VA to Save State Nursing Home Beds for Veterans

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Department of Veterans Affairs must make per diem payments to state nursing homes for care to veterans whether or not they have resided in the state home for 30 consecutive days, under a new emergency rule.
     The rule is to permit per diem payments to state homes for veterans who do not stay overnight, regardless of how long the veterans have resided at the state homes, so that the state homes will hold the veterans’ beds until the veterans return.
     The rule is effective Nov. 26, unless the VA receives a significant adverse comment by Oct. 29.
