What Is A Va Agreement

Section 17.4120 specifies that the fee structure for the payment of hospital care, medical care and extended care provided pursuant to an agreement approved pursuant to Section 1703A of this title is the tariff set under the terms of this agreement. Any agreement of this type contains price conditions for all services within its scope. Payment rates are in line with the parameters described below. 17.4120 (a) – (e). In order to comply with Section 1703A (d), payment rates will be consistent with the parameters set in Section 1703 (i) of Section 101 of the MISSION Act. For the sake of convenience and understanding, we refer to the provisions of Section 1703, since Section 101 of the MISSION Act will amend it, although we recognize that Section 1703, as amended, is not in a position to start Printed Page 21672legal until VA publishes a final rule on the implementation of the Veteran`s Health Care Program (the proposed rule RIN 2900-AQ46 , Veterans Community Care Program , was released on February 22, 2019, see 84 FR 5629). Until Section 1703 (i), as amended, is effective, VA exercises, in this final rule, its general authority to set the rates of care and services paid under an agreement, and these rates will be consistent with Section 1703 (i) when it comes into force. Section 17.4115 defines the fundamental parameters of the implementation of agreements. In accordance with paragraph (a) of page 17.4115, it is stipulated that VA may only provide hospital care, medical care or extensive medical care through a VCA if such care or services are available to an insured person entitled to such care or services in accordance with Chapter 17 of U.C. The requirement of section 17.4115, paragraph 1, which provides that individuals are entitled to care or services, is consistent with Section 1703A (a) (1) (A). The general requirement of Section 1703A(a) (a) (A) of Article a bis, paragraph 2, of P. 17.4115 confirms that VA may only use care or service provision agreements if such care or services of the insured person are not possible through an agency, contract or sharing agreement.

In paragraph 17.4115, paragraph 17.4115 essentially amends the language of Section 1703A, point a), but amends the fact that “only” agreements can be considered for their use after these other means of providing care services have been considered.
