NCAL Endorses Expanding Veterans’ Options for LTC Act

Bipartisan legislation was recently introduced to expand veterans’ access to assisted living services. The Expanding Veterans’ Options for Long Term Care Act would create a pilot program for eligible veterans to receive assisted living care paid for by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The pilot program would be conducted at six Veterans Integrated Services Networks nationwide, including at least two program sites located in rural or highly rural areas and two state veterans homes.

NCAL has announced that it supports this bill and will keep members apprised of any updates around it. More on the bill can be found in this press statement.​
