“My family member is a veteran and goes to the VA for their medical care. Do his/her VA benefits cover Adult Day Health Care?”
The short answer is, “It Depends.” According to the VA on their website (https://www.va.gov/geriatrics/Guide/LongTermCare/Adult_Day_Health_Care.asp#) (under the tab “Am I eligible?”) it states the following:
“Since Adult Day Health Care is part of the VHA Standard Medical Benefits Package, all enrolled Veterans are eligible IF they meet the clinical need for the service and it is available.”
They do note that it is helpful to contact your VA social worker/case manager to complete applicable forms, and you should certainly reach out to them first to ensure that you are applicable.
Regardless, we have had the honor of taking care of many veterans who have utilized VA benefits.
