Approved applicants will receive a Description of Benefits (DOB) that will list approved care and the time period during which the care must be obtained. The DOB should be given to the health care provider you chose who will return it to WDVA with billing information. Payments will be sent directly from WDVA to the health care provider. If an outstanding DOB exists, binding quotes from a provider are necessary in order to have an additional DOB issued. Invoices for health care services that are received more than 30 days after the expiration of the DOB or any applicable extension will be denied.
Note: The department may not provide health care aid under this program unless the aid recipient's health care provider agrees to accept, as full payment for the health care provided, the amount of the payment, the amount of the recipient's health insurance or other third-party payments, if any, and the amount that the department determines the applicant is capable of paying.
