For 2012, the Budget is requesting $50.6 billion in advance appropriations for the three medical care appropriations: Medical Services, Medical Support and Compliance, and Medical Facilities. This request for advance appropriations fulfills the Administration's commitment to provide reliable and timely resources to support the delivery of accessible and high-quality medical services for veterans.

With the resources already appropriated for 2011, VA will further expand health care eligibility to non-disabled veterans earning modest incomes. This expansion will bring nearly 550,000 eligible veterans into the VA health care system by 2013. The 2011 appropriated level provides the resources needed to achieve this expansion while maintaining high quality and timely care for lower-income and service-disabled veterans who currently rely on VA medical care.

The Department of Defense (DOD) and VA will combine their resources in 2011 to operate the first totally integrated Federal health care facility in the country— the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center located in North Chicago, Illinois. This facility will care for all eligible VA and DOD beneficiaries. Each department will contribute funding to the Joint DOD-VA Medical Facility Demonstration Fund established by section 1704 of Public Law 111-84, the "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010". Funding appropriated for Medical Services, Medical Support and Compliance, Medical Facilities, as well as the funding requested in 2011 for the Information Technology Systems account will be transferred to the Joint DOD-VA Medical Facility Demonstration Fund.

Medical services.—Provides for a comprehensive, integrated health care delivery system that addresses the needs of eligible veterans and beneficiaries in VA medical centers, outpatient clinic facilities, contract hospitals, State homes, and outpatient programs on a fee basis. Hospital and outpatient care is also provided by the private sector for certain dependents and survivors of veterans under the Civilian Health and Medical Programs for the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA). For 2012, the Budget requests $39.6 billion for Medical Services.

Medical Care Collections Fund (MCCF).—For 2012, VA estimates collections of nearly $3.7 billion, representing 8 percent of available resources. VA has the authority to collect inpatient and outpatient co-payments, medication co-payments, and nursing home co-payments; authority for certain income verification; authority to recover third-party insurance payments from veterans for nonservice-connected conditions; and authority to collect revenue from enhanced use leases. These collections also include those collected from the Compensated Work Therapy Program, Compensation and Living Expenses Program, and the Parking Program.

The purpose of the Joint Incentive Fund (JIF) is to enable the Departments to carry out a program to identify and provide incentives to implement creative sharing initiatives at the facility, intra-regional and nationwide levels. The JIF promotes collaboration and new approaches to problem solving to enable the Departments to more effectively service veterans. The Departments have established the fund and developed processes and criteria to solicit and select projects. Section 721 of the 2003 National Defense Authorization Act, Public Law 107-314, established the fund and requires VA and Department of Defense (DOD) to establish a joint incentive program. In 2011, each Secretary shall contribute a minimum of $15 million to the fund after the appropriation is enacted.

For 2011, the total budgetary resources of $1.9 billion are comprised of $590 million in direct appropriations, $590 million in medical care support, and $710 million in Federal and private sector grants. The research program will support 3,345 FTE through direct appropriation and a total of over 15,000 research staff through all funding sources. High priority Research programs in 2011 will provide Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom Veterans and Rural Veterans with critical needs research activity.

This account is an intramural program and VA R&D has had significant success developing research leading to clinical achievements that improve the health and quality of life for veterans and the Nation. This success enables VA to be at the forefront of producing new transformational approaches and technologies for preventing, diagnosing, and treating disease. VA research transforms medicine by uniquely engaging veterans both as clinical patients and as research volunteers. Through technology, advancements, and information, research helps transform VA's health care into a leading example of medicine in the 21st Century. One of the critical missions of VA research is to identify system-wide gaps in care to veterans. This includes assessing specific barriers to care for vulnerable populations, including rural Veterans. VA research has demonstrated an explicit focus on access as a component of validating the quality of care in all VA health care services, organizational structures, and mechanisms for delivering care. Current studies address new telemedicine and telehealth initiatives, community based outpatient clinics (CBOCs), collaborative care models, access for OEF/OIF Veterans, and access to specialized care such as VA rehabilitation services. The development, evaluation, and implementation of new telemedicine technologies represent an important focus of research to improve access to VA health care, particularly for rural Veterans.

