§ 505. Veterans Home Admission.
(a) The Veterans Home of California shall admit all eligible applicants, provided that care for their needs can be furnished within the available resources of the Veterans Home and subject to the levels of care for which direct admission is permitted.
(b) The Veterans Home shall provide equal opportunity for admission to all eligible applicants regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, ancestry, sex, marital status, disability, religious or political affiliation, age or sexual orientation.
(c) Medical diagnosis of actual or suspected conditions, or classifications of risk potential shall not be the sole factors influencing Veterans Home admission, placement, return from provisional placement, and discharge decisions.
(d) In addition to the requirements stated in Section 1012 of the Military and Veterans Code, the ability of the Veterans Home to provide adequately and appropriately for the applicant's medical and social needs and the applicant's ability and willingness to adapt to the Veterans Home environment shall be determining factors.
(e) Before a veteran applicant may be admitted to the Home, he or she must be participating in a qualified federal, state or private health service plan, a United States Department of Veterans Affairs medical program, or have an application pending for such coverage. A non-veteran applicant must be participating in a qualified federal, state or private health service plan to be admitted to the Home. For purposes of this regulation, a qualified federal, state or private health service plan means one that provides access to preventive, acute and long-term health care services in the geographical area of the Home for which admission is sought.
