inaccurate)

If you feel you have a strong basis to request a new C & P exam,you should try to do that without even waiting for a denial that you might well need to expect.

The C & P exam controls the outcome of most of our claims.

Some Veterans here have taking steps to get a new and proper C & P exam.I hope they chime in.

A bad C & P exam will force a denial and many exams can be corrected by taking swift steps.

As a widow of a SC vet ,every single posthumous C & P exam the VA ever did was Wrong medically.

Good advice Berta.  I filed a formal complaint about a C&P examiners exam to the VARO head person.  Within a few months, I had a two extra C&P exams for the same condition.  They dismissed the

Good job by you, El Train. I agree, you go further (most of the time) if you keep your mouth shut. Just give the examiner enough rope and if they do you wrong, itemize in your formal complaint why you

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...

      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.

      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.

      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.

      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"

      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.

      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.


      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating

      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%

      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008

      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)

      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%

      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

      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,
