The Military Health System MHS provides and pays for health care delivered to active- duty service members, their dependents, military retirees, and other beneficiary groups by military treatment facilities and civilian providers. The U.S. Department of Defenses DoDs TRICARE program is the health benefit that covers access to civilian providers, also referred to as the purchased care system. Because the MHS relies in part on civilian providers, policy- makers have a keen interest in how the expansion of health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act ACA will affect access to care for TRICARE beneficiaries.
