House military personnel subcommittee asserts retirees have already paid for their health care via their military service, omits DoD proposal to hike TRICARE fees.
Members of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel are studying the Defense Department's proposal to increase fees for working-age retirees who use the military's TRICARE health insurance benefit. The panel heard, in separate hearings, from DoD officials defending the increase, and retiree groups who fear it is a "camel's nose under the tent."
Defense Secretary Robert Gates said last week that he wants to increase health insurance premiums for working-age military retirees by a "modest" amount to take pressure off of DoD's ballooning health care budget. Groups that represent retirees say Gates' past proposals for TRICARE hikes have been anything but modest.
