Modernizing and Improving the Disability and Compensation Systems
Date:11/8/2007

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On November 9, the Department of Veterans Affairs intends to solicit outside bids to be able to award one contract to conduct two important technical studies that will assist decisions to be made regarding the updating of our military disability system. The studies are part of the recommendations of the President's Commission on Care for America's Returning Wounded Warriors, co-chaired by former Sen. Bob Dole and former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala.

Study of Compensation Payments for Service Connected Disabilities

The Department of Veterans Affairs is commencing a study regarding creation of a schedule for rating disabilities based upon current concepts of medicine and disability, taking into account loss of quality of life and loss of earnings resulting from specific injuries or combination of injuries.

The study will examine:

-- The nature of injuries and combination of injuries for which disability compensation is payable under various disability programs of the Federal and State governments and other countries;

-- The extent to which quality of life and loss of earnings are independently taken into account in various disability programs of the Federal and State governments and other countries;

-- The effect of an injury or combination of injuries on a veteran's loss of earnings, such as inability to work in certain occupations, and on a veteran's quality of life, such as activities of independent living, recreational and community activities, and personal relationships, including the inability to participate in favorite activities, social problems related to disfigurement or cognitive difficulties, and the need to spend increased amounts of time performing activities of daily living; and

-- Measurement of the effect of an injury or combination of injuries on a veteran's psychological state, loss of physical integrity, and social inadaptability.'/>"/>
