VA RIN: 2900-AP55 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Medical Care in the Philippines 

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proposing to remove and amend certain medical regulations that govern medical care and services in the Republic of the Philippines. VA is proposing to clarify that medical care provided in the Philippines is governed by the same statute that governs the foreign medical program. VA is removing regulations that pertain to care in the Veterans Memorial Medical Center because VA’s authority for that care has expired. We are also clarifying the delegation of authority for regulations that govern payment or reimbursement of medical care not previously authorized in non-VA medical facilities.
