Pagination or Media Count:
The Army Medical Action Plan AMAP was implemented in order to resolve the concerns of wounded warriors. The AMAP served as the catalyst for several directives, including the enhanced access standards. The enhanced access standards expedited wounded warriors access to healthcare appointments. The impact of the enhanced access standards on non-wounded warrior TRICARE beneficiaries is analyzed in this study by focusing on six Army installations and six provider specialty clinics. Two periods before and after the implementation of the enhanced access standards were measured utilizing a Multivariate Analysis of Variance test. The results of the statistical analysis determined that the enhanced access standards had not impacted the non-Warriors in Transition TRICARE beneficiarys ability to access healthcare.
