Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: This document updates the Cost-Based and Inter-Agency billing rates for medical care or services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that apply in certain circumstances. The rates set forth herein are effective August 29, 2017 and until further notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Romona Greene, Office of Community Care (10D1C1), Veterans Health Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 382–2521 (this is not a toll free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VA’s methodology for computing Cost-Based and Inter-Agency billing rates for DATES: medical care or services provided by VA is set forth in 38 CFR 17.102(h). Two sets of rates are obtained by applying this methodology, Cost-Based rates and Inter-Agency rates. Cost-Based rates apply in accordance with 38 CFR 17.102 to medical care and services that are provided by VA: (a) In error or based on tentative eligibility; (b) In a medical emergency; (c) To pensioners of allied nations; and (d) For research purposes in circumstances under which the medical care appropriation shall be reimbursed from the research appropriation. Inter-Agency rates apply to medical care and services that are provided by VA to beneficiaries of the Department of Defense (DoD) or other Federal agencies, when the care or services provided is not covered by an applicable sharing agreement, unless otherwise stated. The calculations for the Cost-Based and Inter-Agency rates are the same with two exceptions. Inter-Agency rates are all-inclusive, and are not broken down into three components (Physician; Ancillary; and Nursing, Room and Board), and Inter-Agency rates do not include standard fringe benefit costs that cover government employee retirement, disability costs, and return on fixed assets. When VA pays for medical care or services from a non-VA source under circumstances in which the Cost-Based or Inter-Agency Rates would apply if the care or services had been provided by VA, the charge for such care or services will be the actual amount paid by VA for the care or services. Inpatient charges will be at the per diem rates shown for the type of bed section or discrete treatment unit providing the care. The following table depicts the CostBased and Inter-Agency Rates that are effective upon publication of this notice and will remain in effect until the next Federal Register notice is published.

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document updates the Cost-Based and Inter-Agency billing 
rates for medical care or services provided by the Department of 
Veterans Affairs (VA) that apply in certain circumstances.

DATES: The rates set forth herein are effective August 29, 2017 and 
until further notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Romona Greene, Office of Community 
Care (10D1C1), Veterans Health Administration, Department of Veterans 
Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20420, (202) 382-2521 
(this is not a toll free number).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VA's methodology for computing Cost-Based 
and Inter-Agency billing rates for medical care or services provided by 
VA is set forth in 38 CFR 17.102(h). Two sets of rates are obtained by 
applying this methodology, Cost-Based rates and Inter-Agency rates. 
Cost-Based rates apply in accordance with 38 CFR 17.102 to medical care 
and services that are provided by VA:
    (a) In error or based on tentative eligibility;
    (b) In a medical emergency;
    (c) To pensioners of allied nations; and
    (d) For research purposes in circumstances under which the medical 
care appropriation shall be reimbursed from the research appropriation.
    Inter-Agency rates apply to medical care and services that are 
provided by VA to beneficiaries of the Department of Defense (DoD) or 
other Federal agencies, when the care or services provided is not 
covered by an applicable sharing agreement, unless otherwise stated. 
The calculations for the Cost-Based and Inter-Agency rates are the same 
with two exceptions. Inter-Agency rates are all-inclusive, and are not 
broken down into three components (Physician; Ancillary; and Nursing, 
Room and Board), and Inter-Agency rates do not include standard fringe 
benefit costs that cover government employee retirement, disability 
costs, and return on fixed assets. When VA pays for medical care or 
services from a non-VA source under circumstances in which the Cost-
Based or Inter-Agency Rates would apply if the care or services had 
been provided by VA, the charge for such care or services will be the 
actual amount paid by VA for the care or services. Inpatient charges 
will be at the per diem rates shown for the type of bed section or 
discrete treatment unit providing the care.
    The following table depicts the Cost-Based and Inter-Agency Rates 
that are effective upon publication of this notice and will remain in 
effect until the next Federal Register notice is published. These rates 
supersede those established by the Federal Register notice published on 
July 7, 2016, at 81 FR 44409.
