Evaluation of the disability determination process for traumatic brain injury in veterans / Committee on the Review of the Department of Veterans Affairs Examinations for Traumatic Brain Injury, Board on Health Care Services, Health and Medicine Division, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) provides disability compensation to veterans with a service-connected injury, and to receive disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), a veteran must submit a claim or have a claim submitted on his or her behalf. Evaluation of the Disability Determination Process for Traumatic Brain Injury in Veterans reviews the process by which the VA assesses impairments resulting from traumatic brain injury for purposes of awarding disability compensation. This report also provides recommendations for legislative or administrative action for improving the adjudication of veterans' claims seeking entitlement to compensation for all impairments arising from a traumatic brain injury.
