Expanding Tricare? Not So Fast

I’ve heard several questions about the new national health-care overhaul and the expansion of Tricare to cover former dependents who are under 26.  A recent Washington Post article states that the way the bill was written, Tricare won’t be expanded to cover these people.  There is a movement to make changes and we’ll have to see what comes up in the future.  I’m not going to re-write everything here as the article is pretty good.

Not good news, but news.
