FRA: Oppose TRICARE Fee Increases

From our good friends at the Fleet Reserve Association:

TRICARE Program Merger Just a Pretext to Riase Fees, Co-pays and Deductibles

The Administration’s FY 2015 budget request includes:
  • A complex plan to merge TRICARE Prime, Standard and Extra into one program for all retirees under age 65;
  • Raising annual fees for retirees under age 65 and a new co-pay for active duty family members;
  • Dramatically increasing pharmacy co-pays for retirees under age 65; and
  • A new means-tested annual fee for new TIRICARE-for-Life (TFL) beneficiaries.
Shipmates are urged to use the Action Center to ask their legislators to oppose these TRICARE fee increases Today!

”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Obama Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
