Description
 
In 2012, the Dept. of Defense (DOD) spent $52 billion on health care for service members, retirees, and their families. DOD offers health care to nearly 10 million people through its TRICARE program. The following groups of people are eligible to participate in TRICARE: All members of the four military branches as well as members of the Coast Guard and the commissioned corps of the Public Health Service and of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (1.8 million members); Families of current service members (2.6 million); and Retired service members and their families (5.2 million). The cost of providing that care has increased rapidly as a share of the defense budget over the past decade, out-pacing growth in the economy, growth in per capita health care spending in the U.S., and growth in funding for DODäó»s base budget (which finances DODäó»s routine activities but has excluded funding for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan). This report discusses funding for military health care and alternatives for reducing DODäó»s health care spending. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
