VA HIKES MILEAGE REIMBURSEMENT
November 21, 2008
 


The mileage reimbursement rate for travel to medical treatment facilities operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs is now 41.5 cents a mile -- up from 28.5 percent. Veterans with service-connected disabilities, who receive pensions, or meet low-income criteria are eligible for the increase, which took effect Nov. 17. The deductibles for certain mileage reimbursements, however, will remain at $7.77 for one-way and $15.54 for round-trip visits, and capped at $46.62 per calendar month. On Jan. 9, these deductibles will drop to $3 for one-way trips, $6 for round drips, and $16 per calendar month. In cases of hardship, the fees may be waived altogether.
