The private pay rule for two years before Medicaid is facility policy, not a Medicaid or Medicare rule.

yes there are VA benefits that cover long term care/nursing homes. The VA has its own nursing homes too. Unless it’s changed, the nursing home does have to be VA-contracted in order for the VA to pay for it. You should contact your local VA for more information.

Sorry you did not receive a timely answer. I have no knowledge of funds for Veterans in Assisted Living. I know either Medicare or Medicaid has a rule that one needs to live in AL for 2 years before they will pay.

Your best bet is to call your local VA or even go to their website and do a search. That way you’re getting the real scoop.
