(Washington, DC) -- All veterans experiencing a suicidal crisis will soon be able to access free care.
The VA says effective Tuesday, all veterans can go to any VA or non-VA health care facility and receive treatment at no cost.
The program will include up to 30 days of inpatient or crisis residential care and up to 90 days of outpatient care. Veterans will be eligible regardless of their VA enrollment status.
The VA said preventing veteran suicide is its top clinical priority and a top priority of the Biden administration.
