Due To An Error By Agency, Veterans Were Placed In Rest Homes Even Though Facilities Are Not Authorized Placements For VA Medical Care Or Reimbursement
WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 17, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — In a letter to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric Shinseki, U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) today urged the agency to allow 23 Connecticut veterans residing in various state rest homes to stay in their current facilities at the VA’s expense until the agency can determine suitable options for their future care. As a result of an error by the VA, the veterans were erroneously placed in rest homes in 2007, even though these facilities are not authorized VA placements for veterans in need of full-time medical care. The letter urges the VA to take no further action until the housing needs of the veterans are assessed. Since many of the veterans were previously homeless, the letter urges the VA to determine their eligibility for additional VA care and housing services. Text of the letter is attached and below: more »
