TPI Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity VAC671e

Post by robleggett on Mon 06 Mar 2017, 11:03

Anyone have to fill in one of these for physical injuries before getting approved TPI? I don't understand VAC, been with them for a few years now and also for a few years before I was released 3B, they know all my problems, they have everything on file. Now I have to take a 7 page document to my civie Dr, who I see about once or twice a year and ask her to fill all this in!! Now I know why people get all stressed out dealing with VAC. My ELB has run its course and I would of thought that being classed as TPI would just be a normal progression, all my injuries are chronic, they are never going to get better, that is why they granted me PIA?

This is giving me so much anxiety just reading this!
I can't imagine being able to go to any doctor and getting them to write me off as TPI, no doctor will write that. FML

Did you also have to get CVVRS to do a Employment TPI report completed. Expect that as well.

I know eh, can you imagine the stress for people that have ptsd and anxiety issues, why does vac have to make things so hard, when they already have all the info they need for most things!!!!

I dug up my old VAC671e form. I did not fill it out, that is the 7 - 8 page form that my doctor filled out. I only signed the consent etc. and yes Yump, CVVRS (CANVET) is involved also.

Oh I was a nervous wreck alright. My advice, pace yourself and remember to breathe. Oddest thing was that application was EXTREMELY pdq in my case to get approved. It took one week because cm's do have the authority to approve you TPI esp. if all your documents and ducks are in a row. But I do NOT want to give anyone false hope here as everyone sit. is different.

BTW bosn, I understand if it's hard to get out your door. Get your cm to visit YOU, It is what they can or are supposed to be doing. Hell, PEI ain't the size of Australia.

Stay very well all...

You may have to google it to get that form. Almost, impossible to find it anymore of VAC portal.
I am dealing now with SISIP/Manulife shi***. Apparently, doctors statement on their Manulife form, that i am not capable of any employment is not enough! They want supporting documents.

Bast#$%^.

The DEC VAC 671 Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity has been updated on VAC's website, however, it does not seem as though they updated the functional capacity assessment and the employability assessment yet.

Here is some info for you Artie:

A DEC decision must be based on evidence in relation to the health problem(s) for which the Veteran is eligible for the Rehabilitation Program.

The following objective evidence must be considered in making a DEC decision:

the prognosis regarding the program-eligible health problem(s); and
the impact of the program eligible health problem(s) on the Veteran’s:
functional capacity; and
employability.


Information to evaluate these factors may be obtained as required from sources including, but not limited to, the following:

medical/rehabilitation reports, which reflect the Veteran’s current health status and functional capacity;
the VAC 671 Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity;
a specialized
functional capacity assessment; an employability assessment and/or a vocational assessment obtained from a vocational rehabilitation provider;
Service Income Security Insurance Plan - Long Term Disability (SISIP-LTD) reports and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) – Disability Pension reports; and
any other relevant information needed to make a DEC decision


Specialized assessments, such as employability and functional capacity assessments, may not be required in all cases. For example, the medical report that accompanies the application may provide sufficient evidence to make a DEC decision for a Veteran with a clear and significant loss of functional capacity and employability.

Where evidence indicates that, with additional medical, psycho-social or vocational rehabilitation, the Veteran could have potential to regain capacity for suitable gainful employment, the Veteran should not be found to have met the criteria for a DEC designation.

Medical Questionnaire: Employment Capacity;
a specialized functional capacity assessment; an employability assessment...
So none of these assessment forms are available to view?

Hi All, I am wondering if any of you are giving a sheet stating your medical problems and how you feel etc…with the VAC671 form to your doctor to help him out to fill out the form properly, the reason I am asking is because the form is asking a lots of information in the past (such as treatments and medications used to stabilise my condition, my limitations et..) that I doubt my doctor is aware of because he was not my doctor at that time and every time I keep telling some of my problems it is like he is just  ignoring me. I want him to put some emphasis on my VAC disabilities. When he filled out the SISIP form he did not write all my problems and all this is really adding anxiety. This is my two years re-assessment and I do not have the initial form. Do you think the Doctor will be offended if I am giving him a sheet because I really want this form to be properly filled. Appt with him cannot be more than 10 mins at a time, and out of the office as quickly as possible.

Hi Marie H - I will be coming up to this soon also. I'm over 55 and have heard they may not do it. But that could be rumor also. But one idea I had for you. As part of my AA appeal, I have asked them to send out an OT too my house to do an assessment. This may be something you can ask VAC to do for you, as part of your 2 yr reassessment. I was willing to get one myself if they did not agree to pay for it. Anyone know if this will fly? And does everyone on DEC get a 2 yr reassessment?
