dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines Medicare Subvention and the effects it would have on the Military Health Services System. Current Medicare Subvention legislation is identified and reviewed. The role on the Health Care Financing Administration and how it relates to Medicare and Medicare Subvention is addressed. Improving access to care for military Medicare-eligible retirees and authorizing Military Treatment Facilities to bill for the health care services provided to this group are the primary advantages that Medicare Subvention would provide. The thesis concludes that approval and implementation of Medicare Subvention would have positive effects on medical readiness, access to care for military Medicare-eligible retirees, and Medicare. Furthermore, not passing Medicare Subvention would negatively impact medical readiness and access to care for retirees age 65 and over.en_US
