Single Case Result!
November is the month we celebrate Veteran’s Day. During this month, we are especially proud to highlight a wonderful RESULT for one of our Veteran clients!
Benefit Results has had the privilege and honor of working with Mr. R. under our unique Benefit Coordination contract with Mercy Care/Aetna. Mr. R. was in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict and was a recipient of the National Defense Service Medal. Due to his wartime service, he was eligible for additional VA Benefits which he was not aware of. When we first spoke, he had no idea that additional funds existed for him because he was not injured in combat. With benefit coordination assistance, he was found eligible for additional funds each month through the VA. He was able to discharge from a Skilled Nursing Facility back into the community. Mr. R. was amazed when he found a retroactive amount was deposited in his bank account! Because of the coordination assistance provided, Mr. R. has been able to tap into this additional benefit toward his monthly living expenses. He received not only a lump sum of back payments but also now an ongoing monthly award. What a difference has been made for this Wartime Veteran – We are honored to be able to provide ongoing support and benefit assistance to this wonderful 87-year-old Veteran and many more.
Resident had been in assisted living since 2018 without the ability to pay her room and board due to an issue with her social security. She had no identification and needed her social security reinstated. Our facility partner called Benefit Results and explained the situation. We were able to figure out the issue, deal with Representative Payee company, secure new ID, communicate with Social Security and finally get her Social Security reinstated! This was a Revenue Recovery of over $8300 to the Assisted Living and now the resident can pay her room and board and have her personal needs allowance! Both the facility and resident were thrilled with this great RESULT!

He was able to secure retro active funds AND an additional $1830 each month that allows him to pay privately for his care!
