VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION

                    ________________________________
 
2914. USE OF VA FORM 10-10EZR AND SIGNATURE OF REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN 
VA FORMS




Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant. Major status under 5 USC 801 is 
undetermined.

Legal Authority: 38 USC 501; 38 USC 1721

CFR Citation: 38 CFR 17.36

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This document proposes to permit already-enrolled veterans to 
use a new, shorter form when they wish to update their enrollment 
information previously reported. The new, shorter form will decrease 
the information collection burden on veterans and will save them time 
when they are updating their financial information for VA. This 
document also proposes an amendment to establish who can sign VA 
administrative health care forms when the veteran is unable to do so. 
Finally, this document proposes to remove the photocopy of VA Form 10-
10EZ, Application for Health Benefits, from parts 17 and 58 of 38 CFR.
