APDA Memo on Diagnostic Variance between MEB and VA

APDA Memo on Diagnostic Variance between MEB and VA 1.0

No permission to download
The attached file is an APDA memorandum for PEB Presidents on what happens when the MEB and the VA disagree with a diagnosis.

Note that per ANNEX O (MEB Phase Implementation Guidance) to OPORD 12-31 (MEDCOM IMPLEMENTATION of the INTEGRATED DISABILITY EVALUATION SYSTEM),


"(8) [CHANGE] No Diagnostic Variance Memorandums (DVMs) will be written. The MEB provider discusses each diagnosis from the VA C&P examination in the NARSUM and includes each diagnosis on the DA 3947. Diagnoses from the VA C&P examination without supporting medical documentation will first be clarified from the VA C&P examiners (as per paragraph 6.d.(5)). The MEB provider indicates "no medical basis" for VA C&P examination diagnoses for which the VA provided no medical basis (and for which none appears in the record). No additional clinical diagnostic re-evaluation is conducted by the MEB provider. The diagnosis will still be included in the NARSUM and included on the DA 3947 with the statement "no medical basis.""
