Two years to the MONTH, VA notifies us of compensation approval. There will be backpay; some of which I would like see go into hiring care til enrollment into a VA LTC program can be finalized.
While these long-awaited-not-yet-delivered funds were winding their way through red tape, we were forced into applying for Medicaid to cover nursing home custodial care.
The company for which I work has Medicare and Medicaid as customers. We help them analyze their data to identify areas for improvement of care, fraud, waste, and abuse. So from that perspective, now that VA has stepped up - or is about to - I'm anxious to get the ball rolling for relieving the system of one patient.
Re-certification is in September; if the VA funds kick in before then, what happens?
