What to Know
The appointment scheduled is for a hearing test as part of a process to collect evidence for a VA claim for compensation and pension. Even if you are already service connected for your hearing loss and/or tinnitus, this appointment has been made for a specific purpose.
The process set forth by the VA is strict. The evidence is property of the government and you may not receive the test results either in verbal or written form. The information collected is not portable, even to the local VA.
Your VA case has been assigned to a VA vendor, QTC, LHI, or VES which handles the scheduling and processing of your claim. The VA vendors help to expedite your claim through the VA system and ensure the quality of your claim meets the highest standards. This vendor is your point of contact for all questions or concerns about the appointment including scheduling.
