Providing specialized services in a digital environment with direct services to Veterans, their families and Survivors, as well as continuing to provide value to internal VA partners in support of VBA’s claims processing goals.
The RMC receives between 125,000-150,000 requests annually.
To help support this workload, the RMC successfully transitioned staff from the previous, paper-based missions such as processing incoming medical records from the service branches, which ceased as planned in December 2013.
