Find and Access Home Health Care for Veterans

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers numerous programs to veterans and their families. Some of the most common programs include education and training programs and comprehensive health care benefits. One of the major programs offered under the health care benefits is home health care.

Gathering all the relevant documents and compiling the evidence to apply for this program is time-consuming and frustrating, especially if it is the veteran's first time. Most veterans have less knowledge about the application process or how to obtain service documents.

Luckily, DoNotPay has products and services that help veterans access the Home Health care benefit quickly and easily. Our Military Protect Product has been tailored to help veterans locate local VA service offices, access veteran benefits, and acquire service records. Read on to learn more about benefits and how to apply them using DoNotPay.

The VA Home Health Care Benefit

This VA benefit is available for veterans who require personal care services, those who are isolated, and those who need assistance with their daily living activities. In this program, an eligible veteran is allocated a home health aide to help them take care of themselves.

Those veterans who may want such assistance can apply for the benefits in their local veteran service office. To ensure that their applications are not rejected or denied, the veteran must produce enough evidence showing that they cannot perform their normal daily duties.

Also, to be eligible for this benefit, the veteran should have served in air service, naval or active military service and did not receive a dishonorable discharge. Some of the supporting documents that veterans must produce while applying for the benefit include:

  • Their Social Security numbers
  • Their military discharge papers, which include the DD214 form
  • Details of their insurance card
  • Current gross income and deductible expenses for the last year

How to Apply for the VA Home Health Care Benefits by Yourself

Eligible veterans can apply for this program through one of the following ways.

OnlineYou can apply for the VA Home Health Care Benefit online through VA's official website. The application process involves downloading and filing the VA form 10-10EZ. You or the party acting as your power of attorney should sign the form before sending it to Health Eligibility Center, 2957 Clairmont Rd., Suite 200 Atlanta, GA 30329.
Apply by PhoneYou can call VA toll-free hotline at 877-222-8387 to get assistance on applying for the Home Health Care program. The customer representatives are active from Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The major disadvantage of this method is the long customer service call times. This might happen when there are agent shortages or due to huge call volumes. You may be put on hold for a few hours, which can be frustrating.
Apply In-PersonYou can visit your nearest VA medical center or clinic and apply for the VA home health care benefit. In this process, you must download, fill in and sign the VA Form-EZ. This method is time and money-consuming, especially when making long trips to the VA clinics. Most of the veterans receiving this benefit are not physically fit, and visiting crowded clinics regularly would not be the best option.
