The intent of the Alaska Federal Healthcare Partnership is to expand clinical and support capabilities of the Alaska Native Medical Center ANMC, Third Medical Group3MDG, Bassett Army Community Hospital BACH, 354th Medical Group 354th MDG, United States Coast Guard USCG and Veteran s Administration VA through sharing of resources. The Alaska Federal Healthcare Partnership seeks to deliver cost effective health care to Indian Health Service IHS, VA, USCG and Department of DefenseDoD beneficiaries. The Partnership has demonstrated savings of over one million dollars annually. This is a significant accomplishment when the cost of health care in Alaska routinely exceeds 200 percent of CONUS costs and very few providers accept Medicare or TRICARE. This project examines the qualitative aspects of health care delivery by the AFHCP to eligible beneficiaries within Alaska.
