Two sets of rates are obtained by applying this methodology, Cost-Based and InterAgency. Cost-Based rates apply to medical care and services that are provided by VA under 38 CFR 17.102(a), (b), (d) and (g), respectively, in the following circumstances: • In error or based on tentative eligibility; • In a medical emergency; • To pensioners of allied nations; and • 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS Cost-Based and Inter-Agency Billing Rates for Medical Care or Services Provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs for Fiscal Year 2022 Department of Veterans Affairs.

The calculations for the Cost-Based and Inter-Agency rates are the same with two exceptions.

The following table depicts the CostBased and Inter-Agency rates that are effective October 1, 2021 and will remain in effect until the next fiscal year Federal Register update.
