PACT ACT Screenings, Town Halls, and Symposiums

            Arkansas veterans have four federal VA events designed to connect them and their families with their  PACT ACT benefits using Veterans Administration health care and benefit experts Dec 14, 15 and 16.

The Pact ACT impacts health care and benefits for veterans.  VA healthcare and VA Benefits are managed by separate components of the Federal VA.

            These components of the VA are hosting separate events live and virtual to screen veterans and ensure veterans who are eligible for these health and benefits apply for them.

            The health side of the VA, known as the Veterans Health Administration, is hosting a virtual screening Dec. 14 at 10 a.m.

The virtual PACT Act Town Hall is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday Dec. 14 and veterans and their family members can attend by scanning the QR code on the picture with this article
