Military Children Have More Healthcare Needs, But Less Access and Lower Quality, Study Finds
from Military Times
Children in military families insured by Tricare are more likely to have special healthcare needs, and more likely to have a behavioral health diagnosis compared to their civilian peers, according to a new study. And Tricare-insured families are more likely to report lower health care quality and more problems with access to healthcare for their children, compared to other families who are commercially insured, publicly insured, or uninsured, according to the study, published in the August edition of the journal Health Affairs.
