Veterans Affairs
On March 19, 2009, the Department of Veterans Affairs submitted a proposed rule-making order to the Wisconsin Legislative Council Rules Clearinghouse.
Analysis
The proposed order revises section VA 2.01 (1), relating to the assistance to needy veterans grant program.
The amendment of VA 2.01 (1) (f) and (n) and the creation of VA 2.01 (1) (u) will refine the definition of health care assistance available under this program. The program is intended to provide health care assistance to those veterans who are not eligible for the federal assistance offered to veterans. Current definitions of “dental care" and “hearing care" do not provide sufficient direction for health care professionals in providing necessary services to eligible veterans and no definition exists for “vision care" in the current program. The modification of the definitions of “dental care" and “hearing care", as well as the creation of a definition for “vision care" will allow veterans to receive a reasonable modicum of the benefits available to those veterans eligible for federal assistance.
Agency Procedure for Promulgation
A public hearing is required and will be scheduled at a later date. The Office of the Secretary is primarily responsible for preparing the rule.
