The Institute for Defense Analyses was asked to support the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission by providing analyses to assist the Commission s considerations of potential modifications to the provision of health-related services. This document presents a detailed discussion of military healthcare costs under the current system and then develops the estimated cost of providing care for a subset of the Department of Defense beneficiary population through an alternative premium-based health care model. Results indicate that movement towards the premium-based model would produce an annual budgetary cost savings in the 2 to 4 billion range with a best savings estimate of 3.2 billion.
