Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), section 17.01 sets forth the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical regulations concerning ‘‘reasonable charges’’ for medical care or services provided or furnished by VA to a veteran for: (1) A non-serviceconnected disability for which the veteran is entitled to care or the payment of expenses for care under a health plan contract; (2) a non-serviceconnected disability incurred incident to the veteran’s employment and covered under a worker’s compensation law or plan that provides reimbursement or indemnification for such care and services; or (3) a nonservice-connected disability incurred as a result of a motor vehicle accident in a State that requires automobile accident reparations insurance. The regulations include methodologies for establishing billed amounts for the following types of charges: Acute inpatient facility charges; skilled nursing facility and sub-acute inpatient facility charges; partial hospitalization facility charges; outpatient facility charges; physician and other professional charges, including professional charges for anesthesia services and dental services; pathology and laboratory charges; observation care facility charges; ambulance and other emergency transportation charges; and charges for durable medical equipment, drugs, injectables, and other medical services, items, and supplies identified by Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level II codes. The PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73063 regulations also provide that data for calculating actual charge amounts at individual VA facilities based on these methodologies will either be published as a notice in the Federal Register or will be posted on the Internet site of the Veterans Health Administration Chief Business Office, currently at http:// www.va.gov/cbo, under ‘‘Charge Data.’’ Certain charges are hereby updated as described in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice. These changes are effective January 1, 2008. In circumstances when charges for medical care or services provided or furnished at VA expense, by either VA or non-VA providers, have not been established under other provisions or regulations, the method for determining VA’s charges is set forth at 38 CFR 17.101(a)(8). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Romona Greene, Chief Business Office (168), Veterans Health Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 254–0361. (This is not a toll free number.) Of the charge types listed in the Summary section of this notice, acute inpatient facility charges and skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility charges are not being changed. Acute inpatient facility charges remain the same as set forth in a notice published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2007 (72 FR 57276). VA’s current inpatient charge structure utilizes the methodology set forth in 38 CFR 17.101 and does not itemize inpatient bills. Skilled nursing facility/sub-acute inpatient facility charges also remain the same as set forth in a notice published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2007 (72 FR 57276). Based on the methodologies set forth in 38 CFR 17.101, this document provides an update to charges for 2008 HCPCS Level II and Current Procedural Technology (CPT) codes. Charges are also being updated based on more recent versions of data sources for the following charge types: Partial hospitalization facility charges; outpatient facility charges; physician and other professional charges, including professional charges for anesthesia services and dental services; pathology and laboratory charges; observation care facility charges; ambulance and other emergency transportation charges; and charges for durable medical equipment, drugs, injectables, and other medical services, items, and supplies identified by SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\26DEN1.SGM 26DEN1
