Good Morning, I am currently looking for a psychiatrist MD to work at our QTC Clinic at Anchorage AK QTC Medical Group is a contracted medical group through the Department of Veteran Affairs, to contract physicians to perform one-time compensation & pension and pre-discharge, examinations for our countries veterans and/or service members. QTC Exams are one time appointments that involve no treatment, follow-up exams and/or writing of prescriptions. Depending on the specialty exam required these exams can range 30-90 minutes. QTC is responsible for payment of services; the VA and the claimant are not responsible for payment. QTC payments are processed on the 1st and 15th of every month. Please see the attached fee schedule for reimbursement rates for your specialty. QTC Exams are required to be performed in ADA/OSHA compliant facilities, by providers licensed in the state in which the exam takes place. Providers who are currently employed with the VA might not be eligible to perform exams for QTC, Please inquire if this applies to you. QTC has over 85 different DBQ forms, some service members have 1 or 2 DBQ forms, while others could have more (depends on claimants conditions and specialty required). When scheduling QTC staff will let you know upfront how many conditions the service member/veteran has. Attached is a sample DBQ form for you to review. We will also send the service member/ veteran a medical history form for them to fill out and bring to you for the history portion of the exam. We hope this will assist in the evaluation process. However, we do require you to review, clarify and complete the form(s) as appropriate. QTC offers a web based system called KMEP, when viewing DBQ forms on this website you will be asked to enter the claimants information during or after each exam, by clicking boxes and entering text into text boxes. In addition to the sample DBQ forms is a sample final report/DBQ form that is generated from using the KMEP system. In order to use KMEP your computer requirements are as follows: Pentium 350 MHz. or better, Microsoft Windows 98 or above Operating System, 256 MB of Memory (RAM) minimum/ 512 MB recommended, Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 or above, and DSL or any other broadband connection recommended such as T1 or cable modem. If KMEP is not an option QTC offers a transcribing or dictation service to generate/complete the required paperwork. Appointments are scheduled approximately 5 to 7 days from the time QTC calls you. You may see as many or as few appointments per week that you would like, you set the pace. Please feel free to contact me at the information provided below with any questions or concerns you might have when making your decision.
