bunion va rating
In the context of veterans benefits, a bunion is considered a disabling condition that can be rated for disability compensation. The rating for a bunion is based on the severity of the condition and how much it affects the veteran's ability to function. The rating is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and is given as a percentage, with 100% being the most severe. A bunion can be rated as mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the symptoms and how much it limits the veteran's ability to walk, stand, or work. The rating is determined by the VA's Schedule for Rating Disabilities (VASRD) which has specific criteria to evaluate the impact of the bunion on the veteran's life. The rating can range from 0% to 100%.
