AR48(P) Copayment Exemption for Indian Veterans

AR48(P) Copayment Exemption for Indian Veterans


What does the regulation do? This Proposed rulemaking would exempt those veterans who are Indian or urban Indian (as defined in the Indian Health Care Improvement Act) from copayments for hospital care and medical services. It would establish documentation requirements to demonstrate a veteran meets these definitions of Indian or urban Indian. It would also authorize VA to retroactively reimburse these veterans for care received on or after January 5, 2022.


Who does it impact? Veterans who are Indian or urban Indian (as defined in the Indian Health Care Improvement Act)


Why is it happening/important? To ensure that these veterans do not have to pay copays for health care they receive through VA. It would eliminate a barrier to care.


Why are we doing it?  This is mandated by 38 U.S.C 1730A, as amended by section 3002 of the Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020
