Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 2102, Supporting Expanded Review for Veterans in Combat Environments Act of 2021   [open pdf - 161KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs on July 28, 2021. From the Document: "S. 2102 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to extend eligibility for mammographic screenings to any veteran who, after September 11, 2001, served in locations associated with exposure to toxic substances or who served in Southwest Asia during the Persian Gulf war. Under current law, the department provides mammograms to veterans who are 40 or older. The bill would expand eligibility for mammographic screening for post-9/11 veterans who are under 40 years of age. All veterans from the Persian Gulf War are now at least 48 years of age and eligible for mammograms from VA under current law."
