TREA Members: Please Help Us Support The Caregivers Act

TREA  has long endorsed H.R. 5701, the Care for the Veteran Caregiver Act of 2020. We have urged the earliest consideration by the House Veterans Affairs Committee, including a legislative hearing, mark-up, and Committee vote. In February, we joined Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) and Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) who co-sponsored the bill, at a press conference alongside other VSOs, caregivers, and veterans.

Specifically, the bill:
- Extends the stipend payments to and CHAMPVA eligibility for
caregivers to at least 180 days after the death of an eligible veteran.
- Eliminates unnecessary and redundant re-evaluation requirements for veterans who require the most significant levels of care.
- Standardizes nationally the initial and annual eligibility evaluation process.

Please help us by contacting your Representatives to let them know of your support by clicking the button below:
