Copayments for medications in 2013. Interim final rule.


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its medical regulations concerning the copayment required for certain medications. But for this rulemaking, beginning on January 1, 2013, the copayment amount would increase based on a formula set forth in regulation. The maximum annual copayment amount payable by veterans would also increase. For 2012, VA "froze'' the copayment amount for veterans in VA's health care system enrollment priority categories 2 through 6, but allowed copayments to increase based on the regulatory formula for veterans in priority categories 7 and 8. However, that formula did not trigger an increase in the copayment amount for veterans in priority categories 7 and 8. This rulemaking freezes copayments at the current rate for veterans in priority categories 2 through 8 for 2013, and thereafter resumes increasing copayments in accordance with the regulatory formula.
