Type: Rule

Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Affairs (VA) adopts as final, with changes, a proposed rule amending its regulation governing standards applicable to a community residential care facility (CRC) approved by VA.

The rule amends and updates the criteria VA uses to determine whether the rate for care charged to a veteran residing in an approved CRC is appropriate, clarifying how VA determines whether a CRC rate should be approved, consistent with current VA practice.

Service Members Group Life Insurance-Definition of Stillborn Child for Purposes of Coverage
Document Number: 2019-13553
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-26
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend the regulation defining ``member's stillborn child'' for purposes of the Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) program.

VA proposes to amend the definition to allow reliance upon the fetus' gestational age even if the fetus' weight is known. As a result, a fetus whose duration in utero is 20 completed weeks of gestation but who weighs less than 350 grams would qualify as a ``member's stillborn child.''

Removing Net Worth Requirement From Health Care Enrollment
Document Number: 2019-10869
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-24
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is removing the regulatory provisions regarding the veteran's net worth as a factor in determining the veteran's eligibility for VA health care. Prior to January 1, 2015, VA considered a veteran's net worth and annual income when determining a veteran's assignment to an enrollment priority group for VA health care. Reporting net worth information imposed a significant burden on veterans and VA dedicated substantial administrative resources to verify the reported information. VA changed its policy regarding net worth reporting in order to improve access to VA health care to lower-income veterans and to remove the reporting burden from veterans by discontinuing collection of net worth information. As VA no longer considers net worth in making eligibility determinations, this final rule amends the regulation to remove reference to VA's discretionary statutory authority to consider a veteran's net worth as a factor in determining eligibility for VA health care. Because of the net worth reporting requirement, certain veterans who would have been eligible to receive VA health care based on their annual income were ineligible for such care, or they were placed in a lower priority category, because their net worth was too high.
