B. Medical Conditions Which Are To Be Included in Entitlement/Assessment

NOTE: If specific conditions are listed for a category, only these conditions are included in the entitlement and assessment of Post traumatic Stress Disorder. If no conditions are listed for a category, all conditions within the category are included in the entitlement and assessment of Post traumatic Stress Disorder.

Other Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders
Anxiety Disorders
Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders
Depressive Disorders
Bipolar and Related Disorders
Schizophrenia Spectrum and other Psychotic Disorders
Personality Disorders
Feeding and Eating Disorders
Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders
Dissociative Disorders
Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders
Somatic Symptom Disorder
Illness Anxiety Disorder
Conversion Disorder
Pain Disorders/Chronic Pain Syndrome (DSM-IV-TR Axis I Diagnosis)
Sleep-Wake Disorders
Insomnia Disorder
Hypersomnolence Disorder
Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Decreased Libido - if the medical information indicates decreased libido is a symptom of a psychiatric condition

Separate entitlement is required for a DSM-5 condition not included in Section B of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Entitlement Eligibility Guideline.
C. Common Medical Conditions Which May Result in Whole or in Part from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and/or its Treatment

Section C medical conditions may result in whole or in part as a direct result of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, from the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder or the combined effects of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and its treatment.

Conditions listed in Section C of the Entitlement Considerations are only granted entitlement if the individual merits and medical evidence of the case determines a consequential relationship exists. Consultation with Medical Advisory is strongly recommended.

If it is claimed a medication required to treat Posttraumatic Stress Disorder resulted in whole, or in part, in the clinical onset or aggravation of a medical condition the following must be established:

The individual was receiving the medication at the time of the clinical onset or aggravation of the medical condition.
The medication was used for the treatment of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
The medication is unlikely to be discontinued or the medication is known to have enduring effects after discontinuation.
The individual’s medical information and the current medical literature support the medication can result in the clinical onset or aggravation of the medical condition.
Note: Individual medications may belong to a class, or grouping, of medications. The effects of a specific medication may vary from the grouping. The effects of the specific medication should be considered and not the effects of the group.

The list of Section C conditions is not all inclusive. Conditions, other than those listed in Section C, may be claimed to have a consequential relationship to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and / or its treatment. Other conditions may be considered for entitlement based on the individual merits and medical evidence provided for each case. Consultation with Medical Advisory is strongly recommended.

Sexual Dysfunction (e.g., Erectile Dysfunction)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Bruxism
Xerostomia
Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
Restless Leg Syndrome
Obstructive Sleep Apnea

glad to hear your assessment went well but don't forget there are consequential side effects of ptsd that you can also apply for. i am sure someone can put a link up here on all the known ones and you can see if you have any of these.

I know with PTSD applications, you will be given an initial 10% until your PTSD condition "stabilizes".  Your stabilization is based on your individual response to treatment (e.g psychologist visits, medication, and other therapies) and the time can vary from months to years.

In my case, I made an application for PTSD, the condition was granted and I was given an initial 10%.  It was then  four years later from the time of my initial application before my PTSD was considered stabilized by my psychologist.   At that point, my psychologist completed the medical questionairee then VAC used the TOD to calculate my disability to a percentage (39%).

All the best

My first assessment for PTSD I was granted 40%. I had a reassessment done within last year and was increased to 49%. I am under disability pension so the increase showed in MYVAC under my pension amount before I received a letter in the mail

Once they make the final assessment, they will send out a letter informing you of the decision, and a form asking how you want to receive the funds. You can either take it as a Lump sum, or as annual payments, over X number of years. Once they have that signed form in hand, it only takes a few weeks for the money to be deposited.

Time after second assessment

Post by Old Army Guy on Sun 14 Jan 2018, 12:00

Good day guys,
It’s been 15 months since my first assessment (received initial 10%) and just had my second assessment done. Any idea how long I may wait to receive payment on decision ?
