Psychologist (VMG1)

Job Description

Job Summary:


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 America's heroes. These exams consist of an objective one-time non-treatment psychological assessment related to the veteran's 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 veteran's 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.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
