Payment or Reimbursement for Emergency Services for Nonservice--Connected Conditions in Non-VA Facilities

Summary

This document amends 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 Veterans' Emergency Care Fairness Act of 2009, 111 Public Law 137 ("2009 Act"). Some of the revisions in this rule are purely technical, matching the language of our regulations to the language of the statutes, while others set out VA's policies regarding the implementation of statutory requirements. The rule will 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.
