What changes to Connecticut Veteran Care will the PACT Act will bring?

The PACT Act is perhaps the largest health care and benefit expansion in VA history. The full name of the law is The Sergeant First Class (SFC) Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act.

The PACT Act:

  • Expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf War, and post-9/11 eras

  • Adds 20+ more presumptive conditions for burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic exposures

  • Adds more presumptive-exposure locations for Agent Orange and radiation

  • Requires VA to provide a toxic exposure screening to every Veteran enrolled in VA health care

  • Helps us improve research, staff education, and treatment related to toxic exposures

Connecticut Feds, join us at the Newington Veterans Affairs hospital on 3/28 to learn more.

Please RSVP by emailing leonardo.nunes@va.gov by March 20, 2023.
