VA RIN: 2900-AR55 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: CHAMPVA Coverage of Audio-Only Telehealth, Mental Health Services, and Cost Sharing for Certain Contraceptive Services and Contraceptive Products Approved, Cleared, or Granted by FDA 

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is amending its medical regulations regarding Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) coverage. This rulemaking would align with the Department of Defense for benefits administered through TRICARE and other Federal programs. This rulemaking would remove the exclusion from CHAMPVA coverage for audio-only telehealth.  In addition, we are removing limitations on outpatient mental health visits as well as removing copayment requirements for contraceptive methods and services approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
