                Office of the Secretary
                32 CFR Part 199
                Double Coverage
                AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Department of Defense (DoD).
                ACTION: Technical amendment.
                SUMMARY: This technical amendment is being published to correct an
                error that was codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in
                2003. A paragraph was inadvertently duplicated in 2003 and is now being
                DATES: This technical amendment is effective May 4, 2020.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Toppings, 571-372-0485.
                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 30, 2003 (68 FR 23030-23034), the
                Department of Defense published a final rule titled ``TRICARE Program;
                Eligibility and Payment Procedures for Civilian Health and Medical
                Program of the Uniformed Services Beneficiaries Age 65 and Over,''
                which amended 32 CFR part 199.
                 On page 23032, an amendatory instruction requested to amend Sec.
                199.8 by ``redesignating paragraph (c)(5) as (c)(6) and the second
                paragraph (c)(4) as (c)(5).''
                 The wording of this amendatory instruction led to a codification
                error which is still present in the CFR.
                 In 32 CFR 199.8, paragraphs (c)(5) and (c)(6) contain identical
                text. Only one of the paragraphs should remain in the CFR. Therefore,
                DoD is publishing this technical amendment to remove paragraph (c)(6)
                from 32 CFR 199.8.
                 It has been determined that publication of this CFR amendment for
                public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public
                interest since it is correcting a technical error.
                 This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866,
                ``Regulatory Planning and Review.'' Therefore, E.O. 13771, ``Reducing
                Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs,'' does not apply.
                List of Subjects in 32 CFR Part 199
                 Claims, Dental health, Health care, Health insurance, Individuals
                with disabilities, Mental health, Mental health parity, Military
                 Accordingly, 32 CFR part 199 is amended as follows:
                PART 199--[AMENDED]
                1. The authority citation for part 199 continues to read as follows:

                Sec. 199.8 [Amended]
                2. Amend Sec. 199.8 by removing paragraph (c)(6).