VA will also focus on Genomic & Personalized Medicine where using information on a patients' genetic make-up can lead to a more tailored, precise and effective level of care. VA expects to continue investigating whether genetic influences in disease and/or responses to medications can be used to further advance personalized care.

VA core priorities will include Mental Health, Women Veterans, Regenerative Medicine, Comparative Effectiveness Research, and Diabetes.

VA scientists who partner with colleagues from other Federal agencies, academic medical centers, nonprofit organizations, and commercial entities nationwide further expand the reach and scope of VA research. Through VA's academic affiliations as well as collaborations with other Federal agencies, it is fully integrated with the larger biomedical research community.

Veterans' health issues are addressed comprehensively in the following four program divisions and the medical care research support required for these programs:

Biomedical laboratory.—Supports preclinical research to understand life processes from a molecular, genomic, and physiological level in regard to diseases affecting veterans.

Clinical science.—Administers investigations (i.e., human subject research such as drug, surgical, single subject, pilot and multi-center cooperative studies as well as feasibility trials) aimed at instituting new, more effective clinical care.

Health services.—Supports studies to identify and promote effective and efficient strategies to improve the delivery of health care to veterans.

Rehabilitation.—Develops novel approaches to restoring veterans with traumatic amputation, central nervous system injuries, loss of sight and/or hearing, or other physical and cognitive impairments to full and productive lives.
VA's Medical and Prosthetic Research programs are included in the Federal Science & Technology (FS&T) budget.

VA has the authority to collect co-payments which are deposited into the Medical Care Collections Fund (MCCF) receipt account. As allowed by the provisions of the appropriations Act, these receipts are transferred to the Medical Services appropriation where they remain available until expended for the purposes of this account. In 2009, $2.8 billion was collected in the MCCF receipt account and transferred to the Medical Services appropriation to provide health care to our veterans. These collections consist of co-payments from veterans for inpatient, outpatient, and nursing home care and prescribed medications; third-party insurance payments from veterans for nonservice-connected conditions; and collections from enhanced-use leases, the Compensated Work Therapy Program, Compensation and Living Expensed Program, and the Parking Program.

This appropriation provides for the payment of compensation, pension, and burial benefits to veterans and survivors.

Compensation is paid to veterans for disabilities incurred in or aggravated during active military service. Dependency and Indemnity Compensation is paid to survivors of servicepersons or veterans whose death occurred while on active duty or as a result of service-connected disabilities. Compensation and vocational rehabilitation is provided to the children of Vietnam veterans who were born with certain birth defects. The Secretary may pay a clothing allowance to each veteran who uses a prescribed medication for a service-connected skin condition or wears a prosthetic or orthopedic appliance (including a wheelchair) which, in the judgment of the Secretary, tends to damage or tear the clothing of such veteran.

Miscellaneous benefits provided for are:

(a) payments for claims made pursuant to the provision of the World War Adjusted Compensation Act of 1924, as amended;

(b) a special allowance (38 U.S.C. 1312) to dependents of certain Veterans who died after December 31, 1956, but who were not fully and currently insured under the Social Security Act; and

(c) payments authorized by the Equal Access to Justice Act.

The appropriation also provides for a program to allow VA to perform income matches for certain compensation recipients.

In accordance with Public Law 97-377, the Reinstated Entitlement Program for Survivors (REPS) program restores Social Security benefits to certain surviving spouses or children of veterans who died of service-connected causes.

Legislation is proposed to provide a cost-of-living adjustment comparable to the annual social security increase to recipients of disability compensation, dependency and indemnity compensation, and clothing allowances. The increase, effective with payments made on January 1, 2011, is expected to be 0.0 percent.

Pension benefits may be paid to veterans or their survivors. A veteran's entitlement is based on active duty service of a specific length (normally 90 days or more) during a designated war period, disabilities considered permanent and total, and countable income below established levels. There is no disability requirement for survivor cases or veterans age 65 or older. Income support is provided at established benefit levels.

