On Monday July 12, 2010 the US Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, D.C., announced a critical step in simplifying the process for Veterans seeking health care and/or disability compensation for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Under the new rule, VA would not require corroboration of a stressor related to fear of hostile military or terrorist activity if a VA doctor confirms that the stressful experience recalled by a Veteran adequately supports a diagnosis of PTSD and the Veteran's symptoms are related to the claimed stressor.
