Abstract:

The National Defense Authorization Act NDAA for fiscal year 1999 directed the Secretary of Defense to establish a demonstration program, called the TRICARE Senior Supplement Demonstration TSSD, under which eligible beneficiaries would be permitted to enroll in the Department of Defense DOD TRICARE health insurance program as a supplement to Medicare. Congress directed the DoD to demonstrate TSSD in two geographic areas, with enrollment beginning in March 2000 and the program ending in December 2002. The DoD was required to submit a report to Congress by December 31,2002, evaluating TSSD and making recommendations about its suitability as a permanent national program. The DoD selected RAND to perform this evaluation and address the issues identified by Congress. This document represents RANDs final evaluation report to the DoD.
