Federal Court Orders VA to Provide Transparency of Its Decisions & Payments to Thousands of Veterans

On September 1, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) ordered the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide additional measures of transparency in its ongoing readjudications and payments to tens of thousands of veterans entitled to reimbursement of emergency medical expenses in the class action Wolfe v. McDonough. The Court ordered VA to provide copies of its readjudication decisions to National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) and pro bono counsel at Sidley Austin LLP, who together serve as counsel for the class of veterans who have applied to the VA for reimbursement of their emergency medical expenses incurred at non-VA facilities that are not covered by the veteran’s private insurance. VA must also provide an explanation of its efforts to find veterans who are owed reimbursements but who VA claims it has been unable to locate. [more]
