VA Simplifies Access to Health Care and Benefits for Veterans with PTSD
July 12, 2010

WASHINGTON – Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki announced a critical step forward in providing an easier process for Veterans seeking health care and disability compensation for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), with the publication of a final regulation in the Federal Register.

“This nation has a solemn obligation to the men and women who have honorably served this country and suffer from the often devastating emotional wounds of war,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “This final regulation goes a long way to ensure that Veterans receive the benefits and services they need.”

By publishing a final regulation in the Federal Register to simplify the process for a Veteran to claim service connection for PTSD, VA reduces the evidence needed if the trauma claimed by a Veteran is related to fear of hostile military or terrorist activity and is consistent with the places, types, and circumstances of the Veteran’s service.

This science-based regulation relies on evidence that concluded that a Veteran’s deployment to a war zone is linked to an increased risk of PTSD.

Under the new rule, VA would not require corroboration of a stressor related to fear of hostile military or terrorist activity if a VA doctor confirms that the stressful experience recalled by a Veteran adequately supports a diagnosis of PTSD and the Veteran's symptoms are related to the claimed stressor.

Previously, claims adjudicators were required to corroborate that a non-combat Veteran actually experienced a stressor related to hostile military activity. This final rule simplifies the development that is required for these cases.

VA expects this rulemaking to decrease the time it takes VA to decide access to care and claims falling under the revised criteria. More than 400,000 Veterans currently receiving compensation benefits are service connected for PTSD. Combined with VA’s shorter claims form, VA’s new streamlined, science-based regulation allows for faster and more accurate decisions that also expedite access to medical care and other benefits for Veterans.

PTSD is a medically recognized anxiety disorder that can develop from seeing or experiencing an event that involves actual or threatened death or serious injury to which a person responds with intense fear, helplessness or horror, and is not uncommon among war Veterans.

Disability compensation is a tax-free benefit paid to a Veteran for disabilities that are a result of -- or made worse by -- injuries or diseases associated with active service.

For additional information, go to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or call VA’s toll free benefits number at 1-800-827-1000.

Can you believe that this kind of garbage goes on and how our tax dollars are being spent. PTSD has been a given since WW1, but now, in it's infinite wisdom our government actually says something like this. Who's watching our money?

Maybe I missed something. It looks like this is a good move for our vets.
What did I miss? Not being sarcastic. You obviously don't like something with this and I want to know because I am obviously missing something.

PB,
Your comment is pretty much what they're looking for from the public. It's a PR thing, designed to make it appear that BO has done something wonderful for our vets. The general public has no idea what has already occurred within the VA system. What hacks me off is that this isn't new at all. Any Veteran that has had any experience dealing with the VA would react as I have. My medical profile with the VA has included PTSD since 1969 when a Dr. interviewed me and determined that I had it. So if you read this article it describes the very same thing as something "new", horse puckey!!
It offends me that BO wants to take credit for something that he's had nothing to do with. It's the 5th paragraph down that contains what I'm reacting to.
He's using Vets to try to polish his image.

I apologize now for the rant but, I couldn't help myself.

Obama is nothing more than a polished turd any way.
He blames all his failures, which are many, on Bush.
And takes credit for other peoples work, as you said when he had nothing to do with it.

I started a new word association game, go there and pick your words to vent.

LOL polished turd.
Haven't heard that in a long time. But I have to agree.
I think I'd rather have Mr Hanky in office than the fly drawing cretin we have now.

That is exactly what he has done from the beginning! I for one believe that is all the man knows how to do. If we don't get rid of him at the earliest opportunity we stand to loose more than we ever dreamed of! JMHO.

And I think your humble opinion is correct. Look at how much we have lost already.

Thats what November is about. In November we are going to vote all these ass holes out and bring the USA back to the light side.
We as a country have had enough of our law makers ignoring the laws, or making laws for us that don't apply to them.
And worst, the way they shit on the Constitution.

Totally agree. I am a strict Constitutionalist and believe the document speaks for itself. Read it and interpret it for what it says, not what you think it has evolved into that suits your purpose! By God!