An automatic annual cost-of-living increase comparable to the annual social security increase is provided for those pensioners in the improved program and to parents receiving dependency and indemnity compensation. The increase, effective with payments made on January 1, 2011, is expected to be 0.0 percent.

This appropriation finances educational assistance allowances for certain service persons, veterans, and for eligible dependents of those: (a) veterans who died from service-connected causes or have a total and permanent rated service-connected disability; and (b) servicepersons who were captured or missing in action. In addition, certain disabled veterans are provided with vocational rehabilitation, specially adapted housing grants, and automobile grants with the associated approved adaptive equipment. Voluntary contributions by eligible servicepersons and matching contributions provided by the Department of Defense are included in the Post-Vietnam Era Veterans Education Account.

The Post 9-11 GI Bill (Chapter 33).—Public Law 110-252, greatly expanded education benefits beginning on August 1, 2009. Based on length of active duty service and training rate, trainees may be entitled to benefits including: tuition and fees, housing allowance, books and supplies stipend, kickers, and Yellow Ribbon matching payments. Certain active duty members of the Armed Forces may transfer benefits to a spouse or children.

All volunteer force educational assistance (Montgomery GI Bill).—Public Law 98-525, enacted October 19, 1984, established two new educational programs: an assistance program for veterans who enter active duty during the period beginning July 1, 1985; and an assistance program for certain members of the Selected Reserve. Public Law 108-375 established a program to provide educational assistance to members of the reserve components called or ordered to active service in response to a war or national emergency declared by the President or the Congress, in recognition of the sacrifices that those members make in answering the call to duty. The Readjustment Benefit appropriation pays the basic benefit allowance for veterans, except for certain Post-Vietnam Era Veterans Education participants who transferred to the Montgomery GI Bill program. Supplementary educational assistance, Post-Vietnam Era Veterans Education converters, reservists, and the National Call to Service Program are financed by payments from Department of Defense.
The following table shows a caseload and cost comparison for these beneficiaries under existing legislation.

An allowance, up to a maximum of $11,000, is provided to certain service-disabled veterans and servicepersons toward the purchase price of an automobile. Adaptive equipment and the maintenance and replacement of such equipment is also provided.

Specially Adapted Housing Grants.—Specially adapted housing grants, up to a maximum of $63,780, are provided to certain severely disabled veterans. Veterans who suffer service-connected blindness or who have lost the use of both upper extremities can receive up to $12,756.

Tuition Assistance.—Public Law 106-398, enacted October 30, 2000, allows the military services to pay up to 100 percent of tuition and expenses charged by a school for service members. If a service department pays less than 100 percent, a service member eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill Active-duty (MGIB) or the Post 9-11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) can elect to receive VA benefits for all or a portion of the remaining expenses. Public Law 108-454 established a program that provides availability of education benefits for payment for national admissions exams and national exams for credit at institutions of higher education.

The National Exams.—The benefit allows VA to reimburse for the fee charged for national tests for admission to institutions of higher learning and national tests providing an opportunity for course credit at institutions of higher learning.

Licensing and Certification Test Payments.—Under Public Law 106-419, veterans and other eligible persons may receive up to $2,000 to pay fees required for civilian occupational licensing and certification examinations needed to enter, maintain, or advance in employment in a vocation or profession, effective March 1, 2001.

National Call to Service.—The 2003 National Defense Authorization Act directs Department of Defense to offer an active duty enlistment option of 15 months plus training time to facilitate interest in National Service. Program participants will be given the opportunity to select one of the following incentives: a $5,000 enlistment bonus, repayment of student loans up to $18,000, or one of two education allowances.

The insurance business line administers six life insurance programs, including two trust funds, two public enterprise funds, a trust revolving fund, and Veterans' Mortgage Life Insurance (VMLI), and supervises four additional programs for the benefit of servicepersons, veterans, and their beneficiaries through contracts with a commercial company. All programs are operated on a commercial basis, to the extent possible, consistent with all applicable statutes. The insurance appropriation is the supplemental funding mechanism for the following Government life insurance activities: National Service Life Insurance (NSLI); Service-Disabled Veterans Insurance Fund (S-DVI); and Veterans' Mortgage Life Insurance.

