What does the PACT Act mean for you?

Episode Summary

On Tuesday, August 2nd, the Senate voted 86-11 to pass the Honoring our PACT Act, expanding health care benefits for 3.5 million veterans who were exposed to toxic burn pits during their time in the service. With roughly 70% of disability claims related to toxic exposures being denied by the VA previously, this win for the veteran community will not only finally provide them with the care they need, but also allow for them to obtain disability payments to compensate for the various respiratory illnesses and cancers that before weren’t being granted.
