The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) adopts as final, with no changes, a proposed rule amending the definition of domiciliary care to encompass VA’s Mental Health Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program (MH RRTP). This rule aligns regulations with VA’s administrative decision in 2005 to designate MH RRTP as a type of domiciliary care. We also proposed clarifying that domiciliary care provides temporary, not permanent, residence to affected veterans. We provided a 60-day comment period on this proposed rule and received 4 comments, all of which were generally supportive of the proposed changes. We make no changes based on public comments and adopt the proposed rule as final.
