Military Matters: Treatment for vets in crisis

Columbia, SC (WOLO) — A bill that started in January plans to make treatment easier for veterans in crisis.

‘The Compact Act’ gives veterans at risk of suicide a chance to get no-cost emergency care at any hospital, while also covering inpatient care and outpatient care for a limited time.

Any veteran considering suicide may dial 9-8-8 for help.
