Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1875, Veterans' Emergency Care Claims Parity Act [open pdf - 164KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Veteran's Affairs on July 28, 2021. From the Document: "S. 1875 would require any health care provider not affiliated with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to submit a claim for reimbursement within 180 days of providing emergency care to veterans. Under current law, providers may take two years to submit claims for emergency care provided without prior authorization for conditions that are connected to or were caused by their military service; the deadline is 90 days for conditions that are not connected to veterans' military service. The bill also would shield veterans from financial liability for unpaid claims that are not submitted on time or that are delayed as a result of administrative errors made by the provider or the department."
