Military Health Insurance Plan Will Remain Intact

Some current military and veterans have worried about how healthcare reform will affect them. Will they be subject to the individual mandate, in the case that their current insurance isn’t deemed sufficient?

Not to worry! Tricare and Tricare for Life (the latter for those eligible for Medicare) will remain unchanged by the law. Active duty and retired military, their families, and National Guard and reserve members will retain their health insurance plans. Shared responsibilities for co-payments or deductibles won’t increase.

Tricare benefits are managed by the Department of Defense.
