Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Veterans Affairs Act. Provides that if a veteran has applied for admission to an Illinois Veterans Home and has been found to be entitled to admission but has been placed on a waiting list to be admitted because of a lack of room at a Home, the veteran may instead be admitted to a private facility licensed under the Nursing Home Care Act. Provides that the veteran is responsible for paying for his or her care at the facility at a daily rate based on the maximum maintenance charge that the veteran would have been required to pay at an Illinois Veterans Home; if that rate is less than the facility's charge for the veteran's care as negotiated with the departments of Veterans' Affairs and Healthcare and Family Services, the Department of Veterans' Affairs shall pay the difference between those amounts to the facility. Provides that the Department of Veterans' Affairs, in cooperation with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services, shall develop a list of long-term care facilities willing to admit veterans under these provisions. Provides that a veteran admitted to a private long-term care facility under these provisions shall be transferred to an Illinois Veterans Home as soon as a bed is available for the veteran in a Home for which he or she is qualified. Effective immediately.
