Update 30 Nov – 12 DVA Claims found on Chart Review

Today we completed a Chart Review for a Veteran who booked in for a Permanent Impairment Assessment after initial assessment with an RSL Advocate.

He had 10 claims in, but it was a mix of Orthopaedic Conditions that seemed like it had missed some obvious claims – he had the less common ones in there but was missing some commonly linked and earlier conditions, or so it seemed to us.

A Chart Review of his UMR and JEHDI file revealed a likely additional 12 claims – 9 high yield ones, and 3 less impactful ,but still important to claim. 11 were covered by DVA SOPs and 1 claim needed a WHO ICD-10 reference to cover it.

We’re now working though the details of these claims with this Veteran.
