At Veterans Care Coordination, helping America’s heroes stay at home in their golden years isn’t just our job; it’s a passion that comes from years of experience and a long family tradition.
Company President, Kyle Laramie is the founder of Veterans Care Coordination, a national organization that assisted thousands of veterans and spouses in obtaining the Pension with Aid and Attendance benefit. Kyle’s is one of only four Missouri Claims Agents accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs. His training in Occupational Therapy and extensive background in the care industry taught him that seniors who can stay in their homes are happier and healthier as a result. His grandfather, World War Two veteran Norbert Laramie, occupies a special place in Kyle’s heart as a true American hero. He, like so many others, missed the opportunity to qualify for this benefit because of the lack of information that was provided to his family when the need for senior care arose.
The twin passions of service to seniors and honoring veterans drive all the staff of Veterans Care Coordination. Each has a story to tell of a family member who served in the armed forces, and each has first-hand experience in what it means to care for seniors; either as a dedicated family member or in a clinical environment. These experiences are put to use every day as we strive to serve our veterans and spouses with the same honor and dignity with which they served our country.
How it works:
Veterans Care Coordination simplifies the process for families by taking them through their eight step process:
- Screen for eligibility
- Obtain original military paperwork
- Collect supporting documentation
- Review completed VA application
- Provide Care Services
- Provide updates throughout the process
- Assist with any additional VA documentation requirements until final VA approval
- Assist with monitoring medical expenses to ensure eligibility
Veterans Care Coordination is unique because of its interest free loan program which allows care to begin while waiting for benefits to be approved!
Often, people have a need for home care but cannot afford it because they don’t have the resources. They apply for the VA Pension with Aid and Attendance benefit and the benefit is immediately denied. They have the need for home care, they served our country and are limited in assets. The mistake? They didn’t start home care prior to applying for the benefit. They are caught in a “Catch 22.”
Veterans Care Coordination (VCC) will fund the cost of the care through an interest free loan. Pension with Aid and Attendance funds from the VA are retroactive from the application date. When benefits are reimbursed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, then you pay Veterans Care Coordination back for your care costs. This solves two problems – having long wait periods before starting home care and being able to afford it, prior to reimbursement. Veterans Care Coordination assists veterans and surviving spouses across the United States. “The employees of VCC strive to assist our clients with the same honor and integrity with which they served their country," Kyle Laramie, president of Veterans Care Coordination said. “And we believe deserving seniors should not fail to take advantage of the pension with aid and attendance benefit because of an inability to pay for care during the VA processing period.”
