Caregivers Program Review Extended

National VFW - 5/18/2017

VA will continue to halt revocations from the Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers Program for an additional six weeks because of concerns regarding inconsistent applications of eligibility requirements for the program throughout its medical centers. The VFW has worked with VA since the first halt of revocations on April 17, 2017, to identify issues with the program that must be fixed before VA resumes revocations. Specifically, the VFW has asked VA to review previous revocations to make certain veterans who need assistance from a caregiver were not discharged from the program. The VFW has also urged VA to improve the clinical appeals process to ensure veterans who are denied eligibility have an opportunity to seek a second opinion. Contact the VFW at vfwac@vfw.org if you have been wrongly denied eligibility for the VA caregivers program.
