Valor 4 Vet serves as a professional consulting service associated with the medical information, medical documentation, and laws governing veteran disability claims. Valor 4 Vet does not provide medical treatment services and Valor 4 Vet is not actively practicing medicine, providing treatment, medical recommendations, or prescribing medications.
Valor 4 Vet does not guarantee a service connection, a reversal of an appeal, or disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”), Veterans Benefit Administration (“VBA”), or any other entity. The Services are based solely on the medical education, legal training, training in disability and compensation through the Veterans Administration, and Valor 4 Vet’s experience working directly with the VA in processing claims.
The role of Valor 4 Vet at all times is to serve as a consultant using materials provided by the Client (medical records) to deliver services.
The time frame for completion will vary dependent upon company workload.
The main form of communication will be through email in order to expedite services.
A Record Review is required before a request for a Medical Opinion/Nexus letter is accepted. An upfront fee will be collected at the time services are selected. This fee is used to cover the Medical Expert’s time in reviewing the record to make see if there is enough medical evidence to meet the legal requirements for a nexus.
If there is enough medical evidence to meet the legal requirement for a service connection, then the Medical Expert will accept the case to write the nexus.
Valor 4 Vet is not liable for missed benefits deadlines associated with your VA claim for benefits. It is the veteran’s/representative’s responsibility to work with the benefits department associated with your claim. It is recommended that if a deadline to submit a document is approaching, that you do not wait for completion of services by Valor 4 Vet but you note to the VA that you have additional evidence pending. This is recommended because the timelines for completion for services at Valor 4 Vet will vary based on the company work load.
At any time should the Client fail to make any payment owed under any agreement with Valor 4 Vet, Valor 4 Vet has the right to suspend all Medical Professional work in connection with the Services and shall not be held responsible for any liability, damages, or claims as a result of non-payment.

Ordering a Record Review
After this form is submitted, additional records added to the file will likley not be reviewed.
If you have not completed a personal statment at this stage in the game, you are setting your claim up for failure.
A personal statement does NOT mean that you are trying to explain the medical side of things.
It means that you are testifying to the symptoms you have experienced and have provided specific examples in your life about the symptoms.
Help us help you. Often times we receive very little medical records that pertain to the medical condition the veteran wishes to claim. This costs more to you as the client and takes more time for the Medical Experts.
DO NOT SEND LESS THAN 50 PAGES OF RECORDS AND ASSUME A MEDICAL EXPERT CAN MAKE A SOLID DETERMINATION ON YOUR CONDITION RELATED TO SERVICE.
Here are general rules to follow to get the most out of your record review:
1. Have a diagnosis for the medical condition you wish to claim.
“Back Pain” as a diagnosis is not helpful in writing a Nexus report because this doesn’t tell the Medical Expert what condition you are suffering from in order to connect the dots. Occasionally, xrays will provide some insight.
The general rule: provide medical records with a diagnosis from a visit that occurred within the last 2 years. If you do not have these records, visit your medical provider to establish the diagnosis and request the records one week after your visit.
2. If there is a gap of 5 or more years in medical records, provide a personal statement about the medical condition you wish to claim.
One personal statement for one medical condition. Personal statements can be completed here.
3. Provide your most recent VA decision letter.
This letter contains information about why you were denied as well as the service information the VA has on file for you.
4. Know When to Wait:
If you have special testing pending such as a CAT scan or MRI for the medical condition you wish to claim, wait. These tests provide wonderful information to the Medical Experts in understanding your medical condition.
If you are seeing a specialist for the first time, wait. Specialists often narrow the clinical picture when things are in question. The first time you see a specialist they may order additional testing that is helpful in understanding your medical condition.
I have submitted all medical records pertaining to the record review request. I am not withholding records which may skew the medical experts opinion. I understand that if I withhold medical records that services provided by Valor 4 Vet will not be of value as evidence to the VA.
