VA/DOD HEALTH CARE: More Guidance Needed to Implement CHAMPUS Funded Sharing Agreements
In February 1994, after nearly 3 years of negotiation, VA and DOD agreed on a framework for VA to treat CHAMPUS-eligible beneficiaries and receive reimbursement from CHAMPUS funds.

DOD wanted VA hospitals to be subject tothe same requirements as civilian hospitals under CHAMPUS. Disagreements continued until the Chairman, House Committee on Veterans Affairs, intervened.
