Other research not cited by Frueh has found that disability compensation for PTSD does not affect veterans’ clinical outcomes or treatment dropout rates. One study even found that veterans who had been awarded service-connected PTSD disability status maintained or increased their utilization of mental health services after receiving their disability rating (3). Murdoch and colleagues (4) found that after six years of ongoing benefits, veterans who had service-connected PTSD disability status experienced clinically important reductions in PTSD symptoms and less poverty and homelessness, compared with applicants whose disability claims had been denied. Two clinical trials, which found that veterans with PTSD can benefit from the two evidence-based treatments being disseminated within the VA, demonstrated that PTSD compensation status did not affect treatment response (5,6). Admittedly, however, more research is needed.
