VA implemented regulations to administer this authority as a reimbursement benefit in Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 38.628. Reimbursement for a claim received in any CY will not exceed the average cost of a 20-gauge metal casket or a durable plastic urn during the fiscal year (FY) preceding the CY of the claim. Average costs are determined by market analysis for 20-gauge metal caskets, designed to contain human remains, with a gasketed seal, and external rails or handles. The same analysis is completed for durable plastic urns, designed to contain cremated human remains, which include a secure closure to contain the cremated remains. Using this method of computation, in FY 2015, the average costs for caskets were determined to be $2,421.00, and $244.00 for urns. Accordingly, the reimbursement rates payable for qualifying interments occurring during CY 2016 is $2,421.00 for caskets and $244 for urns. Request approval to publish in the Federal Register, VA’s notice on the rates of reimbursement for caskets and urns for CY2016.
