TRICARE FOR LIFE (TFL) POSSIBLE FEE INCREASES
The Chapter Board of Directors decided that it is time to get proactive with our Congressional members from NH to voice our concerns about the possibility of fee increases in TRICARE For Life (TFL). Board member Bill Luti, CAPT, USN (Ret.), authored a letter to our delegation outlining our position and signed by all the Officers and Board members. A copy of one of the lettes can be viewed here. In the letter, he used data from a MOAA Power Point presentation to support our contention that TFL should not be the target of fee increases. The slides can be viewed here. Chapter president Warren Coulter, CAPT, USN (Ret.) encourages everyone to review the letter and slides and use them to contact your Congressional representatives.
