Sleep Apnea: The Path to Service Connection
June 20, 2018 at 2:00 pm ET
Presenter: Chris Attig of Attig|Steel
In this webinar, Chris Attig will walk you through the four pillars of a VA sleep apnea service connection claim. He will dispel some of the myths that it is harder to service connect sleep apnea, explain the different types of sleep apnea, and address how to develop the lay and medical evidence necessary to establish service connection. Chris will also share evidence that can better support your client’s sleep apnea appeal, and describe how to maximize your client's sleep apnea rating once it is service connected.
