A Mental Health Record Review is designated for our psychologists and is a separate review from the Basic Record Review. A staff psychologist will review the records made available to them to see if you may qualify for a service connection, or if the psychologist deems there is enough evidence to complete a DBQ for your desired mental health condition.
This does not include medical conditions.
Once the Mental Health Record Review is completed, the psychologist will determine if there is enough evidence for your case and will accept the case. You will then be scheduled for a video interview/examination and online mental health testing may also be required.
Mental Health Examinations require a computer camera with audio and microphone or a smart phone.
Active Duty / Discharged in the Last 12 Months Record Review
This type of record review is focused on finding benefits for those who are active duty and about to discharge or retire from service and those who have been discharged within the last 12 months. This is a critical time to build medical evidence.
We feel you should go in prepared with what you are entitled to and what needs to have more medical evidence for a legal claim. This type of medical record review breaks down the evidence you have to support a legal claim for benefits and may suggest action to build your claim.
A lot of service members believe that if you get injured any time during service you are automatically entitled to a disability and that is not the case.
This review does not provide a disability percentage rating because a face to face examination is required to provide that type of determination.
