New bill aims to expand mental health care for military families


Recommended Posts

A bill set to be introduced in the Senate as soon as Thursday aims to cut costs and expand mental health care access for families of active-duty service members, a senator sponsoring the legislation said.

The Military Families Mental Health Services Act would provide active-duty military family members covered by Tricare — the military’s health insurance provider — three free outpatient mental health visits per year, said Sen. Jon Ossoff, D-Ga. Ossoff was expected to announce the new bill co-sponsored by Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., on Thursday.
