  475.015.  Relationship of guardianship provisions to uniform veterans' guardianship law — powers of Veterans' Administration. — 1.  Sections 475.380 to 475.480, known as the "Uniform Veterans' Guardianship Act", do not apply to a guardianship proceeding, whether or not the ward is receiving or has received benefits from the Veterans' Administration, if the original petition for appointment of a guardian is filed after December 31, 1980.

  2.  When the Veterans' Administration is paying disability compensation, dependency and indemnity compensation, or a pension to a person, it has standing to petition for the appointment of a guardian for that person, his property, or both, and to appear as an interested person in any guardianship proceeding instituted for the person or his property by anyone.  For purposes of this subsection, none of the following are sufficient to make the Veterans' Administration an interested person in a guardianship proceeding:

  (1)  Acceptance or guarantee of payment of a mortgage;

  (2)  Payment of dividends on or proceeds of a government or national service life insurance policy;

  (3)  Provision of a flag to cover a coffin, a tombstone or burial expenses;

  (4)  Payment of tuition, cost of books and supplies, or a subsistence allowance to a person entitled to educational benefits;

  (5)  Provision of hospitalization, surgery, or medical care.
