If you’re a service member who has been declared unfit for duty for medical reasons, further consideration is given to whether your medical condition is, or is not, service-connected. The determination process of both fitness for duty and whether the injury or condition is connected to your military service is carried out by the Medical Evaluation Board.Because a Medical Evaluation Board’s findings may significantly affect your military career and your ability to collect disability payments, you can challenge the board’s findings. Enlisting the services of an attorney who intimately knows the medical evaluation process can increase your chances for a satisfactory outcome.
