Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are funded through permanent appropriations, unlike other programs that require renewal (those are impacted by the current budget discussions).
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs contingency plan (the most recent was last updated in 2021), Veterans Health Administration facilities are expected to remain open and operating fully, and most employees would remain on the job thanks to advanced appropriations.
The VA has also ruled compensation and pension benefits, housing, and burial services among those that would remain available should the government shut down."
