Its so important to be prepared for your compensation and pension exams! The outcome of this exam will impact your veterans benefits so being prepared is the best course of action. You need to understand your VA disability and more importantly how the Veterans Benefits Administration views your specific disability for rating purposes. Look into CFR, Title 38, Part 4, Schedule for rating disabilities and look into the law and study up on your disability and symptoms so you know what the VA is looking for. You should be familiar with all of your relevant medical records because this is that the compensation and pension examiner is looking at before your exam even starts.

A compensation and pension exam for mental health will be conducted by a psychologist or psychiatrist. It is important for you to understand what kind of examiner you are going to see so you know how to prepare. There are no range of motion tests for tinnitus or mental health so you do not need to check your own range of motion.
