Understanding Toxic Exposure Risk Assessment (TERA) and PACT Act for Veterans


The Toxic Exposure Risk Assessment (TERA) and PACT Act are vital components of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) initiatives aimed at addressing the health concerns of veterans who were exposed to various environmental hazards during their military service. These programs are designed to ensure that veterans receive comprehensive health care and benefits for conditions that are linked to toxic exposures. The TERA process involves documenting potential exposures during military service, while the PACT Act expands on this by establishing presumptive conditions, making it easier for veterans to receive benefits without needing to prove a direct connection between their service and their health conditions.
