CBO Report on Approaches to Reducing Federal Spending on Military Health Care
Congressional Budget Office [CBO] Link to more items from this source
Jan. 17, 2014
"Policymakers have considered various initiatives to slow federal spending for health care in general, some of which could apply to [the Department of Defense (DoD)]. CBO examined three: [1] Better management of chronic diseases; [2] More effective administration of the military health care system; and [3] Increased cost sharing for retirees who use TRICARE. In CBO's judgment, only the last of those approaches has the potential to generate significant savings for DoD. The other two could generate modest savings, but they would not address the primary drivers of health care costs for DoD."
