As a Contributor, You Have the Ability to Drastically Improve Disabled Veterans’ Chances of Proving their Claims by Providing Access to an Unbiased Medical Opinion that Can Link the Veterans’ Disabling Conditions to their Active Military Service.
Thank you for your interest in Care For Disabled Veterans. Currently, many United States veterans applying for Veteran Disability Compensation are being denied because they are unable to afford independent medical examinations (IMEs). These exams can be a crucial part of proving their disability claims. Due to the increasing cost of private medical care, most veterans' sole source of healthcare is through VA clinics and hospitals. While VA healthcare can be a somewhat helpful service for many veterans; it can greatly limit the veterans' chances of successfully disputing their claims.
VA clinicians often provide limited or biased opinions on the causes of many conditions that veterans attempt to prove as being "service-connected". More often than not, these opinions result in a veteran's claim being unfairly denied. We believe that veterans should not be disadvantaged as a result of the biases that doctors within the VA healthcare system often portray.
Thankfully, there is a way to help! With your (or your facility's) contribution to provide disabled United States veterans with the chance of obtaining free or discounted, unbiased IMEs, you can give the hope back to the men and women that became disabled while serving our country. As a contributor, you have the ability to drastically improve disabled veterans' chances of proving their claims by providing access to an unbiased medical opinion that can link the veterans' disabling conditions to their active military service.
An offering of free or discounted IME services or a monetary donation can give veterans the tools they need to support their claims and be properly compensated for their conditions. Some doctors donate one exam monthly, others provide discounted exams, while others help to raise awareness so that other physicians in their community can get involved. In addition to helping a much needed cause we will promote participating doctors on our website and engage in link exchange.
The time is now that these disabled veterans need your help. Please contact Kenneth LaVan, Founder, at IMEs@CareForVets.org if you are interested in getting involved.
