Ensure TRICARE exemption from National Health Care Bill

ROA recommends writing to your elected officials to include language during the conference to add a TRICARE and Veteran health care exemption, by protecting the health care authorities in Title 10 and Title 38.

Section 311 of the House Bill H.R.3962 says Retention of DoD and Va Authority - Nothing in this subtitle shall be construed as affecting any authority under title 38, United States Code (veterans health), or chapter 55 of title 10, United States Code (military/TRICARE health). The subtitle only refers to the exchange program (public option). While ROA has been reassured that the intent is that National Health Care Reform will have no impact on military or veterans health care, ROA leadership is not 100 percent confident without a change to language being included in the final bill.

While ROA has already written House and Senate leadership asking for a change, replacing the word “subtitle” with the word “act” to broaden the exemption; ROA members can help by contacting their elected officials and having them contact House and Senate leadership to have this language included during the conference meeting. Or call through the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (888) 762-8760 to contact leadership offices directly.

If you are a victim of medical negligence and you want to claim compensation, you should employ the services of an attorney. The attorney should be well versed and knowledgeable about claims of this nature and have a good track record. You don't pay any of the attorney's costs. He or she will take part of the settlement as payment. If the act of negligence has rendered you unable to work, you will be able to include this factor in your claim for compensation. Likewise if the doctor's negligence has resulted in you needing constant medical care for the rest of your life, this will also substantially increase the amount of your claim.

Why are politicians wasting time reading the national health care bill when they should just pass it?
We're in a crisis we don't have time to think, why are they being so negligent
