A Federal court has upheld contract awards made by the U.S. Department
of Veterans Affairs (VA) to Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI) to provide medical
exams for Veterans and separating Service members seeking disability benefits
for service-connected health issues.
The Court of Federal Claims rejected protests to the
initial LHI awards to provide the exams through the Veterans Benefits
Administration (VBA) Medical Disability Examinations (MDE) program.
Under the contracts,
LHI will assist the VA by providing medical disability examinations to Veterans
in 41 states. The overall VA contract for these services in all areas covered
under the program is valued at $6.8 billion. The contract is shared by
several vendors and includes a one-year base period plus four option years. LHI
has been supporting the VA since 2011 through the Veterans Health
Administration’s Disability Exam Management program.
“LHI is deeply honored to be entrusted with the care of our
nation’s heroes and helping them receive the benefits they’ve earned through
their service to our country,” said LHI Chairman and Founder Don Weber.
LHI invites qualified practitioners to join in its mission
as it expands its national care provider network.
“We’re looking for practitioners who are experienced at
performing compensation and pension exams,” explained Brian Hafner, LHI Chief
Operations Officer. “This is a great opportunity for health care providers to
expand their practice and give back to those who have served us.”
