Veterans Administration to Require New Agreements Under Community Care Program
Posted on Friday, May 24, 2019 2:11 PM
The Veterans Administration (VA) has issued an interim final rule that implements section 102 of the VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks Act of 2018 (MISSION Act), authorizing the VA to enter into agreements with community providers to furnish required care and services when care and services are not feasibly available through a VA facility, a contract, or a sharing agreement.
The new rule establishes a certification process for providers a methodology by which payments will be calculated and a process set settling disputes that may arise.
Home health agencies can provide veterans with home health services under the Veterans Community Care Program and have been providing services to individuals paid for by the VA for many years; long before the Veterans Choice Program was implemented.
