DIAMOND BAR, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- QTC Medical Services, Inc. announced the award of the Department of Veterans Affairs contract to administer Compensation and Pension (C&P) disability examinations to veterans living in Louisiana and New Mexico. The cities served in Louisiana are New Orleans and Alexandria while counties in New Mexico include Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe, Taos, Rio Arriba, San Juan, Chaves, and Eddy. This is a two year contract with over 8,000 exam referrals per contract year. This is the second contract of this nature to be awarded to QTC. In 1998, QTC was the first private company to be awarded the contract to administer compensation and pension (C&P) disability exams on behalf of the Department of Veterans Affairs. In 2003, QTC was re-awarded the contract that covers ten VA Regional Offices: Los Angeles, CA, San Diego, CA, Salt Lake City, UT, Seattle, WA, Houston, TX, Muskogee, OK, Atlanta, GA, Boston, MA, Roanoke, VA, and Winston-Salem, NC. The contract also encompasses examinations for service members who are seeking benefits delivery at discharge (BDD) exams and shared exams for VA and DoD at 36 military installations. BDD exams are administered when active duty members want to file a claim for VA benefits prior to their separation/retirement. VA and DoD's shared exams involve active duty members requiring both a BDD exam and a DoD separation exam. "This kind of an award is based, not only on being price competitive, but most importantly on the tremendous strength of QTC's quality performance in a very demanding environment," said Chief Operating Officer, Dr. James Peake. "This is where we assure quality and timely examinations with a focus on customer service for America's heroes - in this case our veterans."
