Compensation and Pension (C&P) exams are medical exams ordered by VA to evaluate the conditions that a veteran is claiming for disability compensation. In a mental health C&P exam, the medical examiner will typically ask the veteran questions about how their condition affects their daily life. The examiner will also address the veteran’s level of social and occupational impairment. Join the CCK team as they break down the details of what a C&P examiner evaluates, VA’s mental health rating formula, and tips for attending mental health C&P exams.
