Tricare fee increase hits a roadblock

Rein

Our colleague Walter Pincus reports in Checkpoint Washington that the debate over raising fees for Tricare, the health-insurance plan for active and retired servicemembers, continues as legislation moves through Congress.

The Pentagon has tried to raise fees for working-age military retirees for several years, but Congress has balked. Now the Obama administration is proposing a small hike starting this fall, but that too has drawn opposition.

See Walter’s story.
