INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING APPLICATION FOR

EXTENDED CARE SERVICES (VAF 10-10EC)

STEP 1. Before You Start. . . .

What is VA Form 10-10EC used for?

To determine the estimated amount of your monthly copayment obligations for extended care services provided to you by VA, either directly by VA or paid for by VA. There is no copayment for the first 21 days of extended care services that VA provides to you in any 12 month period. You must report any changes that might affect the copayment amount to your local VA medical facility within 10 calendar days of the change.

Where can I get help filling out the form?

Contact the Social Work staff at your local VA medical facility for assistance on understanding the information and financial data needed to complete VA Form 10-10EC.

What will I need to know in order to complete the form?

Current income of both veteran and spouse (can report monthly or annual income).

Current deductible expenses (can report monthly or annual expenses). For example property taxes may be reported as an annual amount.

Value of fixed and liquid assets of both veteran and spouse. See Section IV of these instructions for further information regarding the reporting of assets.

All health insurance information covering you even if it is through your spouse (a copy of your insurance card). Medicare information (Part A & Part B) (a copy of your Medicare card).

Spousal/Dependent information (including spouse's social security number, dependents date of birth).

STEP 2. Completing the application . . . .

Section I - General Information. Include your name and full social security number.

Section II - Insurance Information. Include information for Medicare and all health insurance companies that cover you. It is important that we obtain all health insurance coverage for you (including coverage through a spouse). Please make a copy of your Medicare card and all health insurance cards and include them with this completed application.

Section III - Spouse/Dependent Information. In order to determine if a veteran must pay an extended care copayment amount, it is necessary to identify spousal and/or dependent information and whether they are residing in the community (not institutionalized). A spouse or dependent is considered institutionalized if they are residing in a nursing home or hospital setting. A dependent other than spouse would be son, daughter, stepson, or stepdaughter. Provide address and phone number of spouse or dependent if different from the veteran. Report current marital status. Do not include spousal information if you and spouse are legally separated or divorced. If you are certifying that a person is your spouse for the purpose of VA benefits, your marriage must be recognized by the place where you and/or your spouse resided at the time of marriage, or where you and/or your spouse reside when you file your claim (or at a later date when you become eligible for benefits) (38 U.S.C. 103(c)). Additional guidance on when VA recognizes marriages is available at http://www.va.gov/opa/marriage/.

Section IV - Fixed Assets. Used only in the determination of the extended care copayment amount when a veteran reaches 181 days or more of institutional (inpatient) extended care services.

Report real property minus any outstanding lien or mortgage.

Exclude burial plots, veteran's primary residence and veteran's vehicle (if the veteran is receiving institutional (inpatient) extended care services this is the primary residence and vehicle of the spouse or dependents).

Section V - Liquid Assets. Used only in the determination of the extended care copayment amount when a veteran reaches 181 days or more of institutional (inpatient) extended care services.

Report cash, stocks, dividends received from IRA, 401K's and other tax deferred annuities, bonds, mutual funds, retirements accounts (e.g. IRA, 401Ks, annuities), art, rare coins, stamp collections, and other collectibles.

Exclude household and personal items such as furniture, clothing and jewelry if the veteran has a spouse or dependents residing in the community.

If the veteran has a spouse residing in the community (not institutionalized), the spousal resource protection amount may be applied to reduce the value of liquid assets.
