Would this be a CUE


AF SP

Question

 

I have a question according to M21-1, Part IV, Subpart i, Chapter 3, Section A - General Criteria for Sufficiency of Examination Reports the examiner has to be done by one of the below.  Mine was done by a Licensed  Profession Counselor.  Is that cause for CUE?  The Dr. stepped in at the very beginning and said he was "mentoring" her, he again stepped in at the end and asked if I had questions.  That is all I saw of him.

board-certified or board-eligible psychiatrists

licensed doctorate-level psychologists, or

the following other mental health professionals, under the close supervision of a board-certified or board-eligible psychiatrist or licensed doctorate-level psychologist:

doctorate-level mental health providers

psychiatry residents, and

clinical or counseling psychologists completing a one-year internship or residency.

IMHO (IN MY HUMBLE OPINION), it would be an uphill battle, instead of trying to file a CUE claim, you may want to get a different medical opinion and either file a disagreement or supplemental with a different opinion. The reason I say this is based on your post. The VA can have just about any type of examiner complete an exam as long as there is a medical supervisor that also reviews and sign your medical exam.  Keep in mind that a lot of veterans do not understand what the VAMC stand for, it is Veterans Affairs Medical Center but in plain language it is a medical training facility that is supposed to train VA medical doctors. That is why they are supposed to ask veterans if the veteran would mind being seen by a student or when a veteran has an appointment, the veteran has to see two doctors, the first is a training student and the second is a qualified or certified medical doctor. I got tired of this years ago when a student doctor tried to change my medication that would have put me in the hospital.

My disabilities are chronic and static, I have been on so many different medications you would not believe. With that said, I know if I was put on a medication that did or did not work, I had an adverse reaction and there is no need to try something new. A student doctor tried to change my medication and argued with me that the new medication would help me, but I informed him that it would not help my situation because I had already tried the medication years ago and it put me in the hospital and if he would have read my records would know that my current medication was better. After I was treated by my regular doctor, I never saw this student doctor again. This would probably be the same as a contract examiner.

It states in your post:

the following other mental health professionals, under the close supervision of a board-certified or board-eligible psychiatrist or licensed doctorate-level psychologist: clinical or counseling psychologists completing a one-year internship or residency.

Others may chime in.

If we're me I would call the white house hotline an complaint about the exam.

And I would up load a statement that you feel the exam was inadequate.

If this is a new decision. Make sure you appeal the decision.

Good luck

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
