Veterans Nursing Home Admissions

Nancy Leveille and Richard Herrick in Clinical & Quality


NYSHFA staff met with the NYS Division of Veteran’s Affairs benefits counselors recently and they asked us to share some information about Veteran Nursing Homes; Federal Veteran’s Pension; Aid and Assistance; “Special Pensions”; The Blind Annuity Program; and eyeglass, hearing aid and medications benefits. Attached is a letter from the Veteran’s Affairs Division that can assist you in helping your veteran residents learn about their benefits. In addition, this information can also assist you and your staff with accessing benefits for qualified residents for any of the special programs while at your facility or as you are discharging them back to the community. For more information, contact the Veteran’s Benefits Counselor at 1-888-838-7697.
