Veteran Skilled Nursing Facilities

If you have served in the military please check with your case manager or social worker because you may be eligible for veterans administration (VA) insurance.

If you do have VA insurance the next step is figuring out your service connection percentage. This number identifies what percentage of your medical conditions diagnosed or inflicted during your military service is covered by your VA insurance.

Regarding coverage for skilled nursing facilities (SNF), the VA contracts with certain community nursing homes and determines based on skilled need, service connected status, and income how much they will cover your SNF stay.

Currently the Rockfish tool does not listed VA skilled nursing facilities and we have not included the VA insurance yet. However this is an area that we are working on so stay tuned! For the time being if you still have questions, call toll-free, 1-877-222-VETS (8387), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (CST) or, contact your VA social worker.
