Important Note: VA Accelerates Newly Eligible Veteran Cohorts  
Under the PACT Act, all toxic exposed Veterans were supposed to become eligible for VA care – in increments – between now and 2032. ​VA eliminated the phased - in approach – meaning that three new cohorts of Veterans are now eligible to enroll in VA health care as of March 5, 2024. ​

The PACT Act changes:  

  • Expand and extend eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf War, and post-9/11 eras
  • Add 20+ more presumptive conditions for burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic exposures
  • Add more presumptive-exposure locations for Agent Orange and radiation
  • Require VA to provide a toxic exposure screening to every Veteran enrolled in VA health care
