Many medical consulting firms attempt to be a “Jack of all trades,” going well beyond the scope of their expertise, training, education and even licensure – resulting in veterans receiving fragmented, incomplete, unqualified nexus letters and access letter reviews.
For example, it is common among inexperienced or unqualified firms to assign a psychologist to write a medical opinion linking a veteran’s sleep apnea to military service. Sleep apnea is clearly a condition requiring extensive training in sleep medicine and pulmonary function. Not only did this psychologist go beyond the scope of his training and expertise, but he went beyond the scope of his licensure. Needless to say, the VA denied the veteran’s VA claim for sleep apnea service connection.
At Elite Medical Review Associates, our doctors are renowned for their meticulous research, recognition of all relevant links between service events and disabilities, and diligent nexus letter preparation. By providing strong support for VA claims right from the start, we help our veteran clients avoid months to years of VA appeals for denied claims - preserving valuable time and money.
Veterans seeking service connection and maximum disability ratings need the benefit of a medical consulting firm whose in-house experts can guide you to VA-qualified medical professionals in various specialties that will advocate on your behalf.

High-quality nexus letters may be less critical for conditions on VA presumptive lists. However, the majority of VA claims involve non-presumptive conditions. In these cases, the nexus letter can mean the difference between winning VA compensation and years of VA denials or claims appeals.
VA Claims Requiring Expert Nexus Letters May Include:
- VA claims for illness appearing months or years after military discharge
- VA claims for illnesses caused by treatment of a separate health condition
- VA claims for Meniere’s Disease or hearing loss

- Doctor writing the VA nexus letter does not meet VA requirements
- Doctor fails to provide enough evidence to support service connection
- Doctor uses incorrect standard of proof in medical nexus opinion
- Doctor uses unclear, inconclusive language in medical nexus opinion
