PACT ACT Special Health Care Enrollment Period
September 27, 2023
If you meet the requirements listed here, you can receive care and enroll during a special enrollment period between October 1, 2022, and September 30, 2023.
At least one of these must be true of your active-duty service:
- You served in a theater of combat operations during a period of war after the Persian Gulf War, or
- You served in combat against a hostile force during a period of hostilities after November 11, 1998
And both of these must be true for you:
- You were discharged or released between September 11, 2001, and October 1, 2013, and
- You haven’t enrolled in VA health care before
We encourage you to apply during this 1-year period so we can provide you with any care you may need now or in the future. Enrollment is free. And your care may be free as well.