National Service Life Insurance.—Payments are made to the NSLI fund for certain World War II veterans for: (a) extra hazards of service; (b) gratuitous insurance granted to certain persons unable to apply for National Service Life Insurance; and (c) death claims on policies under the waiver of a premium while the insured was on active duty.

Payment to Service-Disabled Veterans Insurance Fund.—Payments are made to the S-DVI fund to supplement the premiums and other receipts of the fund in amounts necessary to pay claims on insurance policies issued to veterans with service-connected disabilities.

Veterans' Mortgage Life Insurance.—Payments are made to mortgage holders under this program, which provides mortgage protection life insurance to veterans who have received a grant for specially adapted housing due to severe disabilities. The general decline in the number of policies and the amount of insurance in force is expected to continue in 2011 as indicated in the following table.

The Insurance Act of 1951 established the Service-Disabled Veterans Insurance (S-DVI) program for veterans with service-connected disabilities. S-DVI is open to veterans who separated from the service on or after April 25, 1951. This fund finances the payment of claims on existing life insurance policies and remains open for new issues at standard rates to veterans having service-connected disabilities.

Operating costs

Death claims.—Represents payments to designated beneficiaries.

All other.—Represents payments to policyholders who surrender their policies for their cash value and hold endowment policies which have matured.

Capital investment.—A policyholder may borrow up to 94 percent of the value of his or her policy.

Payments to General Operating Expenses (GOE).—Represents the administrative costs of claims processing and account maintenance.
The trend in the number and amount of policies in force is indicated in the following table.

POLICIES AND INSURANCE IN FORCE


2009 actual 2010 est. 2011 est.

Number of policies 202,110 210,037 217,404
Insurance in force (dollars in millions) $2,054 $2,160 $2,240

Financing.—Operations are financed from premiums and other receipts. Additional funds are received by transfer from the Veterans Insurance and Indemnities appropriation, instead of direct appropriations to this fund.

Operating results and financial condition.—Since premium and other receipts are insufficient to cover operations, the fund continues to project liabilities in excess of assets. The deficit is expected to reach an estimated $856 million by September 30, 2011.

This fund finances the payment of group life insurance premiums to private insurance companies under the Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) Act of 1965, as amended. SGLI is a program for servicemembers on active duty, ready reservists, members of the National Guard, members of the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Public Health Service, cadets and midshipmen of the four service academies, and members of the Reserve Officer Training Corps. SGLI coverage is available in $50,000 increments up to the maximum of $400,000. Veterans' Group Life Insurance (VGLI) is a program of post-separation insurance which allows service members to convert their SGLI coverage to renewable term insurance. Family Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (FSGLI) is a program extended to the spouses and dependent children of members insured under the SGLI program. FSGLI provides up to a maximum of $100,000 of insurance coverage for spouses, not to exceed the amount of SGLI the insured member has in force, and $10,000 of free coverage for dependent children. Spousal coverage is issued in increments of $10,000.

The Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance Traumatic Injury Protection Program (TSGLI) became effective December 1, 2005. TSGLI provides for payment between $25,000 and $100,000 (depending on the type of injury) to any member of the uniformed services covered by SGLI who sustains a traumatic injury that results in certain serious losses.

As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990, this account records, for these programs, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans obligated and loan guarantees committed in 1992 and beyond, (including modifications of direct loans or loan guarantees that resulted from obligations or commitments in any year), as well as for the administrative expenses of these programs. The subsidy amounts are estimated on a net present value basis.

