Thank you for your service!

You have got to love how our government shows its support for our troops. The health insurance for our soldiers and their families is called Tricare. Tricare pays on average the same amount as Medicaid, which is 60% of Medicare and comes with a lot more governmental headaches. It pays so low that our military families often have to travel out of state to find a hospital or doctor that will accept it. Tricare mandates precertified and approved appointments for all specialist care and outpatient visits. Federal Employees and Congress on the otherhand, have BCBS which pays top dollar, do not need referrals and can go wherever they want.

Welcome to the world of government dictated single payor healthcare, and the first people to get the shaft are the ones who actually are the ones fighting for out country.
