If you are struggling with sleep apnea, it may be time to get your VA disability rating. Sleep apnea is abbreviated as OSA, which stands for obstructive sleep apnea.
If you want to win your VA sleep apnea claim, the first thing that you should do is to see a Sleep Specialist. Sleep apnea is diagnosed by Sleep Study/Polysomnography. Obstructive sleep apnea is common among veterans as it often happens when an individual has increased obesity due to the use of medications to treat mental health disorders. This is known as a VA sleep apnea secondary. Sleep apnea can also occur when a veteran has suffered injuries to the neck and back, such as whiplash.

Veterans with Sleep Apnea will be subject to their Sleep Study results; if Veterans claim they have Sleep Apnea and do not see a Sleep Specialist and get tested for Sleep Apnea, it is unlikely they will win a sleep apnea VA disability rating.
It’s important to know that the VA doesn’t always give out 50% disability ratings for veterans who have sleep apnea.
Instead, sleep apnea disability ratings are given on a case-to-case basis. As sleep apnea can be caused by many different health problems, sleep apnea ratings will vary depending on the severity of your sleep disorder. It is possible to have sleep apnea and not have some of the serious symptoms that come with it.
