No Smoking Cessation Copayment

Recommended Posts

Elimination of Copayment for Smoking Cessation Counseling -

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

published an interim final rule in the Federal Register on May 2, 2005, to amend its medical regulations concerning copayments for inpatient hospital care and outpatient medical care. This rule designates smoking cessation counseling (individual and group sessions) as a service that is not subject to copayment requirements. The intended effect of this interim final rule is to increase participation in smoking cessation counseling by removing the copayment barrier.

Effective Date: May 2, 2005.

Comments deadline: July 1, 2005.

Address: Director, Regulations Management (00REG1), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW, Room 1068, Washington, DC 20420; or fax comments to (202) 273-9026; or e-mail comments to VARegulations@mail.va.gov; web site: http://www.Regulations.gov.

Fuinny as I think the Military made smokers out of a lot of people who may have not done it. Cheap cigs and smoke breaks sort of paved the road.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
