Health Care Surveys: Analysis and Presentation of Findings

2013-2018
Prepared For

U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Health Agency

TRICARE provides coverage to over 9 million active duty and retired service members and their dependents. Beneficiaries receive coverage under a wide array of TRICARE health plans and many beneficiaries also carry coverage from other plans such as Medicare, the Veterans Administration, and civilian health insurance. To monitor the performance of this complex health system, the Defense Health Agency (DHA) uses the Health Care Survey of Department of Defense Beneficiaries (HCSDB) and the TRICARE Standard Survey (TSS). These ongoing surveys monitor beneficiaries’ perceptions about their health status, use of health services and insurance, access to care, satisfaction with care, and attitudes toward and enrollment in TRICARE. Furthermore, family members of active duty personnel, retirees and their dependents, and inactive and retired reservists and their families increasingly rely on civilian providers for health care services. The TSS evaluates whether these beneficiaries have adequate access to civilian providers.
