VMBA Nursing Care Qualification for a Military Injury
The VMBA gives the VA the authority to expand eligibility for nursing care to veterans with a service-related injury or disease that requires them to have nursing care for a disabling injury determined to be 70% or more. The VA may rate a disabled veteran in two ways:
- A single disabling injury rated at 70% or more
- Multiple disabling injuries rated collectively at 70% or more
Most services-related nursing care benefits for assisted living or in-home care require some degree of disability from injury suffered during a veteran's service period, a previous injury that was aggravated during their service, or a disabling injury resulting from treatment received in a VA facility or by its medical staff.
