Defense officials want annual enrollment fees for TRICARE Prime, the military's managed care plan, to triple by October 2008 for working-age retired officers, from $230/$460 a year (individual/family coverage) up to $750/$1500, and to double, to $450/$900, for under-65 enlisted retirees. Beyond 2008, all TRICARE fees and co-payments would be indexed to medical inflation. TRICARE retail pharmacy co-payments also would be raised, which would be the only change to impact Medicare-eligible retirees too. The goal would be to discourage purchase of maintenance medicines through the more expensive retail network, by increasing the $3 co-payment for generic drugs to $5 while offering free generic drugs by mail. The current $9 co-pay for brand drugs would jump to $15 retail and $10 by mail order. For more information, read Tom Philpott's article "Joint Chiefs to Back Higher TRICARE Fees".
