VA to Add Five TBI Related Illnesses

The Department of Veterans Affairs is publishing a proposed regulation in the Federal Register that would change its rules to add five diagnosable illnesses which are secondary to service-connected Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Comments on the proposed rule will be accepted over the next 60 days. A final regulation will be published after consideration of all comments received. The proposed rule and information on how to comment is available on the Federal Register website. Specific information about the Defense and Veteran Brain Injury Center is available at www.dvbic.org. Information about Gulf War and VA's services and programs are available at VA's Gulf War Exposures webpage at www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/gulfwar/hazardous_exposures.asp.
