Prior Provisions

A prior chapter 833, consisting of sections 8251 to 8263, related to enlistments, prior to renumbering as chapter 913 of this title.

Amendments

2018Pub. L. 115–232, div. A, title VIII, §807(e)(2)(A), (f)(1), Aug. 13, 2018, 132 Stat. 1837, 1838, redesignated chapter 563 of this title as this chapter and items 6201 to 6203 as 8281 to 8283, respectively.

§8281. Members of the naval service in other United States hospitals

(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.

(Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 387, §6201; Pub. L. 85–861, §36B(19), Sept. 2, 1958, 72 Stat. 1571; Pub. L. 96–513, title V, §513(14), Dec. 12, 1980, 94 Stat. 2932; renumbered §8281, Pub. L. 115–232, div. A, title VIII, §807(b)(11), Aug. 13, 2018, 132 Stat. 1832, 1835.)

6201(a), (b) 24 U.S.C. 31. Jan. 19, 1929, ch. 85, 45 Stat. 1090.
6201(c) 34 U.S.C. 854f. June 25, 1938, ch. 690, §207, 52 Stat. 1180.
  34 U.S.C. 854 (note). July 9, 1952, ch. 608, §803 (3d sentence), 66 Stat. 505.

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, §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omitted because the Administrator of Veterans' Affairs held in Decision Number 571 (July 27, 1944) that R.S. 4813 was repealed by implication.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 §6086 of this title.

(Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 387, §6202; renumbered §8282, Pub. L. 115–232, div. A, title VIII, §807(b)(11), Aug. 13, 2018, 132 Stat. 1835.)

6202 34 U.S.C. 595. R.S. 1551; July 1, 1916, ch. 209, §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.

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 medicines, when the member was in a duty status at the time he 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.

(Aug. 10, 1956, ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 387, §6203; renumbered §8283, Pub. L. 115–232, div. A, title VIII, §807(b)(11), Aug. 13, 2018, 132 Stat. 1835.)
