Statement by Defense Secretary Gates on Impact of Health Care Legislation on TRICARE

Washington, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—March 22, 2010.

As Secretary of Defense, the health and well-being of America’s men and women in uniform is my highest priority.

Our troops and their families can be re-assured that the health care reform legislation being passed by the Congress will not negatively impact the TRICARE medical insurance program, as it already meets the bill’s quality and minimum benefit standards. This was clarified by a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday and is expected to be re-affirmed by the Senate.

The President and I are committed to seeing that our troops, retirees and their families will continue to receive the best quality health care.
