E Pluribus Unum - Out of Many, One

Section 17.4135 of Section 17.4135 establishes that litigation procedures are the exclusive administrative remedies of a company or supplier for disputes arising from agreements, in accordance with Section 1703A (h) (2). We interpret Section 1703A (h) (2) to protect disputes arising from agreements from the use of other administrative remedies that VA may use to resolve and/or resolve disputes in other contexts, including the application of administrative requirements and procedures under Chapters 71 and 38 CFR 38 and .C. In the scope of item (b), it is expected that the provisions of Section 17.4100-17.4135 contain procedures, requirements, obligations and limitations for: the certification process for facilities or suppliers at 38 U.S.C 1703A; concluding, managing, providing care or services in accordance with the law and recruiting contracts to assist veterans; and any litigation arising from or related to veterans` care agreements. Point b) also indicates that sections 17.4100 to 17.4135 apply to all institutions and providers that are parties to a Veterans Care Agreement, participate in the certification process and/or provide hospital care, medical care or extended care pursuant to a Veterans Care Contract. (a) The cancellation of the agreement by the company or supplier requires a written request for employment, in accordance with the terms of the Veterans Care Agreement and the following termination requirements: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its medical rules to implement its power to provide care to persons insured by certain agreements. Section 102 of John S. McCain III, Daniel K. Akaka, and Samuel R. Johnson VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks Act of 2018 authorizes VA to enter into agreements to provide the necessary care and services if such care and services are not available through a go, contract or sharing agreement. This provisional final rule defines the parameters of these agreements, including the establishment of a certification procedure for providers who provide such care or services; Defining a method of calculating rates for paying for care or services under an agreement; and the establishment of an administrative procedure to adjudicate disputes arising from or related to such agreements, including those relating to the rights to pay for care or services provided as part of an agreement.
