Regulatory Development


As is the case for many offices within VDH, the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity is often tasked with developing or revising regulations. A regulation is a general rule governing people's rights or conduct that is promulgated by a state agency and has the force of law. Agencies promulgate regulations in order to administer and enforce specific state laws and to implement general agency objectives. Each regulation must be authorized by law and each chapter of the Virginia Administrative Code (VAC) contains a single regulation. The Virginia Administrative Code (VAC) is the official source for Virginia's regulations and consists of approximately 1,250 chapters. The Office of Minority Health and Health Equity has been involved with the development and promulgation of regulations in the following areas:

12 VAC 5-20 - Regulations for the Conduct of Human Research

12 VAC 5-407 - Regulations for the Submission of Health Maintenance Organization Quality of Care Performance Information

12 VAC 5-507 - Guidelines for General Assembly Nursing Scholarships and Loan Repayment Program Requiring Service in a Long-Term-Care Facility

12 VAC 5-508 - Regulations Governing the Virginia Physician Loan Repayment Program

12 VAC 5-510 - Guidelines for General Assembly Nursing Scholarships

12 VAC 5-520 - Regulations Governing the State Dental Scholarship Program

12 VAC 5-530 - Regulations Governing the Virginia Medical Scholarship Program

12 VAC 5-540 - Rules and Regulations for the Identification of Medically Underserved Areas in Virginia
