Veteran Compensation and Pension Evaluations

Dr. Sweeton conducts veteran compensation and pension evaluations (also known as service connection disability exams) for veterans, who may be referred through organizations such as QTC or VES, or who may self-refer. Dr. Sweeton has conducted hundreds of service connection disability evaluations for veterans, and is knowledgeable about the criteria the VBA uses in assessing veteran claims. For self-referring veterans, the costs for compensation and pension evaluations are as follows:

  • Mental Disorders DBQ and Nexus/IMO (Independent Medical Opinion): $1,200/report (this can include lifestyle impact claims, and includes the evaluation and all records reviews)

  • PTSD Review DBQ and Nexus/IMO (Independent Medical Opinion): $1,300/report (this can include lifestyle impact claims, and includes the evaluation and all records reviews)

  • TBI (traumatic brain injury review): $460/report as an add-on to one of the above, or $1,100 as a stand-alone assessment (includes the evaluation and all records reviews)

Compensation and pension evaluations can be completed in one session, and usually take between 50-80 minutes. While most veterans who complete these evaluations are located in Kansas or Oklahoma, Dr. Sweeton can conduct service connection disability evaluations for veterans living in other states as well. If you have questions about this or would like to schedule an evaluation, please contact Dr. Sweeton’s assistant at officeofdrsweeton@gmail.com, or call 913-648-2512, x700!
