Today VA published in the Federal Register a proposed regulation to amend the VA Schedule for Rating Disabilities [VASRD] in connection with Infectious Diseases, Immune Disorders, and Nutritional Deficiencies.

Here is the link to the Federal Register: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2019-02-05/pdf/2019-00636.pdf

The purpose of these changes is to incorporate medical advances, update medical terminology, and clarify evaluation criteria. The proposed rule considers  comments from experts and the public during a forum held from January 31 to February 1, 2011, on revising this section of the VASRD.

Comments must be received by VA on or before April 8, 2019.
