@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset.

And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

My last C&P Exam kind of thru me off base when I got a copy of it. Since when did they start using this type of exam report? The questions were based on my disability and were already written, and all the exam Dr had to do was check the appropriate boxes. That's fine and dandy I guess, but my question is, if there is a different report that has the examiners opinions that's stated directly by him/her, or is this all we have to go with?

What you saw was the new DBQ questionaire that they will be using in the future. They had them all listed on the VA website at one time. They have since pulled all of them except three of them. They can be used for IMOs when they are all done with the finalizing the rules. They want to put in a safety check to keep out the fraud of the system. If you need some let me know I downloaded alot of them before they pulled them.I think the three they kept was the AO main ones.I like the way they look,the hard part is findind someone to sign them.Only the C&P Drs at my VAMC are authorized to fill them out. But they are all anti vet disability claims from what I've seen.31Mike20

Disability Benefits Questionnaires


Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinicians will complete Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQs) for compensation and pension examinations scheduled by VA. As always, VHA and VA-contracted clinicians conduct compensation and pension examinations at no cost. However, Veterans or Service members also have the option, at their own cost, to have their private physicians complete DBQs to provide medical evidence on disability benefit claims.



Who is qualified to complete Disability Benefits Questionnaires?

A private physician with an active medical license is qualified to sign and attest to completed DBQs. The physician must have sufficient medical expertise to conduct a medical assessment regarding the type of DBQ completed.


How are completed Disability Benefits Questionnaires submitted to VA?

Physicians may mail or securely fax completed DBQs to the VA regional office handling the Veteran’s or Service member's claim. The Veteran or Service member may also submit completed DBQs directly to the VA regional office in support of their claim, including a Fully Developed Claim, which is an expedited process for a swift decision where the Veteran has provided all relevant evidence to “fully develop” the claim (for more information, see http://www.vba.va.gov/fastclaims). Visit our facilities page at http://www.va.gov/directory/guide/division_flsh.asp?dnum=3 or call 1-800-827-1000 for the addresses of VA’s regional offices.


Will VA pay for a Disability Benefits Questionnaire completed by a private physician?

No. VA cannot pay for a private physician to complete Disability Benefits Questionnaires or for any costs associated with examination or testing. VA will continue to provide disability examinations at VHA or VA-contracted facilities free of charge as part of its mission to assist Veterans and Service Members with their claims.


Notice: The 48 additional Disability Benefits Questionnaires that were previously available have been removed. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope to have them available again soon.

I don't know about you folks, but after reading the copy of my DBQ exam report, there's going to be alot of questions that's going to have to be answered by the VAMC! To try and make thing's easier to follow what I'm talking about, I was going to scan my DBQ with this post but there are to many pages involved, so I'll just try and keep it short and easy. I'll use mine for an example. This report is based on and written specifically for, "Knee and Lower Leg Conditions". This exam is for an increase of Compensation relating to the residuals effecting my Total Knee Replacement in 08.
It's a fairly easy and simple Questionnaire to fill out, but without any information as to; Do I complete all questions, even the ones that pertained to me in the past, but not now. For example, one question asked; Does the Veteran now have or has he or she ever had a meniscus (semilunar cartilage) condition? My answer would be yes. Then it asked, if the answer is yes, indicate severity and frequency of symptoms. OK, now I'm thinking maybe these 2 questions should be left blank because I've had surgery (TKR) since then, and the fact, my situation is totally different now. You folks understand what I'm saying? Then, the very next question asked; Has the Veteran had a total knee replacement So now my thoughts are the first 2 questions were only if they pertain to the present.
There are I think 2 or 3 more questions alike.
I hope this example was simple and easy enough to understand what the problem here is. I'm sure the other disability DBQs have the same circumstances.
Also, the Veterans private Dr that fill's these DBQs out might run into the situation too.
Just another note, I hope those first 2 questions are non-essential to my claim, because the examiner checked no on them. He must not of reviewed my c-file. Any comments will surely be helpfull.

I can't answer your questions, but if it was me I'd give your questions to your Dr. and he might know the correct answers. He/she might understand the secret code to what the VA is talking about. Unfortunately knees are above my pay grade, I'm only qualified to do Brain Salad Surgery!! 31mike20
