Episode 26: Compensation and Pension (C&P) Exams for PTSD
C&P exams are medical exams ordered by VA to evaluate the conditions that a veteran is claiming for disability compensation. These exams are meant to assess the etiology and/or severity of a veteran’s condition and are part of VA’s duty to assist veterans in obtaining evidence to support their disability claims. During a C&P exam for PTSD, the medical examiner will likely complete a Disability Benefits Questionnaire (DBQ), use criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V) to establish a diagnosis, and address the veteran’s level of occupational and social impairment. To learn more about what to expect during a C&P exam for PTSD and how to challenge any unfavorable results, join CCK during this episode of the Veterans Legal Lowdown.
