                                                              News From MOAA
TRICARE Fee Impact All About the Index
Last week’s legislative update reported the Pentagon has dropped previous proposals for large TRICARE fee hikes, proposing a much more mod-
est 13 percent increase for retired TRICARE Prime enrollees for FY2012, with no enrollment fee or deductible changes for TRICARE Standard or
TRICARE For Life. But the update item noted MOAA’s serious objection to the proposal to tie future Prime fee adjustments to a measure of
Medicare cost growth. DoD estimates this would generate annual increases of 6.2%, starting in 2013. The chart below shows the dramatic, com-
pounding impact the DoD-proposed indexing would have over longer periods of time. MOAA believes strongly that, in recognition of military
beneficiaries’ lengthy service and sacrifice, the percentage increase in any year should not exceed the retired pay COLA percentage. We strongly
oppose adjusting fees for nondisabled retirees under 65 based on health cost growth for elderly and disabled Americans.
