What is MOPP?
MOPP is a tool used by Medical Professionals to assist in writing a VA medical opinion for a veteran’s disability claim.
MOPP outlines VA law as the Medical Professional writes their medical opinion and provides guidance along the way so that the Medical Professional does not feel lost or confused.
Why Should I Use MOPP?
The VA prefers that the veteran’s own treating provider provides their input for a disability claim. However, there has always been a lack of understanding in VA law for a Medical Professional to support their veteran, until now.
MOPP guides the Medical Professional in the writing process. References are made to specific VA law so that the Medical Professional can lean on understanding of the law as they write.
Why Was MOPP Created?
There has often been a disconnect between VA law and medical professionals on the outside of the VA world. Often, Medical Professionals would try to help the veteran but used the wrong language that doesn’t apply to VA law.
Now, with MOPP, a Medical Professional can write a medical opinion to the VA for their patient/veteran with confidence that the VA will use their medical opinion with probative value.
Is MOPP a Part of the VA?
No. MOPP is a tool that was developed by a private company in order to meet the needs of the veteran community.
