VA RIN: 2900-AR49 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Behavioral Health Care for Certain Former Members of the Armed Forces 

VA proposes to amend its medical regulations to implement statutory authority to provide behavioral health care to certain former members of the Armed Forces who received a discharge under other than honorable conditions.  In addition, VA proposes amending its tentative eligibility regulation to clarify tentative eligibility for emergency care, address individuals presenting with a clinically significant mental health need, and to address transitioning care when an individual receiving medical services under such regulation is determined to be ineligible for VA health benefits.  VA also proposes moving various current sections of its medical regulations related to provision of mental health care to new sections.
