Introduction As part of the strategy to provide high quality healthcare to Veterans, VA facilities are authorized to pay for eligible travel expenses related to their healthcare. The Beneficiary Travel (BT) application system is a module within the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA). This module provides automated features to issue beneficiary travel pay. Travel reimbursement is provided by designated categories for eligible Veterans, and to non-employee attendants who are eligible for reimbursement. ********************************************************************************* Bene Travel Account entries must be reviewed and modified prior to use *********************************************************************************** Inactivating Accounts for Mileage Claims Main Menu: BENE Travel Account File Enter/Edit New rules must be followed for entries in the Bene Travel Account file. BT supervisors or ADPAC’s must complete the following steps before the BT Enhancement patch is installed: Inactivate all accounts for mileage claims that are not of Type 4 (all other) or Type 5 (C&P), or, if a site prefers to keep an account that is not Type 4 or 5 active, they can change that account type to 4 or 5. A site can have more than one account of each type 4 and type 5 but the default will be the first active entry detected by the system. A site can have only one active special mode account type (Type 3). It must contain the exact characters “Special Mode – Non-Emergen” in the text for the account type (a 3-digit account code can be before or after the required text). All other type 3 account entries must be inactivated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
