Attached is the report to the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill for FY22. On page 58 (also posted below) you’ll find the section on HBOT. This language has been approved and passed out of the Senate Appropriations Committee, but has not yet passed the full Senate.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – The Committee continues to be supportive of alternative treatment options for veterans with PTSD or TBI. The Committee continues to be concerned about the lack of participation in the VA’s hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) demonstration project. The Committee recommends that the demonstration project continue until at least September 30, 2022, and encourages VA to examine altering the scope of the project to better research the efficacy of HBOT as a treatment for PTSD and TBI.”
