Senators Introduce Bill to Help Veterans Access Behavioral Health Services

Updated: Nov 7

A bipartisan group of senators recently introduced the REMOVE Copays Act, a bill designed to boost veterans' access to mental health and substance use disorder treatment. The bill aims to give back to veterans by ensuring they have access to care and helping them adjust to civilian life to improve their physical and mental wellbeing; Instead of paying out-of-pocket, veterans would be enabled to obtain copay-free mental health and SUD care through the VA and related community providers for their first three outpatient visits every year.
