It appears that the Defense Health Agency (DHA) has declared the Demonstration was a success.
Some of you may recall the ‘secret’ survey that most of us were not allowed to participate in and where the results were declared secret, maybe due to national security issues.
As a result of this success it appears they will be extending the Demonstration for an additional three years and considering expanding to other areas and adding Pharmacy. It appears they may have discovered that all TRICARE beneficiaries do not live in the NCR, Angeles and Subic areas as they previously claimed.
We’ve asked for some feedback on what other areas are under consideration to be added and offered to provide some suggestions. Only time will tell if I get a response and if the response provides an viable information.
