LVMAC Tidbit: VA Community Town Hall Comes to the Lehigh Valley

VA Healthcare Changes May Make It Worth Your While

The event, scheduled for 5 p.m. on 22 May 2024 at the Allentown VA Clinic, will provide military veterans, family members and the public, feedback on VA operations and give them a chance to ask questions about recent expanded benefits through the PACT Act. Staff will also be on hand throughout the Community Town Hall to assist with VA healthcare enrollment.

The meetings are intended to provide local Veterans an open forum and for VA officials to hear directly from beneficiaries as a step toward improvement and to rebuild trust among Veterans.

Healthcare eligibility has expanded recently as a result of changes to the PACT Act.  For example, the VA is making all veterans exposed to toxins or other hazards while serving eligible to enroll directly in VA health care without first applying for VA benefits.

If you have never applied for VA health care or were previously deemed ineligible, this is a great opportunity to double-check your current eligibility.
