Abstract : This Instruction reissues DoD Instruction 6025.8, dated July 21, 1986, to implement policy and update responsibilities and procedures with the Department of Defense on the APV, in accordance with the authority contained in DoD Directive 5136.1. Establishment of the APV system eliminates the requirements for admission and inpatient care for certain health care services. In addition, the APV system will allow better comparability of utilization and cost data between military and civilian sources of care.