Veterans housing program account.—The housing program helps eligible veterans, active duty personnel, surviving spouses, and members of the Reserves and National Guard purchase homes by substituting the Federal Government's guaranty for a down payment that might otherwise be required when purchasing a home. Under 38 U.S.C. 3703 and Public Law 110-389 501, the guaranty amount from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2011 for a borrower with full entitlement is as follows:
(a) 50 percent for loans of $45,000 or less;$22,500 for loans greater than $45,000, but no more than $56,250;
(b) The lesser of $36,000 or 40 percent of the loan amount for loans greater than $56,250, but not more than $144,000;
(c) 25 percent for loans in excess of $144,000 up to $417,000 or;
(d) The lesser of 25 percent of the loan amount or the maximum guaranty amount for loans greater than $417,000.
The maximum guaranty amount varies depending on the location of the property.
1) For all locations in the United States other than Alaska, Guam, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the maximum guaranty amount is the greater of 25 percent of (a) $417,000 or (b) 125 percent of the area median price for a single-family residence, but in no case will the guaranty exceed $273,656.25.
2) In Alaska, Guam, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the maximum guaranty amount is the greater of 25 percent of (a) $625,500 or (b) 125 percent of the area median price for a single-family residence, but in no case will the guaranty exceed $410,484.38.
3) The maximum guaranty amounts set forth above will be adjusted annually. The next adjustment will affect loans closed on or after January 1, 2010.
This appropriation provides for the corporate leadership and operational support to VA's housing business line.
The housing program facilitates the extension of private capital, on more liberal terms than generally available to nonveterans, to assist veterans and servicepersons in obtaining housing credit, and assist veterans in retaining their homes during periods of temporary economic difficulty through intensive supplemental mortgage loan servicing.

Guaranteed transitional housing loans for homeless veterans.—Established as a pilot project by the Veterans Benefits Improvement Act of 1998, Public Law 105-368, this program will not execute any new loans. The existing loan will continue to be serviced within the financing account and no further funds will be required from the program account.

The Native American Veterans Housing Loan program provides direct loans to veterans living on trust lands under 38 U.S.C. chapter 37, section 3761. These loans are available to purchase, construct, or improve homes to be occupied as the veteran's residence. This program began as a pilot in 1993 and was made permanent on June 15, 2006 through Public Law 109-233.

The Vocational Rehabilitation Loan Program provides additional funding assistance to cover the costs of subsistence, tuition, books, supplies, and equipment in conjunction with service connected disability benefits provided to Veterans participating in VA's Vocational Rehabilitation and Counseling Program as authorized by chapter 31 of title 38, United States Code. Repayment of these loans is made in monthly installments, without interest, through deductions from future payments of compensation, pension, subsistence allowance, educational assistance allowance, or retired pay.

Note.—Department of Veterans Affairs insurance policy loans are not an extension of Federal credit. Credit schedules previously shown for this account have been discontinued.
This fund was established in 1940. It is for the World War II servicemen's and veterans' insurance program. Over 22 million policies were issued under this program. Activity of the fund reflects a declining claim workload. The trend in the number and amount of policies in force is shown as follows:

POLICIES AND INSURANCE IN FORCE


2009 actual 2010 est. 2011 est.

Number of policies 834,026 745,146 659,376
Insurance in force (dollars in millions) $9,790 $8,874 $7,980

This fund is operated on a commercial basis to the extent possible. The income of the fund is derived from premium receipts, interest on investments, and payments which are made to the fund from the Veterans Insurance and Indemnities appropriation.

Assets of the fund, which are largely invested in special interest-bearing Treasury securities and in policy loans, are expected to decrease from an estimated $8,546 million as of September 30, 2010 to $7,854 million as of September 30, 2011. The actuarial estimate of policy obligations as of September 30, 2011, totals $7,613 million, leaving a balance of $241 million for contingency reserves.

This fund was established in 1919 to receive premiums and pay claims on insurance issued under the provisions of the War Risk Insurance Act. The general decline in the activity of the fund is indicated in the following table:

POLICIES AND INSURANCE IN FORCE


2009 actual 2010 est. 2011 est.

Number of policies 4,671 3,800 2,970
Insurance in force (dollars in millions) $14 $11 $8

The fund is operated on a commercial basis to the extent possible. The income of the fund is derived from interest on investments. Effective January 1, 1983, premiums were discontinued because reserves held in the fund were adequate to meet future liabilities of the program.

Assets of the fund, which are largely invested in interest-bearing securities and policy loans, are estimated to decrease from $22 million as of September 30, 2010, to $17.5 million as of September 30, 2011, as an increasing number of policies mature through death or disability. The actuarial evaluation of policy obligations as of September 30, 2011, totals $16.8 million, leaving a balance of $0.7 million for contingency reserves.
