No. The predictable scenario is when a Veteran is getting in home care or is in an Helped Living Facility they are typically eligible for VA Aid and Attendance Repayment but not typically eligible for Medicaid (Medicaid will now and again pay for very restricted amounts of in home care and restricted amounts in an Helped Living Facility but many Veterans will not qualify for this type of Medicaid). If the Veteran later goes to a Nursing Home he can keep his VA Aid and Attendance Repayment and will probably get the maximum benefit. But, in most cases this will not be sufficient to pay the $4500 to $6500 monthly nursing home bill, causing the Veteran to eventually spend all his savings to pay his monthly nursing home bill. Upon inflowing a Nursing Home most Veterans will point out to apply for Medicaid which will take in the entire $4500 to $6500 monthly nursing home bill. But, some time ago he qualifies for Medicaid he will lose all but $90 per month of his VA Aid and Attendance Benefit. A Veteran cannot receive in cooperation Medicaid and VA Aid and Attendance Benefit at the same time. They should point out one or the other.
