VA Picks 3 Firms for $6.8B Medical Disability Exam Support Program

medical health doctorThe Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded three companies positions on a potential five-year, $6.8 billion contract vehicle to process medical exam reports in order to help facilitate the delivery of disability claims benefits to retired service personnel.

The VA said Tuesday it awarded 12 contracts to VetFed Resources, Veterans Evaluation Services and QTC Medical Services through the Medical Disability Examination Program in support of the MyVA initiative.

Contracts awarded under the vehicle cover work for one base year and up to four option years.

“The goal will be to reduce the veteran’s wait times for examinations as much as possible thereby providing faster claims decisions and enhancing veterans’ experience in a positive way, ” said Tom Murphy, acting principal deputy undersecretary for benefits at the VA.

The Medical Disability Examination Program seeks to consolidate medical examinations contracts into a single contract vehicle that is managed by a central management team with representatives from both the Veterans Health Administration and the Veterans Benefits Administration.

A VA strategic acquisition center in Frederick, Maryland will oversee the enterprisewide contract.
