Title: Application for Extended Care Services, VA Form 10-10EC.
OMB Control Number: 2900-0629.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Abstract: VA Form 10-10EC is used to gather current income and financial information from nonservice-connected veterans and their spouse when applying for extended care services and to establish a co-payment agreement for such services. VA provides extended care to non-service connected veterans who are unable to defray the necessary expenses of care if their income is not greater than the maximum annual pension rate. VA uses the data collected to establish the veteran's eligibility for extended care services, financial liability, if any, of the veteran to pay if accepted for placement or treatment in extended care services, and to determine the appropriate co-payment.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
