I received a letter with the date of my C&P exams. 3 in total. They are using an outside provider, QTC, not directly with the VA. The letter states that I can not take any documents with me. I am concerned because
1) the VA has lost all of my military health records. How is the Dr. supposed to state “It is as likely as not related to XYZ from time in service” if they can’t see anything.
2) They haven’t been able to provide me with any of my 1999 discharge information from all of my original claims.
3) I don’t know how I am going to prove my service connection.
My first C&P is next Thursday. Is there any thing I can write up about my time in service and upload to the VA site with my claim that will help during the exams? And truthfully, I am not 100% sure that they have lost my records. I just know that when I requested my C-file they only sent me stuff from my current claim date of 2018 and the stuff from 2008 when I started going to the VA. I retired in 1999. I called and asked that my request for records be opened back up because that hadn’t fulfilled it. They were RUDE and said they would write up a note and give it to a supervisor who would look in to it but they were pretty sure that since I had asked for the C-file what I got was everything they had. I’m also wondering why they would move my claim along in the process if they don’t have my military medical records. That is another reason I think they may have them and just didn’t send them to me.
thanks for your help
