VHA DIRECTIVE 2008-003
      #244428 - 02/09/09 02:04 PM

Department of Veterans Affairs VHA DIRECTIVE 2008-003
Veterans Health Administration
January 22, 2008

TREATMENT OF ANTIRETROVIRAL-INDUCED FACIAL
LIPOATROPHY IN HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS
(HIV)-INFECTED PATIENTS

on page 2 of this directive the following is a policy statement:
"3. POLICY: It is VHA policy that eligible veterans with AIFL [antiretroviral-induced facial lipoatrophy] may undergo treatment for this disorder at VHA facilities, or be referred by VHA on a cost basis to outside facilities for such treatment, if it would improve the patient's mental health."

I just received treatment at my local VA Hospital for lipoatrophy using Radiesse. I'm very happy with the results.

For those veterans with HIV who get care from the VA and feel this would help, I would encourage you to speak with your ID doctor.
