Frequently Asked Questions

What is Valor 4 Vet?

Valor 4 Vet specializes in providing essential support for veterans navigating disability claims with the Veterans Benefits Administration. We are a dedicated team of Medical Experts focused on preparing reports that establish a connection between a veteran’s service and their disability.

Our expertise lies in crafting Medical Opinions and conducting Disability Exams, offering veterans the necessary medical evidence to substantiate their claims. Our role is to ensure that each veteran’s claim is supported by thorough and professional medical documentation, helping to streamline their journey towards claim approval.

Our president at Valor 4 Vet is accredited by the VA, and we leverage this accreditation to deeply understand the legal nuances as they apply to medical expert work in veteran disability claims.

While we do not provide legal advice or representation, nor do we offer medical treatment advice, our focus is on using our accredited expertise to create precise and fair medical reports for veterans. This ensures that every claim we support is backed by thorough and legally-informed medical documentation, without any claim on your back pay.

What Valor 4 Vet is NOT?

Valor 4 Vet focuses exclusively on assisting with veteran disability claims, but it’s important to understand our limitations:

      • We do not offer legal advice or act as legal representatives.
      • Our services do not include providing medical advice for treating diseases.
      • We maintain an objective stance in our assessments; our commitment is to accuracy and fairness, not just agreement.
      • We do not claim any portion of your back pay as part of our services.

Our goal is to provide specialized support in the medical aspect of your disability claim, ensuring you have the expert evidence needed for your application.

What is a Nexus Letter?

A Nexus Letter, also known as a Medical Opinion, is a critical document authored by our team of qualified Medical Experts, including PAs, NPs, MDs, DOs, Psychologists with Ph.D./Psy.D., or an Audiologist. This letter is instrumental in clarifying the connection between a veteran’s disability and their military service for the VA.

Our process at Valor 4 Vet begins with a Record Review, where our Medical Experts examine the veteran’s medical records and history.

Our diverse team, encompassing audiologists, podiatrists, psychologists, and general medical providers, specializes in crafting these Nexus Letters, each finalized with a doctor’s signature for authenticity. Learn more about Nexus Letters and their significance here.

What Records Do I Need Before I Get Started with Valor 4 Vet?

It’s crucial to start off on the right foot.

Please refer to our detailed CHECKLIST for the essential documents our Medical Experts require.

FOLLOW THE CHECKLIST CAREFULLY.

Skipping this step could lead to unnecessary costs. If our Medical Expert reviews your provided documents and finds that you haven’t supplied what’s listed on the checklist, you’ll need to compensate for their time to review your file again.

To avoid additional fees, please ensure all necessary documents are provided from the start.

What Happens After the Nexus Letter is Complete?

Once the Nexus Letter is drafted, we forward it for the veteran’s or their representative’s approval. After receiving the approval, our Medical Expert signs the document, which is then digitally delivered to the veteran’s folder. The report is available for digital download.

While we do not file reports with the VA as we are not your representative, we retain a copy should the VA require an original. For legal advice regarding your claim, we recommend consulting with an accredited veteran service officer or an attorney.
