From older stuff I read McCain is behind this push to gut Military healthcare, active duty will see a big jump in premiums, TRI Prime will see rates go up and higher co-pays, Tricare Life for those over 65, will see a third co-pay increase in 2014, with a big push to force Express Scripts for your meds. Trouble with that is it is ALL GENERIC, and from the cheapest manufacture or country they can get it from. Many drugs are flagged, even generics. UPS throws them on your porch for any one to steal.
What if you have to go to the ER in the middle of the night and they give your a RX, well ES is is not a store you can just go to and get it filled. And that is the direction we are being pushed. And woe be to drug sensitive patients, who have to have their RX from the exact same manufacturer. Or the name brand.
Eventually they will force us onto 0’care. Because neither TFL or Medicare truly meet 0’care regs.
Yup. It goes up every year. Doubling now every year. They know there is absolutely nothing we can do about it. We are old. We are used up and broken down. I FIRMLY BELIEVE IN MY HEART OF HEARTS THAT EVERY STINKING ONE OF THOSE PUKES IN CONGRESS want us to die. We die and they save their few bucks. If they simply CUT all that wasted money they ship around the world to puke nations and give to illegals and Obama’s muzzie buddies, we could balance the budget quickly. But, know. It is easier to cut a few dollars from old, dying people. And the nation is getting further and further from caring. I bump into more people now who say “well it was your choice to go into the military. You took the chance and got hurt. So sorry.” Did not use to hear that, even here in the south, but I do now. These pukes just want their free check. Too hell with those who got broken to pieces giving it to them.
I tend to think the later, to quote Sen John McCain We cannot have continued increases in costs and benefits forever because of our inability to fund our national security, This will be the man who will write the bill eliminating medical benefits for retirees, spouses and VA patients.
TRI Prime will see rates go up and higher co-pays,
Even if they double it, the price is incredibly cheap. We are so lucky to have such inexpensive insurance and would be even if doubled.
