Status message

There are 14 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 38 CFR 17. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 17.165 Emergency outpatient dental treatment.
When outpatient emergency dental care is provided, as a humanitarian service, to individuals who have no established eligibility for outpatient dental care, the treatment will be restricted to the alleviation of pain or extreme discomfort, or the remediation of a dental condition which is determined to be endangering life or health. The provision of emergency treatment to persons found ineligible for dental care will not entitle the applicant to further dental treatment. Individuals provided emergency dental care who are found to be ineligible for such care will be billed.
