Criteria for a Catastrophically Disabled Determination for Purposes of Enrollment
Document Number: 2013-04134
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-02-22
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its regulation concerning the manner in which VA determines that a veteran is catastrophically disabled for purposes of enrollment in priority group 4 for VA health care. The current regulation relies on specific codes from the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT[supreg]). We propose to state the descriptions that would identify an individual as catastrophically disabled, instead of using the corresponding ICD-9-CM and CPT[supreg] codes. The revisions would ensure that our regulation is not out of date when new versions of those codes are published. The revisions would also broaden some of the descriptions for a finding of catastrophic disability. Additionally, we would eliminate the Folstein Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) as a criterion for determining whether a veteran meets the definition of catastrophically disabled, because we have determined that the MMSE is no longer a necessary clinical assessment tool.
