United States Department Of Veteran Affairs Key Developments

NeuroSigma and the U.S. Veterans Administration Enter into Cooperative Research and Development Agreement

NeuroSigma, Inc. announced that it has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Veterans Affairs (VA) for a clinical trial to evaluate the benefits of non-invasive, external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a Phase I clinical trial. The Monarch eTNS System is composed of a cell-phone sized pulse generator and a single-use patch that is applied to the forehead. Signals are transmitted through lead wires to the patch in order to stimulate the trigeminal nerve in the skin of the forehead; triggering these nerve fibers sends signals to targeted brain regions and changes the activity there. Patients may conveniently self-administer the Monarch eTNS System at home and typically use the device while sleeping.

VA Releases Latest Facility-Level Patient Access Data

VA released the latest update of facility-level patient access data. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has reached out to over 217,000 Veterans to get them off wait lists and into clinics. VA has decreased the number of Veterans on the Electronic Waiting List (EWL) 40% within a two month period. More than 22,000 Veterans have received accelerated appointments and have been removed from the EWL.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. Reaches $614 Million Settlement with the U.S. Departments of Justice, Housing and Urban Development, and Veterans Affairs, and Federal Housing Administration

JPMorgan Chase & Co. announced that it has reached a settlement with the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) resolving claims relating to the Firm's participation in federal mortgage insurance programs overseen by FHA, HUD and VA. The settlement represents another significant step in the Firm's efforts to put historical mortgage-related issues behind it. Under the settlement, JPMorgan Chase will pay $614 million in cash and agree to enhance its quality control program for loans that are submitted in the future to FHA's Direct Endorsement Lender program. This settlement also releases the Firm from False Claims Act, FIRREA and other civil and administrative liability for FHA and VA insurance claims that have been paid to JPMorgan Chase since 2002 through the date of the settlement. The company believes it is fully reserved for the settlement and any financial impact related to exposure on future claims is not expected to be significant.
