Veterans Benefits Administration Medical Disability Examinations

A commitment to those who have served.

Under the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) Medical Disability Examinations (MDE) contract, LHI assists the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in providing quality compensation and pension examinations to Veterans and separating Service members seeking benefits for service-connected health issues. Clinical findings from the examinations are delivered to the Government to facilitate timely disability award determinations. LHI has worked with the VA for more than eight years and we have a complete understanding of their needs, as well as the needs of our Veterans.

Examinations begin with a review of the Veteran’s medical history, as well as the Veteran’s self-reported current state of health prior to the appointment. This material, paired with the Veteran’s responses collected during the exam, guides the provider through the exam questionnaire. Once the exam is complete, the results are uploaded directly to the VBA for final processing and inclusion in the Veteran’s record.

LHI serves Veterans in LHI facilities, independent network provider locations or via our mobile medical units, making it possible for us to serve Veterans close to home. We’re constantly looking for new ways to bring our services to Veterans wherever they reside.

State-of-the-art technology

LHI’s providers use an interactive examination tool via our secure online portal which ensures a complete and quality exam report. Additionally, LHI.Care is an online portal for Veterans to quickly and easily verify their information, provide availability and view upcoming appointment details on the device of their choice.

  • NIST-certified
  • MedNet, our customized workflow and data management platform, electronically and securely transfers exam results to VA.
