VA Medical Centers, Health Clinics Remain Open During Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

From the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs:

During a shutdown, VA medical centers, clinics and other health services have advance appropriations for 2014 and will remain open.
 
VA has funds available to ensure claims processing and payments in the compensation, pension, education, and vocational rehabilitation programs will continue through late October. However, in the event of a prolonged shutdown, claims processing and payments in these programs will be suspended when funds are exhausted. Due to the shutdown, Veterans benefits Administration will not be able to continue overtime for claims processors.
 
Regarding the National Cemetery Administration: interments will continue, but may be on a reduced schedule.
