"The dispute primarily revolves around the Veterans Affairs Department’s proposed rules for implementing the law. Those rules would restrict eligibility to new veterans whose disabilities are so serious that they would be hospitalized or institutionalized if a family member did not provide home care.

That restriction would make about 850 families — rather than the 3,500 envisioned by Congress — eligible for benefits that include medical training, monthly living stipends, health care benefits, counseling and respite care for primary caregivers of severely disabled veterans."
