House Subcommittee Fully Funds DoD Health Care

The House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee recently approved FY 2012 funding for Defense programs, many of which are included in the FY 2012 Defense Authorization bill (H.R. 1540) recently passed by the House (see page 8). Subcommittee members approved $132.1 billion to fund a 1.6-percent active duty/Reserve pay increase that is equal to the Employment Cost Index (ECI), $32.3 billion for Defense health programs for our troops and military families, and $2.3 billion for family support and advocacy programs.

FRA continues to fight for annual active duty pay increases that are at least equal to the ECI and adequate funding for the Military Health System (MHS) in order to meet readiness needs, fully fund TRICARE, and improve access and awareness of benefits for all beneficiaries regardless of age, status or location.
