EANGUS Legislative Alert #2015-8; 30 June 2015

Veterans’ Mental Health Care Access Act

EANGUS strongly supports the Veterans’ Mental Health Care Access Act, which would allow veterans to seek immediate mental health care at any facility eligible to receive reimbursement through the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

EANGUS is committed to improving the care of our nation’s veterans. Securing mental health services for our nation’s veterans who need immediate and confidential help is of the utmost importance if our nation is to comprehensively address the high incidences of suicide, substance abuse, and traumatic stress in this community. Veterans are not the only ones who face these challenges in our country, and they should be able to take advantage of other federal, state, local and community-based confidential care that is open to all Americans. The Veterans’ Mental Health Care Access Act offers this choice.
