Veterans Groups Warn Against Restricting TRICARE

There has been a major proposed change to retired military healthcare coverage, and Veterans groups are poised to fight back hard.


All retirees under the civilian retirement age will soon be forced off TRICARE Prime. According to the CBO, the DOD stands to save up to $90 billion by simply changing the age requirement, and since the annual DOD healthcare expenditure has risen by 130% in 10 years, many in Washington are applauding the idea.


Veterans groups like the VFW are not among them.


The VFW has formally questioned the validity and accuracy of the CBO numbers, both on the amount potentially saved and on the amount already being spent. Some are going so far as saying that this will impact enlistment and threaten the US Armed Forces’ standing as a volunteer-only force. If the amount of volunteers declines… then what’s next? A draft?


While Democrats have been pushing for DOD cuts for decades, the CBO report prompting the age restriction was commissioned by a Republican. So, this isn’t politics as usual. This is real. And sadly, there doesn’t seem to be much that we can do. It looks like a lot of people are soon going to be without a lot of extra spending money.

Luckily, the military community has a way to continue living the good life. Active duty military – ANY active duty military – have financing options available regardless of rank, pay grade, or credit history. There is no minimum credit requirement to determine eligibility, so therefore anyone is eligible.

Repayments are easy. There is no interest for the first 90 days, and the interest that applies thereafter is kept at a very low rate. And these loans are easy to do – you just fill out the online form, click the mouse, and sit back. Approval is instant – and you can borrow up to $10,000 in some cases.
