    Does anyone know whether the VA will accept a copy of Form 21-2680 or whether the form I send in must have an original doctor's signature? The rehab center where my Mom currently is staying filled out the form, faxed it to the attending doctor, who signed it and faxed it back. In other words, the rehab center only has a copy and not the original. Do I need to try to get the form from the doctor with his orginial signature or is the copy OK to submit to VA?

    Thanks!

    The VA should accept it, but no guarantee that they won't come back and ask for the original.
