Share Article

DOMA and the VA have partnered on a pilot project to reduce the time for disability claim adjudication. This pilot project was recently highlighted as part of NPR story on claims backlog.

We believe this pilot is an important part of the VA's overall strategy to support veterans

In a story aired by National Public Radio (NPR) on April 8th the Department of Veterans Affairs projects to speed up the process for adjudicating the disability claims for veterans were highlighted. This includes the DOMA-VBA Pilot Project currently underway.

“This story brings much needed attention to the challenges faced by disabled veterans in getting their claims for disability allowances adjudicated. DOMA is proud to be working with the VBA on the pilot project to speed up the time taken for a veteran to receive adjudication of his or her claim,” comments Wayne DeAtley, DOMA Senior Vice President.

DOMA’s pilot project, awarded in October, 2010 is focused on retrieving health records for veterans from third party healthcare providers. Prior to the pilot launch this would take in excess of 40 days on average for the VBA to retrieve the records and create the complete health record required for adjudication. The pilot project plans t0 reduce this time to 7 to 10 days. Once the complete records are assembled they are made available to the VBA through DOMA’s digital document management software.

“Success of the DOMA – VBA Pilot project will be an important proof of concept moving towards faster adjudication of disability claims. We believe this pilot is an important piece of the overall VA strategy to support veterans and are excited to be working on such a meaningful project,” continues DeAtley.
