Modification of a VA rule regarding abortion services (including abortion counseling) to recipients as well as CHAMPVA beneficiaries. Comment period on this interim final rule lasts until Oct 11, 2022.

Federalism Implications

This interim final rule by the department of veteran's affairs removes its exclusions on abortion/abortion counseling from its medical benefits package for veterans and CHAMPVA recipients. This would allow beneficiaries to receive abortion services regardless of whether or not the state they are residing in has restrictions against it under certain circumstances.
