JULY 20, 2012 — President Obama has proposed additional fees and cost sharing increases, a new annual enrollment fee for TRICARE for Life, aggressive increases in pharmacy copayments, and a catastrophic cap of 00 per family. This is on top of the first increase in enrollment fees advocated by the Obama Administration last year, the first increase since 1995. The House adopted an amendment by Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) to ensure the Administration does not implement a first-time-ever enrollment fee for TRICARE for Life Beneficiaries. Said Stearns, “It is unconscionable that this Administration seeks to raise health care costs on more than 9.3 million veterans and their families that are currently eligible for TRICARE when there are other excesses that can be cut. For example, we should limit funds to Pakistan before giving the Department of Defense (DOD) the option to raise costs on our veterans.” The amendment was adopted during consideration of HR 5856, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, which was also approved. The Amendment Endorsed by: American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Military Officers Association of America.

Democratic Senators joined seniors’ advocates today to discuss Senator Michael Bennet’s amendment to protect and improve guaranteed Medicare benefits. The Senate health care bill will strengthen Medicare for the future and protect seniors’ benefits by making prescription drugs more affordable and ensuring Medicare funds go to improving seniors’ care — not to insurance companies. “[This amendment] honors our commitment that we have made to our seniors,” said Bennet. Highlighting recent Republican Senators’ scare tactics aimed at seniors, Senator Tom Harkin said, “I’m saddened that some of my colleagues from the Republican side have resorted to the politics of fear in their attempt to preserve a broken health care system that favors the health insurance industry and drug companies at the expense of our elderly and working families.”
