We have seen our co-pays for Tricare Life go up this year. And between Medicare and TFL we are now being turned away by doctors as new patients 0’care in action.

They pay the provider peanuts. Hubby’s 2 day stay in the ER for a BP SPIKE, because there was no room available at the small hospital was $25,000+, between Medicare and TFL they paid a little over $2,500, and we had a medicine co-pay on top of that.

Hospital had to eat the rest. Don’t get me wrong he had great care, but the fact they are paying the providers so little it is making it rough to find providers. Something is wrong with this picture.

My father was career Navy and I have heard a few stories about his care!

Not all bad.

My mother still thinks the Navy hospitals were FAR better.
