Major Problems with VA C&P Exams during COVID19
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, many VA providers have been tasked with performing C&P exams by telemedicine. However, they currently have no way of performing objective assessments by telemedicine- i.e., range of motion in your joints, length of scars, etc. So, they are merely writing “unable to perform due to COVID19” for any exams requiring objective findings. What will this mean for you? For any rating codes requiring objective measurements or testing, I believe that you will need to find outside providers to perform these exams to maximize your odds of a decent outcome.
