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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Is there a number or email (preferably) for VES, QTC, or LHI.

The issue involves C&P exams performed by the contractors, but exams hasn't been forwarded by the company.

Veteran had a C&P exam with VES on 1/12/21 for back condition (thoracic sprain syndrome).

He called PEGGY, however they didn't see the uploaded exam.

VES is unvailable due to the power outages across Texas. He gets a message and extreme wait time on the phone.

I searched the issue and saw comments about exams being forwarded but not uploaded by the VA.

In addition, some members had conflicting statements about VES forwarding exam and Peggy stating the information hadn't been received.

Are the contracting C&P examiners mandated to forward the exam in a set period of time?

Is there a email option to inquire if an exam has been completed and forwarded to the VA?

I think @shrekthetank1is correct here. I was also told this during a VES exam not long ago. Although, my exam was uploaded after about 3 weeks. I am currently being given the run around with QTC. Been

Its the same thing. The efolder IS the system. I have no idea how Ebenefits works for how and when it updates. Thats why we have nothing to do with it.  The reason you can't usually request recor

You can try to contact the clinic where the C&P was completed.  They can tell you if it has been sent, but that is about it.  I tried to get a copy and they said to go fly a kite.  But it did shake the tree and got it to get sent faster.

I think they do have a set time of 30 days to get it sent.  That is what I was told at one of my C&P exams.

reports are sent from contractors when they are completed by the respective physician that did the examination. We see them in the Efolder within in a few days as they are uploaded, so if they aren't in there, they aren't in there. Contractor exam sites availability depends on local conditions with Covid, and their staffing, which is not a direct VA issue. So, when PEGGY says they aren't there, they aren't there. 

Which number(s) do you want? All three sites have phone numbers where you can reach them. I can't give you any more direct a line than that, but If  you can't find the general patient contact PH numbers I can get those for you. Some of them have email addresses too, on their site.

If you can get email addresses that is greatly appreciated.

Also, when the report is in the e-folder, is it automatically uploaded in the system.

Been waiting 3 months for an exam of the thoracic spine as well. Keep getting put on a list for events that pop up randomly and have to wait for a call to be scheduled but the call never comes. Unfortunately I have not found an email address (plus I would fear the email would be to the wrong individual and would just end up being forwarded from person to person as that is how these companies seem to operate). However, the number I call QTC with is: 1-800-682-9701.

    • 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,
