A PACT Act registration and community call event — during which VA healthcare professionals will be available to share information and resources with veterans — will take place March 30 and 31 at the Kauaʻi Veterans Center, 3215 Kauai Veterans Memorial Highway, in Līhuʻe.

The PACT (Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics) Act is a historic new law that will help the VA presumptively provide care and benefits to veterans suffering from more than 20 toxic exposure-related conditions, including burn bits and Agent Orange.

It also will bring generations of men and women who have served into VA healthcare, which will improve veteran health outcomes across the board.

At the event, which runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., veterans also will be able to receive vaccines and health screenings. Veterans who are already enrolled may also come for diabetic foot checks, blood pressure checks, health and benefits questions. 


If you think you might be eligible for PACT Act benefits, here’s what you need to know:

  • You can apply for PACT Act-related benefits now by filing a claim.
  • You can learn more about the PACT Act by visiting VA.gov/PACT or calling 1-800-MY-VA-411

“We are excited to offer PACT Act enrollment and health services to our Veterans,” said Dr. Adam Robinson, director of the VA Pacific Islands Health Care System. “If you aren’t sure if you are eligible for VA services, please come and see us. We’ll help you access the benefits that you have earned and deserve.”

The VA Pacific Islands Health Care System will continue to make PACT Act enrollment a priority throughout this year.
