    Hi appleton6 Welcome to the Scope community. 
    With my assessment, after they canceled it once and refunded me the travel money it was just a case of getting there and answering their questions. All they ask is questions about your condition and how it affects you. It's easy because it just involves talking about yourself. I will say though bring someone with you to help you even if you don't need them so it looks good on your claim.
