What is Veterans Assisting Veterans?
Veterans Assisting Veterans is a network of licensed medical providers. Providers within the group share a common goal, which is to help Veterans obtain the benefits they deserve.
Can you guarantee I will get an increase?
No. The Veterans Affairs makes the ruling decision on all claims submitted. If your disabilities warrant an increase and your DBQ’s are completed correctly, you have a high probability of success. Veterans Assisting Veterans does not make any promises or guarantees.
Do you offer financing or payment plans?
Yes. Part of our mission is to help as many Veterans as possible obtain the benefits that they deserve. Please contact us for details.
Does Veterans Assisting Veterans charge for this service?
Yes. Veterans Assisting Veterans, LLC is a licensed medical group. We do charge a fee, similar to fees charged by private healthcare providers. However, we do offer Veterans a FREE no-obligation consultation.
Do you offer a refund if I am not awarded an increase?
Yes. A portion of our service fee is refundable if you do not receive a successful decision on your claim. Some fees are non-refundable due to State Medical Board guidelines. Please contact us for more details regarding our refund policy.
Can I use a VSO to submit my claim?
Yes. Veterans Assisting Veterans can only assist with the Disability Benefit Questionnaire and medical evaluations. Veterans are required to submit their own claims. This can be done via a Veteran Service Organization, mailing your claim to the VA, or filing electronically on the eBenefits website.
How does Veterans Assisting Veterans differ from a VA Appointed doctor?
Veterans Assisting Veterans is not affiliated with the Veterans Administration. Our medical group is comprised of independent licensed medical providers who understand the claims process. VA appointed medical providers are contracted by the Veterans Administration. In most cases, they are overloaded with patients and do not give the proper attention to each claim. A large majority of Veterans who see VA appointed doctors when filing their claim are unsatisfied with the results. Thus, resulting in years of refiling and/or a lengthy appeal process.
Can I use your services if I have an open appeal?
No. If you have an open appeal, you must wait until a decision has been made on your claim.
Can you help if I am working with an accredited agent or attorney?
Yes. We work with many accredited agents and attorneys. All Disability Benefit Questionnaires must be completed and signed by a licensed medical provider. Accredited agents and attorneys cannot give medical advice or sign DBQ’s.
How does Veterans Assisting Veterans differ from my primary care physician?
You have the right to choose whatever licensed medical provider you would like. Our licensed medical providers know the VA disability claim process and understand how to complete Disability Benefits Questionnaires. Most primary care physicians do not have the knowledge to complete a DBQ correctly.

Disclaimer: Results are not guaranteed and Veterans Assisting Veterans makes no promises. Veterans Assisting Veterans staff does not provide medical advice. Any information discussed such as, but not limited to; likely chance of an increase, estimated benefit amounts, potential new ratings prior to a doctor reviewing patient’s file, is solely based on past client generalizations and not specific to any one patient. The doctor has the right to reject and/or refuse to complete a Veteran’s DBQ if he/she feels the Veteran is not being truthful. The Veteran’s Administration is the only one that can make a determination, in regards to whether or not a Veteran will receive an increase in their service-connected disabilities. A refund of sorts will be offered (medical fees are non-refundable, in accordance with State governing medical board).
