Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center
You have been identified as having received travel reimbursements for a visit to the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg WV. We want to take the opportunity to inform you of an upcoming change to our reimbursement policy which will impact payment for travel.
New regulation guidelines require the VA to go to cashless processes. The U.S. Department of Treasury EFT rule (31 CFR Part 208) requires Federal payments be made electronically. Payments to veterans such as beneficiary travel and patient funds will now be paid electronically rather than by check or cash from Agent Cashier. This means we will be collecting your bank information to process your Beneficiary travel via Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) in order for payments to be deposited directly into your account which takes about 5 business days for funds to be deposited in your account. EFT process is a safe, secure and accurate method and efficient method of processing payments. This is the same process used for other government checks such as Social Security, Compensation, Pensions, Tax refunds and private sector payments. We will begin implementation on Monday, August 26, 2013 to making payments by EFT for travel reimbursements. It is highly recommended that the EFT process be utilized as it provides the benefit for secure and prompt payments.
