Zero-Cost TRICARE & DENTAL
8/28/23, 10:00 PM
National Guard and Reserve service members continue to face challenges in obtaining health care access to meet medical readiness requirements and ensuring continuity of care, especially when deploying overseas. Significant numbers of service members without health care directly impacts National Guard deployability, as no-notice deployments have increased to record-highs over the last several years.
The Dental Care for Our Troops Act is a bipartisan and bicameral bill that waive premiums and co-pays within TRICARE for all Reserve Component members ensuring all service members are ready to deploy and serve our nation when called upon.
An estimated 130,000 Guardsmen and Reservists don't have health insurance under the current disjointed system of third-party health contractors and Periodic Health Assessments (PHAs), which greatly impacts the Reserve Component’s medical readiness.
HNGA and @ngaus.hq supports this legislation and humbly asks for your help to write to our US congressional delegation to support this.
