Sec. 6201. Members of the naval service in other United States

hospitals

-STATUTE-

(a) When appropriate naval hospital facilities are unavailable,

the Secretary of the Navy may provide for the care and treatment of

members of the naval service, entitled to treatment in naval

hospitals, in other United States hospitals, if the agencies

controlling the other hospitals consent. Expenses incident to such

care and treatment are chargeable to the same appropriation as

would be chargeable for care and treatment in a naval hospital.

(b) The deduction authorized by section 4812 of the Revised

Statutes (24 U.S.C. 16) shall be made from accounts of members

hospitalized under this section.

-------------------------------

In subsection (a) the words ''members of the naval service'' are

substituted for the words ''naval patients on the active or retired

list and members of the Naval Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve''.

The definition of ''member of the naval service'' makes the terms

coextensive. Reference to St. Elizabeths Hospital is omitted in

view of Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1946, Sec. 201, 60 Stat. 1098,

which transferred the functions of that hospital pertaining to

members of the naval service to the Secretary of the Navy. For the

purposes of this section, St. Elizabeths is now in the same

category as other United States hospitals.

In subsection (b) reference to R.S. 4813 (24 U.S.C. 6) is omitted

because the Administrator of Veterans' Affairs held in Decision

Number 571 (July 27, 1944) that R.S. 4813 was repealed by

implication. Since this decision is binding on the Secretary of

the Navy (see 38 U.S.C. 11a-2), the deductions from pension

accounts authorized by R.S. 4813 may not be made.

In subsection (c) the words ''each retired enlisted member of the

naval service'' are substituted for the words ''retired enlisted

men'' and the words ''is entitled to'' are substituted for the

words ''shall receive'' to conform to terminology used throughout

this title. The words ''equal in value to the hospital ration''

are substituted for the words ''prescribed by law for enlisted men

of the Regular Navy'' to show that the amount of the allowance is

the value of the hospital ration. The words ''for each day'' are

inserted to make it clear that the ration allowance is credited on

a daily basis. The words ''under this section'' are substituted

for the words ''in a Federal hospital in accordance with law''

because this section is the only authority for the hospitalization

of members of the Fleet Reserve and Fleet Marine Corps Reserve and

retired enlisted members of the naval service in Federal hospitals,

other than naval hospitals, under conditions entitling the members

to a ration allowance. The subsistence of a member of the Fleet

Reserve or Fleet Marine Corps Reserve or a retired enlisted member

of the naval service while hospitalized in naval hospitals is

covered by Sec. 6086 of this title.

AMENDMENTS

1980 - Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 96-513 substituted ''section 4812 of

the Revised Statutes (24 U.S.C. 16)'' for ''section 16 of title

24''.

1958 - Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 85-861 repealed subsec. (c) which

related to a ration allowance for members of the Fleet Reserve of

the Fleet Marine Corps Reserve and retired enlisted members of the

naval service.

EFFECTIVE DATE OF 1980 AMENDMENT

Amendment by Pub. L. 96-513 effective Dec. 12, 1980, see section

701(b)(3) of Pub. L. 96-513, set out as a note under section 101 of

this title.

1, 39 Stat. 309.

-------------------------------

The words ''that * * * will provide the most beneficial

treatment'' are substituted for the words ''best calculated to

promise a restoration of reason'' for clarity. The second sentence

of 34 U.S.C. 595 is omitted as superseded. It provided a method by

which the Secretary of the Navy, in his discretion, could

compensate other agencies for expenses involved in hospitalizing

insane naval patients. Other provisions of law, principally 24

U.S.C. 31, 31 U.S.C. 686, and 37 U.S.C. 284, and regulations,

principally Executive Order 10122, of April 14, 1950, establish the

method currently used.

Sec. 6203. Emergency medical treatment: reimbursement for expense

-STATUTE-

The Secretary of the Navy shall prescribe regulations for

reimbursing members of the naval service for expenses of emergency

or necessary medical service, including hospitalization and

received the service and the service was not available from a

Federal source. For the purpose of this section, a member on leave

or liberty is in a duty status.
