VA C&P Exams by Video Call- An Accident Waiting to Happen?
Faced with a mounting backlog of Compensation and Pension (“C&P”) exams in IDES cases, the VA has decided to conduct as many of these exams as possible via a videoconference call. This bizarre development has caught both VA examiners and the PEB system off-guard, with no one knowing how to conduct objective physical exams by videoconference calls effectively. After all, a lousy wi-fi connection may result in a significant misunderstanding between you and the C&P examiner. If you are one of my clients, we will work together to obtain the objective data necessary to support your claim. When the C&P exams are complete, we will review the results together and address any errors quickly on a VA Form 21-4138 and in a rebuttal to your medical board. Not to worry, I will draft these documents for you to ensure that all legal and evidentiary issues are addressed. Working together, we can offset any inaccurate or inadequate VA C&P exams
