Recently, United States Senators Tammy Baldwin and Jerry Morgan introduced S. 2772. Under this bill, veterans and their families are to receive education regarding the proper use of prescribed naloxone rescue kits. In addition, the bill seeks to eliminate copayments from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for these kits.

What Are Naloxone Kits?
Naloxone kits are used for a variety of reasons. For one, many individuals and their families use these kits to save a person that has suffered an overdose. Similarly, these kits are prescribed to many veterans who live with chronic pain that has derived from their years of active duty. Many people believe that copayments for these kits should not exist since these kits can be used to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses.
How to Take Action
If you would like to be part of this movement, we encourage you to get in touch with your elected officials and urge them to support the passing of S. 2772 during the 114th Congress. We would like to thank those who participate, in advance, for displaying your advocacy and helping Disable American Veterans (DAV) in their mission to uphold the dignity and respect that our United States veterans deserve.
