PEB Forum Veteran
I could not disagree more with this decision. While firms profiteering from DBQs in an unethical manner should be address, this decision negatively effects veterans than use private physicians. A private physician does not know the intricacies of a VA rating. By not providing a key piece of medical data on the DBQ a Veteran might be underrated or not rated at all. This move by the VA punishes reputable veterans and private providers. In an era of Decision Ready Claims - this is a huge step backward.
