Third Party Billing for Medical Care Provided Under Special Treatment Authorities
Document Number: 2017-25269
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-22
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its medical regulations to clarify that VA will not bill third party payers for care and services provided by VA under certain statutory provisions, which we refer to as ``special treatment authorities.''

VA is authorized, but not required by law, to recover or collect charges for care and services provided to veterans for non-service connected disabilities. This proposed rule would establish that VA would not exercise its authority to recover or collect reasonable charges from third party payers for care and services provided under the special treatment authorities.
