The VA sleep apnea rating system is found in the federal code 38 C.F.R. § 4.97, Code 6847. The VA rates sleep apnea with four different ratings: 0%, 30%, 50%, and 100%. Veterans that require a CPAP machine for service-connected sleep apnea will receive a 50% VA disability rating. A 100% sleep apnea rating is reserved for chronic respiratory failure with carbon dioxide retention or where the veteran requires a tracheostomy.
