Title: Survey of Veteran Enrollees’ Health and Reliance Upon VA, VA Form 10–21034g. OMB Control Number: 2900–0609. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Public Law 104–262, The Veterans Health Care Eligibility Reform Act of 1996, requires VA implement a priority-based enrollment system. VA must enroll veterans by specified priorities as far down the priorities as the available resources permit. The number of priority levels to which VHA will be able to deliver care will be a function of annual funding levels and utilization of health care services by enrollees. Additionally, eligibility reform has brought about the everincreasing need for VA to plan and budget for the evolving clinical care needs of its extremely dynamic enrollee population at risk of need or use of VA care. There is no valid, recent information available in administrative databases on all enrollees’ health status, income, and their reliance upon the VA system. The magnitude of changes each year in enrollees, their characteristics, and system policies make annual surveys necessary to capture this critical information for input into VHA’s Health Care Services Demand Model. The survey will provide VA with current information for sound decisions that affect the entire VA health care delivery system and the veterans it serves. VA Form 10–21034g will be used to provide the survey data on morbidity and reliance that is critical to obtaining accurate projections of VA’s ability to service veterans who are seeking VA health care services. The projections will also be used to support VA’s Capital Asset Realignment for Enhanced Services initiative and will also served as the basis for VA’s new emphasis on population-based budget formulation, policy scenario testing, and strategic planning.
