How (DHHS) Discriminate Against Veterans

DHHS has a legislatively approved budget of over $7.4 billion in fiscal year 2014 and 2015; split 60%/30% between federal and state funding. The total DHHS budget represents nearly one third of the entire state budget. The largest expense incurred by the Department is the payment to Medicaid providers for submitted claims.

The Who


According to their website The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is considered to be an office of the Executive Branch of State Government. The Director is usually appointed by the Governor and serves as an advisory to member of the Governor’s Cabinet. DHHS is considered to be one of the largest departments in state government and comprises of five Divisions, which include Aging and Disability Services, Child and Family Services, Health Care Financing and Policy (Medicaid), Public and Behavioral Health, and last but not least, welfare and supportive Services. There are over 5,200 employees who work in the department statewide, which serves as the state’s social safety net. According to their website The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)  main goal is to promotes the health and well-being of Nevadans, through the delivery or facilitation of essential services to ensure families are strengthened, public health is protected, and individuals achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency.

The Director is usually appointed by the Governor and serves as an advisory to member of the Governor’s Cabinet.

According to (DHHS) a family of four is now a family of three

An honorably discharged Veteran, who currently lives in the state of Nevada for over seven years now, received an unexpected notice followed up by a telephone call, requesting snap benefits recertification. So just like the rest of the seventy percent of American currently receiving this benefit during a pandemic, the Veteran fill out the forms as requested, back in April of twenty one.  A few weeks later the Veteran received a notice in the mail stating that there were no eligible children, after receiving a thirty percent reduction cut in food stamp benefits. The Veteran family of four has a minor child.  According to (DHHS) their claiming that based on their record, a family of four is now a family of three and since there is no eligible children in the home, they do not qualify for the snap cash benefits program. Which spells out one thing? Discrimination against an entire Veteran family based on familial status. In a nutshell, the three basic factors DHSS Nevada took into consideration in not only denying but discontinuing federal benefits

  1. The Veteran family are not considered to be residents of Nevada after seven years
  2. Refusal to acknowlegde a minor as a member of the household
  3. Falsifying  a Veteran's earnings in a further attempt to deny them federal benefits they are entitled to, during a pandemic

Reasoning behind benefits denial

Three recertification's within a six month time frame

A few months later, the Veteran receives another notice in the mail informing them that their benefits will cease on September 30, 2021 and to keep receiving benefits without interruption, they must reapply with following information.


1.    Proof of income - 30 day current and consecutive pay stubs not more than forty five days old from the date on the form

2.    Provide a current copy of bank statements from all accounts listed on the forms

3.    Self Employment - A complete copy of most recent tax returns urging the Veteran to request a self employment worksheet

The minimum requirement for the application process would be a name, address, signature and must all be received by September 14th 2021. The Veteran was also informed that an appointment may be scheduled upon receipt of the application form. At this time no appointment was scheduled by phone or zoom call.

Veteran receive correspondence in the mail informing them they are no longer Nevada residents. Disqualifying them from all federal benefits

Veteran received final notice of benefits determination

After months of countless reapplications, resubmissions and recertifications, the Veteran receive a notice in the mail at their home and mailing address a few week after the termination of all federal benefits, informing them that they are not, never were, or are no longer Nevada residents.  with an URGENT: Welfare Interview Scheduled from: Ambra Gurule <[email protected]> sent Tue, Oct 12, 2021 at 12:23 pm. INTERVIEW NOTICE We have received your application for assistance.
