  • Your ideal goal is to be seen at least twice a month. In this case, if the local VA is backed up regarding appointments, is there a local veterans center where you can see a counselor in order to show that you are actively seeking therapy? If so, please do so. The moderators gave good generic advice, but IPEB members will expect to see consistent treatment records with no breaks in treatment, few cancellations, and that you fill your prescriptions as directed.

    What if you have a civilian psychiatrist that does not keep detailed records? I prefer having a private psychiatrist, I don’t trust the VA, but I know they keep better records at the VA than my private Dr does

    Then you ask your psychiatrist to draft a summary of care letter that describes how long have you been under his/her care, the frequency of your appointments, your medication regimen, your diagnoses, your prognoses, and whether your condition is medically stable. There are some who will be willing to complete a DBQ form, but you may have to py them for their time as they will not be reimbursed for that time through Tricare.
