Department of Veterans Affairs May 6, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Payment for Home Health Services and Hospice Care to Non-VA Providers
Document Number: 2013-10694
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-05-06
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its regulations concerning the billing methodology for non-VA providers of home health services and hospice care. Because the newly applicable methodology cannot supersede rates for which VA has specifically contracted, this rulemaking will only affect home health and hospice care providers who do not have existing negotiated contracts with VA. This rule also rescinds internal guidance documents that could be interpreted as conflicting with this final rule.
