US Department of Veterans Affairs State Home Per Diem Benefit
As a benefit of residing in a certified State Veterans Home, veterans who need nursing home or assisted living care are entitled to receive a per diem grant from the US Department of Veterans Affairs towards their cost of care.  This benefit is used to lower the veteran's out-of-pocket expenses. This enables veterans and their families to save significantly.

The current US Department of Veterans Affairs per diem rates as of October 1, 2023, are:

  • $138.29 per day for Nursing Home Care = $4,217.85 per month savings
  • $59.69 per day for Assisted Living Care = $1,820.45 per month savings

Cost of Care - Assisted Living
The cost to a veteran requiring Assisted Living Care is calculated at 90% of the veteran’s monthly net income but not more than the full monthly cost.  Sources of income include Social Security, Pension, Annuity, Retirement Income, etc.  In most cases, veterans are permitted to keep 10% of their net monthly income as a spending allowance and pay a monthly cost of 90% of their net income.  The US Department of Veterans Affairs Per Diem is calculated as a credit to the monthly statement.  The balance between the per diem credit and the veteran’s monthly income is subsidized by the State of Maryland.

A non-veteran spouse wishing to reside in assisted living must pay the full cost of their care, prescriptions, and ancillary services. 

Cost of Care - Nursing Home  
The cost to a veteran requiring Nursing Home Care is based on the veteran’s personal resources, long-term care insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid (if you meet eligibility requirements). 

Highly trained staff is available to assist you in understanding your individual circumstances in relation to a payment for skilled and long-term care services rendered by Charlotte Hall Veterans Home.

VP1 - 70% Service-Connected Disability
A veteran rated 70% or greater with a service-connected disability may be entitled to the full cost of nursing home care.  Our on-site Veterans Service Officer, Nicole Watson, can assist you with benefit questions at or 301-884-8171, Ext. 5112.
