Payers of Long-Term Services and Supports for Veterans

The United States’ population of older adults is growing and so, too, is the need for increased access to and investment in long-term services and supports (LTSS). One challenge for Veterans and their families in accessing LTSS is determining what coverage is available to pay for those services.

Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) both financially support LTSS for Veterans who need them, as do external programs such as Medicaid or long-term care insurance. The Partnered Evidence-based Policy Resource Center (PEPReC) published a policy brief outlining the VBA, VHA and external programs available to Veterans and what their eligibility requirements are. Read the full brief here.

PEPReC, within the Veterans Health Administration and funded in large part by the Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI), is a team of health economists, health services and public health researchers, statistical programmers, and policy analysts who engage policymakers to improve Veterans’ lives through evidence-driven innovations using advanced quantitative methods.
