Hearing C&p Exam Question
Posted 04 October 2010 - 10:37 PM
I had my exam done with a civilian and she had access to all of my VA hearing test and evaluations and the test went as expected. Once the test was done she took the time to explain some things to me and this is where I got lost. She explained that they test the hearing in hrz levels and that people with hearing loss from combat related issues have the greatest loss between the 4000 and 6000 hrz range. Then she said that the VA has a formula for figuring out compensation and for the compensation they only look at the hearing loss up to the 4000 range. They test through the 6000 range but only look up to the 4000 when figuring the compensation rate.
My biggest loss is in the 4000 to 6000 range -- yes the range she says that does not factor into the overall compensation part of things. I guess my question is how do I get a fair compensation rating if they don't look at all the data? The exam was thorough, she was nice and did her best to explain things but it seems like she was nicely telling me that the VA was going to shaft me -- Please help !!!!
