Some veterans may qualify for the PACT Act, which allows them to enroll in VA healthcare without first applying for VA benefits.  

The PACT Act, the largest expansion of VA health care and benefits, is for veterans who were exposed to burns pits, Agent Orange and other toxic chemicals while in the military. 

To apply, veterans must meet the following qualifications: 

  • Served in Iraq, Afghanistan or other combat zones
  • Never enrolled in VA healthcare
  • Left active duty between September 11, 2001 and October 1, 2013

If you meet the qualifications, apply by Saturday, September 30, 11:59 p.m. on the VA’s website.
