Veterans Beware!!!

I am a veteran who went to a doctors appointment only to find out that Congress who make the so called claim that "We take care of our veterans" have voted in December that veterans and their spouse have to pay for coverage to see the doctor. Tricare says we first have to pay $300 just for the application and then pay $600 for family coverage is what I am told. The promise to us was that if we vets fulfilled our obligation we would have health care for life taken care of by our government. All we want is what was promised us nothing more. I fined it ironic that Congresses health care is never in jeopardy but those who have more to lose are.

I Googled this and there no mention of a December change to Veterans Choice Act (see below). Could it be Tricare is no longer participating in the VA program?

Good luck and thanks for your service!

As of June 6, 2019, the VA offers medical care to eligible veterans at selected civilian urgent care facilities nationwide. ... This is an expansion of the VA's Mission Act, which itself was an expansion of the Veterans Choice Act.May 29, 2019
