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: $420/report (this can include lifestyle impact claims)

  • PTSD DBQ: $470/report

  • IMO (independent medical opinion) and records reviews: $200/hour, billed by the half hour

  • TBI (traumatic brain injury review): $400/report

Compensation and pension evaluations can be completed in one in-person or video teleconferencing session, and usually take between 45 minutes and 1.25 hours. Same week appointments are usually available! 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, depending on the licensing regulations of the state in question. If you have questions about this or would like to schedule an evaluation, please contact Dr. Sweeton at, or call 913-648-2512, x700!
