The Veterans Long-Term Care Security Act increases access to State Veterans Homes and prescription drugs through the VA system for severely disabled service-connected veterans and provides states with more flexibility to address gaps in coverage without having to construct new facilities.

With over one million veterans in the U.S. now over the age of 85, we need to ensure that we are meeting their long-term care needs. Our veterans deserve nothing short of the best available care, and we owe it to them to make certain that our State Veterans Homes remain accessible to all veterans, regardless of their level of disability or whether or not they live in a rural area.
