ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 7795, Veterans Benefits Fairness and Transparency Act of 2020   [open pdf - 28KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs on July 30, 2020. From the Document: "H.R. 7795 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to make disability benefit questionnaires (DBQs) available on the department's website. DBQs are standardized forms used by physicians when performing examinations that are used to determine veterans' eligibility for disability compensation. Disability compensation is a monthly cash benefit paid to veterans who have disabilities or diseases that have been determined to be connected to their military service. The bill also would require VA to accept earlier versions of DBQ forms and would require VA's inspector general to report annually on the use of DBQs until 2027."
