Do I use Nursing home status statement form OR VA 21-00779 form?

Discussion in 'Veteran Application' started by Caregiversunite, Feb 24, 2016.

  1. Hi! I am filing for A&A for a veteran in a nursing home with dementia. Do I need to submit the Nursing Home Status Statement, or the VA form 21-0779-"request for nursing home information in connection with claim for aid and attendance". ? Does submitting these forms negate the need to submit the physicians statement or form 21-2680? Thank you so much for helping us!

    Caregiversunite,

    You still need to submit the Physician Evaluation Statement form 21-2680 for the veteran. You can use form 21-0779 for the nursing home. Make sure you also have a statement of occupancy from the nursing home as well.
     
  3. Thank you! Is the "statement of occupancy" the "nursing home status" form?

    Caregiversunite,

    No, the statement of occupancy is a separate form from the facility itself. If you ask the workers at the facility, they should know what it is. You're welcome!
