Topic: Enhanced health care benefits for area veterans

Guests: Jennifer Vandermolen, Director, Pittsburgh Regional Office, VA Benefits and Healthcare, and Shelley Nulph, Public and Community Relations Manager, VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System

How Topic Discussed: The PACT Act, signed into law in 2022, provides enhanced benefits and cuts red tape for soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who may have been exposed to hazardous chemicals during their service. What types of benefits are available to veterans? How can they find out if they qualify? What agencies are available to help in the application process? Where can veterans go locally to get healthcare? Why should all veterans, regardless of era served, find out if they qualify for VA healthcare?
