VA benefits are health care benefits for veterans provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The benefits plan includes many different health care services, such as preventative services, diagnostic and treatment services, and hospitalization.
In some cases, VA benefits can even cover nursing home and other long-term care options.
Your VA Benefits
Many veterans are unaware of the substantial assistance available to them through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For this reason, countless veterans fail to fully utilize their benefits each year.
If you are a veteran, or the spouse of a veteran,
you may be eligible to receive monetary assistance to defray the cost of health care expenses for yourself or a dependent.
Covered services may include:
Preventative care services
Outpatient diagnostic and treatment services (including mental health and substance abuse treatment)
Inpatient diagnostic and treatment services
Long-term care (including nursing home care for some veterans)
