Michigan Veteran Homes - Veteran Affairs Benefits

Benefits and Cost of Care

Michigan Veteran Homes is an independent, nonprofit organization, separate from the VA. So, while gaining veteran healthcare coverage from the VA is different from gaining admission to VA Homes, we can still help you make the most of your benefits.

The Cost of Care

Every year, the MVFA Board of Directors determines the cost of care. Currently, rates for November 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022 are as follows:

Veterans Fees

Nursing Care $184.63 per day

Domiciliary Care $2,710.00 per month

Non-Veterans Fees

Nursing Care $300.25 per day

Domiciliary Care $4,336.00 per month

However, the cost for each individual member is determined by a monthly assessment, which is based on a member's ability to pay.* To calculate a price as fair as possible, our team will consider a person's assets, income, marital status and dependent expenses.

VA Benefits

To help offset costs, veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces may qualify for VA benefits, including long-term care, extended care, short-term stays and rehabilitation care. See if a daily stipend is available through the Veterans Affairs’ Aid and Attendance Program.

*Residents unable to pay the maximum amounts will be assessed according to their individual circumstances. All residents with the ability to
pay the full cost of care are expected to do so. If paying the full cost for nursing care, the monthly amount due will fluctuate based upon the
number of days included within each month.
