Approved applicants will receive a Description of Benefits (DOB) that will list approved care and the time period during which the care must be provided. 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 provided that are received more than 60 days after the expiration of the DOB or any applicable extension will be denied.
