I predict Tricare prime will be a thing of the past within the next 10 years. They will tout it as patriotic and being more fair in cost savings. In the end it will just fuck over veterans and their family members which is the only thing that the government knows how to do well.
Those veterans who also get SSDI know you gotta pay three times as much money for Medicare, which gives you Tricare for Life which doesn’t even cover biannual eye exams like Tricare is supposed to.
You are punished for being injured.
