“The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proposing to amend its regulations that govern VA health care. This rule would grant eligible veterans access to urgent care from qualifying non-VA entities or providers without prior approval from VA. This rulemaking would implement the mandates of the VA MISSION Act of 2018 and increase veterans’ access to health care in the community.”

Comments must be sent to VA by March 9, 2019.  This proposed regulation will likely become final summer 2019.
