Sen. Ossoff Encourages Georgia Veterans to Enroll in Expanded VA Health Care Through PACT Act

Eligible veterans can enroll in VA Health Care at VA.Gov/PACT or call 1-800-MYVA411

In 2022, Sen. Ossoff championed passage of the bipartisan PACT Act     

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is encouraging Georgia veterans to access their expanded health care benefits through the bipartisan PACT Act.

This week, as a result of the bipartisan legislation championed by Sen. Ossoff, the VA announced that veterans who were exposed to toxins and other hazards while serving in the military are now eligible to enroll directly in VA health care without going through the VA benefits application process. This comes as a result of passage of the bipartisan PACT Act, cosponsored by Sen. Ossoff, which became law in 2022.

“Our bipartisan PACT Act is the most significant strengthening of VA health care in decades, and it was long overdue. This week the VA announced that veterans who were exposed to toxic chemicals can now enroll directly in VA health care,” Sen. Ossoff said. “I encourage any Georgia veteran with questions about the PACT Act or who need assistance with the VA to contact me and my office at”

To apply for care or benefits today, veterans can visit or call 1-800-MYVA411. More information on eligibility can also be found at

Sen. Ossoff continues working to improve the health of Georgia veterans.

Last month, Sens. Ossoff, Susan Collins (R-ME), and John Thune (R-SD) introduced the Rural Veterans Transportation to Care Act to help more veterans in rural areas get transportation to VA health facilities and access the health care benefits they’ve earned.

In January, thanks to Sen Ossoff’s bipartisanAccess for Veterans to Records Act becoming law, the National Archives cleared a backlog of more than 400,000 records requests, enabling Georgia veterans to more quickly access their records and claim their benefits.
