Health for Veterans

Eligibility: Veterans

Important Dates: Ongoing

Description: The CARES Act includes funding for several health programs for veterans. The funding is administered through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The legislation expands coverage for veterans’ telehealth and mental health services, waives certain requirements for enrollments and renewals in health care programs, prevents certain suspensions and dis-enrollments from health care programs, eliminates certain costs and copays for COVID-19 testing, and prioritizes access to veterans in underserved and rural areas, low-income, and at increased risk of suicide and other mental health concerns.
