It should have been 3 days but it took exactly 2 weeks.
My PEBLO said it takes 3 weeks. Where did you get 2 days? (Your QTC seems more forthcoming with information than mine is who keeps deferring to the VA as they smile at me.)

Work with your MSC and call QTC and ask them where your case is. Hound them if you have to but be polite. It’s your case and your life.

Yeah my QTC outright told me they cant tell me anything to contact the VA. Still curious where you got the 3 days from... was your QTC telling you you were nearly done before the snafoo happened?

Was that your local QTC or the main one? Call the 800 number and choose option 2 and give them your account number and just ask when your case should be sent to the VA. That is what I did. They said typically it’s 3 days to a week and depends on the Drs.

Yeah my doctor who did the examination said he was sending it to the VA that day. The VA told me today they havent seen it from QTC yet (2 weeks later)

So the question is does the PEBLO get the exams when the VA does, or does the VA get it and sift through it before giving it to the PEBLO?

QTC uploada the exams straight to the VA. Your MSC will then send a copy to your PEBLO. They will send you a copy and one to your provider. You should have yours by now. I would say call your MSC tomorrow and ask them if they contacted QTC

I called QTC HQ like you suggested and it worked. My general appointment is currently being audited with a 4-10 day expected completion time (even though it was done 24 Oct). So I'll be calling them Friday asking for another update. Thanks for the guidance.

Glad that they were able to give you an update. I hope that it gets done before Friday.

Called QTC today for an update and they said they finished it all up and sent to the VA today. How long till my VA rep on base can see them and subsequently my PEBLO has the results to show me?

Is there a way to see then myself? Myhealthvet bluebutton has been giving me a blank report

Call va rep tomorrow if you don’t hear from PEBLO. They should send it next day to them but sometime they lag on it.

Called VA regional first to confirm they had them and they did. Then called my MSC and he said he had them for download. So as soon as QTC says they delivered to VA, the MSC should have access. The MSC wont release them to me though, said the PEBLO has to request them and she can give them to me. My PEBLO said I have to get them from the MSC. So I asked her to call the MSC (3 doors down from her) and sort it out and to please let me get access by today. She said she would call by noon to let me know if she has it for me to get.

I hope for your sake that they can get you the results of the exams soon. It the responsibility of the PEBLO to get them to you and to your PCM.

I know that I shouldn't watch ebenefits due to how the timeline on there fluctuates a lot. However, I noticed yesterday it was at review of evidence and now today its at Under Review. like it went back 2 steps in the entire process. I am going to lose my mind on that site.... best for me to continue to avoid it.

I got the results back of my local board. Refer to IPEB. I signed my election to agree with local board results. Should sign my 618 tomorrow!
