Episode Description

Is pursuing a private mental health evaluation something that would benefit you when pursuing a VA service-connected disability? Today, Robin speaks with one of Vet Comp and Pen’s mental health specialist, Lucas, about what a private mental health evaluation would entail and who would benefit from this evaluation.

Every Veteran case is different. Some Veterans may be a better fit for a private exam than others. Before you request a private exam, you should ask yourself a few simple questions:

• Have you been denied a mental health disability after a C&P exam?

• Is your mental health prohibiting you from living your day-to-day life?

• Have you been diagnosed with a mental health condition while on active duty

and have not been able to receive VA benefits?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might benefit from a private mental health evaluation.
