Department of Veterans Affairs May 26, 2011 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Payment or Reimbursement for Emergency Services for Nonservice-Connected Conditions in Non-VA Facilities
Document Number: 2011-13015
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-05-26
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
This document proposes to amend the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) ``Payment or Reimbursement for Emergency Services for Nonservice-Connected Conditions in Non-VA Facilities'' regulations to conform with changes made by certain sections of the Expansion of Veteran Eligibility for Reimbursement Act. Some of the revisions in this proposed rule are purely technical, matching the language of our regulations to the language of the revised statute, while others set out VA's policies regarding the implementation of statutory requirements. The proposed rule would expand the qualifications for payment or reimbursement to veterans who receive emergency services in non-VA facilities, and would establish accompanying standards for the method and amount of payment or reimbursement.
