SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 30, 2008, VA published a final rule in the Federal Register (73 FR 36796) amending its beneficiary travel regulation. The revised regulations, set forth at 38 CFR part 70, provide a mechanism for payment of travel expenses within the United States under 38 U.S.C. 111 to help veterans and other persons obtain care and services from VA's Veterans Health Administration. In making the necessary edits, a word was accidentally omitted in § 70.10(b). This document corrects the error in § 70.10(b) by removing “care services” and adding, in its place “care or services”.
