Disability Evaluation

Disability Assessment contains activities related to a VBA Request for Physical Examination, to include record tracking and reporting data for service-connected compensation or non-service-connected pension benefits requests. Data includes examination results to provide sufficient medical evidence to decide a claim and to determine whether a current diagnosed disability is related to an event, injury, or disease incurred while in military service. The data encompasses the examination lifecycle from development of request by VBA staff, notification of exam request to scheduling the exam(s), transcribing the results, and forwarding the results to VA Regional offices (RO). Results data for disability evaluations becomes part of the health record documentation for the veteran at the VA facility. Data is used by Regional Offices in the adjudication of benefits and by local facilities for monitoring timeliness and examination quality.
