Job Description:

Are you interested in putting your skills to work serving military veterans and help them receive their well-deserved Veterans Affairs (VA) disability benefits? If so we would like to speak to you about performing compensation and pension examinations as a Vighter employee in an outpatient clinic setting to support Americas heroes. These exams consist of an objective one-time non-treatment psychological assessment related to the veterans service-connected disability claims. Common reasons for disability claims include: PTSD, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. Assessments are scheduled during normal business hours (Monday Friday), but work on the weekends may be available. A typical appointment consists of: (1) a review of the veterans disability claim (Disability Benefit Questionnaire) and medical history prior to the appointment, (2) utilization of the DBQ as a guide during the examination to gather clinical information from the veteran, and (3) electronic submission of the assessment results after completion. The number of patients seen per day scheduled for each provider depends on the number and type of DBQs claimed by the veteran. The number of claims per veteran varies as does the time it takes to assess each claim. Time is provided for dictation between patients so as not to disrupt the flow of the patient interview during the assessment. Clinical findings then undergo a quality check before they are submitted electronically to the Government, which facilitates timely disability award determinations for the veteran. COMPANY: Vighter is a physician-led firm accredited by The Joint Commission and is verified as a service-disabled veteran-owned business by the VA. Since 2005 our company has provided healthcare services on challenging programs in support our Federal government clients. Our healthcare staff have performed Search and Rescue operations in Africa as well as Asia, assisted with the Ebola response effort, supported ICE with in-flight emergency medical services, conducted physical examinations for veterans seeking disability determinations, and many other missions.
