Cost of VA medical care to ineligible persons is high and difficult to recover : report to the Honorable William Proxmire, United States Senate by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GAO reviewed the extent to which the Veterans Administration (VA) has strengthened its administrative controls to preclude providing medical care to persons who were found not to be properly entitled to veterans' benefits. Despite recommendations previously made by GAO to improve eligibility determinations, VA has done little to prevent or minimize the abuse of medical benefits by ineligibles. Individuals who are not legally entitled to VA benefits receive medical care in VA facilities before and after VA determines they are ineligible. During a 27-month attempt to collect $15 million in costs incurred as a result of providing medical care to ineligible persons, VA collected $1.2 million and wrote off $6.5 million of the remaining debts as uncollectible. A major cause of this problem of providing care to ineligibles is the VA policy of not denying care to individuals pending positive determination of their legal entitlement to VA benefits. No centrally maintained file exists on individuals who have been determined ineligible for VA benefits. An improved information and notification system is needed to reduce the incidence of ineligible medical care and to eliminate duplicative paperwork in determining eligibility. VA does not have an effective system for billing and collecting debts from ineligible persons who receive medical care or an accurate account of all the care provided to ineligibles. VA has not taken collection actions on all of the moneys it is owed and, where such actions have been taken, it has failed to send out timely bills which has decreased the likelihood of its recovering the costs of care provided. Recently enacted legislation may not significantly improve VA collection of medical debts since many ineligibles are transient with limited financial resources
Legislation plus aggressive action needed to strengthen VA's debt collection : report to the honorable William Proxmire, United States Senate by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GAO was asked to study the feasibility of resuming collection action on education assistance overpayments written off as uncollectible by the Veterans Administration (VA) through the use of generally accepted private-sector debt collection practices. Special attention was given to the reporting of delinquent and terminated accounts to commercial credit bureaus as a means of motivating veterans to repay their debts to the government. GAO obtained a random sample of commercial credit reports on veterans whose accounts had been terminated as uncollectible and found that most of the veterans were employed, had an established history of paying their private-sector creditors, and had private-sector lines of credit equal to or greater than the amounts owed to VA. Several factors have hampered VA debt collection efforts and contributed to a large volume of educational assistance overpayment accounts terminated in recent years. GAO believes that the most significant problem is that veterans have been able to ignore the demands of VA for repayment with little or no fear of the adverse actions which would normally result from failure to pay debts owed to private-sector creditors
OPM needs to provide better guidance to agencies for approving government-funded college courses for employees : report to William Proxmire, United States Senate by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal agencies pay for a wide range of college courses. Agencies vary in their judgments of the types of training-related costs they will pay, whether college courses can be taken during duty time, and restrictions on the number and types of courses which employees may take. In the four activities which GAO visited, most employees and supervisors interviewed believed that the college courses which the employees took were necessary for performing agency functions; however, GAO did not see how some of the courses taken by employees related to their official duties. Although the Government Employees Training Act requires government-financed college courses to be related to employees' official duties, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) definition of official duties is not specific. Additional guidance is needed, particularly as the act relates to future duties. None of the activities visited had systematic procedures to determine whether the agencies are benefiting from paying for employees to attend courses. At the four activities, employees' leaving their agencies soon after completing courses did not appear to be a problem. Three of the four activities visited had also paid organizational dues during fiscal year (FY) 1980. Although most of the memberships were purchased in the names of the activities, one activity purchased two memberships for individuals. At the four activities, memberships in the Toastmasters clubs were not purchased during FY 1980
