Roughly 22 million
Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Stripes
reports that about 25,000 veterans made sleep apnea VA disability claims in 2015 alone. This is up from less than 1,000 in 2001. Therefore, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has been looking at ways to reduce the volume of claims and, in turn, reduce payments for sleep apnea claims. As such, it’s important for veterans seeking compensation to act quickly to preserve their rights, if they believe they have a service-connected claim for sleep apnea.
