VA provides several types of home health care including:
  • Skilled home health care
  • Home health aide services
  • Homemaker services
  • Palliative care
  • Remote monitoring care

  • Hospice care

*The Veterans Choice Program (VCP) is a benefit that allows eligible Veterans to receive health care from a community provider rather than waiting for a VA appointment or traveling to a VA facility.
The VA Mission Act of 2018 is designed to greatly improve veteran access to VA healthcare. What does it mean for veterans? The VA Mission Act addresses in-network and non-VA healthcare issues, veterans’ homes, access to walk-in VA care, prescription drug procedures, and much more.  This VA reform law affects a wide range of areas and the “official” name of this law says a lot of about its focus.
