Community Healthcare of Texas Honors Veterans with Comprehensive Resource Guide
FORT WORTH, TX, November 11, 2022 – Today, we celebrate Veterans Day, a holiday meant to honor all veterans of the uniformed services who served or currently serve in times of peace and war. These men and women earned precious benefits for their service, and many of those benefits are often underutilized or difficult to access.
Community Healthcare of Texas is proud to be a member of the National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI), which offers valuable, innovative programs to its members. In partnership with NPHI, Community Healthcare of Texas now offers a resource guide to assist staff, patients, and families in identifying, understanding, and acquiring appropriate veteran benefits through the Veterans Administration and each State’s Department of Veterans Services. The Veteran Benefits and Resources for Hospice and Palliative Care Patients Guide includes information for veterans and their families regarding military pay, retirement pay, and survivor benefits through the Defense Finance and Accounting Services.
Additionally, the guide includes comprehensive sections on care benefits, burial benefits, Arrears of Pay and Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) annuity, and filing claims. It provides information on qualifying for disability benefits, a military history checklist, and national plus local points of contact.
“We are confident this guide will be an invaluable resource to Veterans and their families across the North Central Texas region,” said Viki Jingle, Community Healthcare of Texas Chief Executive Officer. “Their distinguished service and unparalleled sacrifice of every Veteran should serve as an inspiration to us all.”
This guide was made possible by the NPHI Innovation Lab with the support of the EagleForce Warrior Foundation, Partner Plus Media, as well as numerous subject matter experts across various NPHI member programs.
