When applying for Medicaid, it is usually required that the applicant applies for all other government benefits they are entitled to receive. VA Aid and Attendance is an example of such benefit.
The Veterans Administration offers Aid and Attendance as part of an “Improved Pension” benefit. This Improved Pension allows veterans and spouses of veterans who require the regular attendance of another person with activities of daily living, such as assisting with bathing, eating, dressing, undressing, taking medication, transferring, toileting or memory care related issues to receive monetary benefits.
