“The TRICARE program provides health care for the militarys uniformed personnel and retirees, and for their dependents and survivorsthe more than 9 million people eligible to use its integrated system of military health care facilities and providers and regional networks of contracted civilian providers. In 2008, the Department of Defenses (DoDs) costs for that medical care were $42 billion, or about 6 percent of DoDs total funding for that year. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has projected DoDs future spending on the basis of the information in the most recent Future Years Defense Program (FYDP). Those projections indicate that costs for medical care will rise more rapidly than overall resources for defense and require an estimated 13 percent of total defense funding by 2026.”
