I was referred to MEB for a single medical condition which is liver disease. During the VA claim process, I claimed anorexia as I am not able to eat because of loss of appetite. During my c&P exams with the BH provider, he diagnosed me with depression and anxiety and recommended that I should seek BH treatment.
can I open the new claim for depression and anxiety?
is the BH that conducted my exam going to complete the DBQ pertaining to anorexia or depression?

my last C&P exams was yesterday with gen med, she requested imaging for my knee which I did yesterday . Today I saw a missed call and the person did not leave a message. so I called back the number and it was the IDES clinic front desk. the lady on the phone said she could not identify the person who tried calling me. I asked to be transferred to my peblo which she did but I got a voicemail.
when do you usually receive a call after your last exams?
I know the next step after exams is the Narsum, how long does it take to get a narsum? do I have to review all DBQ before I get the narsum?
is there anything that might be urgent? I am worried because of the phone call I missed.

How permanent or temporary disability determined by the DOD and VA?
having a BH condition directly put you on a temporary list ? even if it is not the condition that brought you into the MEB?

FWIW, I received my NARSUM the Friday before Christmas, and the deadline to respond passed without even being scheduled for my final two C&P exams. I missed the 5-day deadline, because no one was available for two weeks. Once re-engaged, my PEBLO said that I still needed to sign and return, because the conditions that I hadn't yet been evaluated for are not the DoD-referred conditions, but I would not receive my final DoD rating until after VA rates.

Perhaps you are in a similar position in which the DoD-relevant exams are complete so the process is moving forward even before those final exams are complete?

I received a call today and that was my GEN MED physician requesting me to go to radiology and get a CT Scan done ASAP. The CT SCAN in my medical record was done in june 2018 and she wants a new one.
