Abstract:

The intent of this study was to determine the proportionate number of U.S. Army retirees, retiree family members and active duty family members living within the CHAMPUS catchment area of MACH who were seeking healthcare from private sources. Although this was accomplished, practical application of the results obtained was significantly restricted by limitations in the design of the survey instruments. Demographic data obtained from the survey, however, was considered valid and allowed several useful conclusions about the study population to be drawn. In addition, an extensive analysis of the mistakes made in the survey instrument design, which in turn led to the limitations of the study results, was presented in the conclusion of the study to assist future research efforts in this area.
