§ 17.60 Extensions of community nursing home care beyond six months.
Directors of health care facilities may authorize, for any veteran whose hospitalization was not primarily for a service-connected disability, an extension of nursing care in a public or private nursing home care facility at VA expense beyond six months when the need for nursing home care continues to exist and
(a) Arrangements for payment of such care through a public assistance program (such as Medicaid) for which the veteran has applied, have been delayed due to unforeseen eligibility problems which can reasonably be expected to be resolved within the extension period, or
(b) The veteran has made specific arrangements for private payment for such care, and
(1) Such arrangements cannot be effectuated as planned because of unforseen, unavoidable difficulties, such as a temporary obstacle to liquidation of property, and
(2) Such difficulties can reasonably be expected to be resolved within the extension period; or
(c) The veteran is terminally ill and life expectancy has been medically determined to be less than six months.
(d) In no case may an extension under paragraph (a) or (b) of this section exceed 45 days.
