Will VA cover nursing home care in non-VA contract facilities?
Published 06/03/2004 04:01 PM | Updated 02/28/2011 02:21 PMDo VA benefits cover nursing home care that is not provided in a VA facility?
No. VA can pay for care only in nursing homes that participate in its contract program. Nursing homes that do not participate in its contract program are not covered by VA. Veterans and their families should contact the nearest VA facility for information on Long Term Care (LTC). They may also obtain information on Health Benefits at 1-877-222-8387 or on the Internet at http://www.va.gov/elig
