What type of VA Benefits is your father receiving? If he is just enrolled in VA Healthcare there would be no coverage for the assisted living facility. Should he be receiving VA compensation via either Service Connected Disability or VA Non-Service Connected Pension; I do not understand why they would not accept that as it is income paid to your father. Medicare will not pay for any long term assisted living, if she has signed over his Social Security it sounds like it could either be an arrangement with the facility itself or could be a Medicaid situation to provide for his medical care.
