What is necessary for a Vet to qualify for A&A while living in an Independent Living Facility?
If the doctor states that the claimant must live in a “protective environment as provided by ________________ “ and the facility letter states that they are providing this protective environment, the entire IL fee should be accepted as UME.
However, if no confirmation of “protective environment” or the facility is not providing same, the claimant may declare some facility costs as UME; e.g. medic alert system, transportation to/from doctors, twenty-four hour on-sight supervision, meal preparation, etc.
