Can anyone clarify why the DOD/PEB are able to have different percentages than the VA for the same condition? I thought the DOD/PEB had to use the VASRD or just carry the VA rating over to the case?
It's not binding if the exam was older than six months they can come up with a different decision or order their own exam, anytime you're dealing with different agencies with their own budgets they tend to still want to retain control over their decisions no matter how identical another agency decision or action was.
If you have an exam that recent you have to push it but last minute they decided to still have me go to one it wasn't a big deal I still got the outcome I wanted. Not sure whats driving them to use the VA exams in certain cases and not others.
