Veterans are entitled to a lot of  federal and state benefits, but figuring out how to get and use them can be hard. A new program at Spectrum Health is helping veterans pay their hospital bills and much more with benefits that already exist.
The program started in November, but nearly six months later, many people still don’t know about it and thousands of dollars in benefits are going unclaimed.
