Veterans Preventive Health Coverage Fairness Act would eliminate copays for preventive health services including contraception, immunizations, and cancer screenings
Combat Veteran and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and U.S Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) re-introduced bipartisan legislation to make healthcare more affordable for America’s Veterans. Their Veterans Preventive Health Coverage Fairness Act would stop forcing our nation’s Veterans to pay out-of-pocket costs for essential preventive health medications and prescription drugs and add preventive medications and services to the list of no-fee treatments that VA covers. Under current law, Veterans are forced to pay co-pays for preventive healthcare services that servicemembers, military retirees and civilians with private insurance plans receive for no out-of-pocket cost.
