Expand Access to Long-Term Care Options
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is currently restricted from paying room and board fees at assisted living facilities—a policy that precludes veterans from utilizing this long-term care option. The Expanding Veterans’ Options for Long Term Care Act (H.R. 1815/S. 495) would create a pilot program for eligible veterans to receive assisted living care paid for by the VA. The pilot program would be conducted at six Veterans Integrated Services Networks (VISNs) nationwide, including at least two program sites located in rural or highly rural areas and two State Veterans Homes. 

PVA Position:

Congress must pass H.R. 1815/S. 495, the Expanding Veterans' Options for Long Term Care Act, which would give veterans access to assisted living care while allowing them to have autonomy.
