A “nexus” is a link or connection between two or more things. Thus the purpose of a NEXUS letter is to clearly connect a veteran’s current medical condition to another service-connected condition or to circumstances directly related to military service.
NEXUS letters are letters from a veteran’s current physician(s) stating their medical opinion regarding the service-connection of a veteran’s condition(s).
NEXUS letters are essential for any condition on a VA Disability Claim that is not automatically considered service-connected because 1.) there is ample evidence that it occurred during the veteran’s service or 2.) it is on the VA Presumptive List.
Which Claims Require a NEXUS Letter?
All secondary conditions or conditions caused by military exposure/circumstances not included on the Presumptive List benefit from a NEXUS letter supporting the claim.
