Are you interested in putting your skills to work serving military veterans and help them receive their well-deserved Veterans Affairs (VA) disability benefits?
If so we would like to speak to you about performing compensation and pension examinations as a Vighter LLC employee in an outpatient clinic setting to support Americas heroes. These exams consist of an objective one-time non-treatment psychological assessment related to the veterans service-connected disability claims. Common reasons for disability claims include: PTSD, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. Assessments are scheduled during normal business hours (Monday-Friday).
A typical appointment consists of: (1) a review of the veterans disability claim (Disability Benefit Questionnaire) and medical history prior to the appointment, (2) utilization of the DBQ as a guide during the examination to gather clinical information from the veteran, and (3) electronic submission of the assessment results after completion.
The number of patients seen per day scheduled for each provider depends on the number and type of DBQs claimed by the veteran. The number of claims per veteran varies as does the time it takes to assess each claim. Time is provided for dictation between patients so as not to disrupt the flow of the patient interview during the assessment. Clinical findings then undergo a quality check before they are submitted electronically to the Government, which facilitates timely disability award determinations for the veteran.
