ROA has supported extending TRICARE Reserve Select to military technicians as a recruiting tool for the services. When we worked on this change with the Senate, they decided it would only be fair to extend it to all National Guard and Reserve federal employees. Of course, the biggest hurdle is the offset of appropriations because this option has not been funded by DoD.
While ROA supports the recently passed legislation, it does not resolve the problem of having multiple types of TRICARE that change when orders are issued.
Please tell us how often your health care changed, either when you were in service or now as a participating National Guard or Reserve member.
