The guest speaker at our local MOAA chapter meeting was a HQ MOAA staffer, he talked about this a bit and said that MOAA and the other Military Coalition members were pushing against TRICARE increases greater than COLA increases...Also discussed the fight against cutting payments to TRICARE providers. In some parts of the US trying to find a TRICARE provider is difficult, cutting payment for services will make it even more so.
As discussed in another thread, I think increases are inevitable. Just do it fairly for all.
