Veterans Affairs Department
Schedule for Rating Disabilities; Evaluation of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ,
35711–35712 [2010–15169] [TEXT] [PDF]
AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.
ACTION: Proposed rule.
SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its schedule for Rating Disabilities by revising the evaluation criterion for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to provide a 100-percent evaluation for any veteran with service-connected ALS. This change is necessary to adequately compensate veterans who suffer from this progressive, untreatable, and fatal disease.
This change is intended to provide a total disability rating for any veteran with service-connected ALS.
