Taking TRICARE to TASK: Making Progress

IMG_2926_0 (1)

That’s our report!

Earlier this week, Jeremy Hilton and Susan Reynolds, advocates and members of the TRICARE for Kids working group, attended the Joining Forces Veterans and Military Family Summit at the White House, where they distributed copies of our comprehensive report, which includes over 900 signatures of military families, to members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees, professional staff, and congressional delegations.  Pictured is Jeremy Hilton delivering a copy of the report to a very impressed Representative Steve Stivers (R, OH-15), the original sponsor of TRICARE for Kids.

TRICARE for Kids is supported by extraordinary organizations, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, Autism Speaks, National Children’s Hospital Association, Easter Seals, Maryland Coalition of Families for Children’s Mental Health, Military Officer Association of America (MOAA), Military Special Needs Network, and National Military Family Association (NMFA).  We are thrilled to share with you their letters of recommendations below.

Military families are hopeful and excited that TRICARE will consider these recommendations.  We are so thankful for each one of your signatures, your stories, and your endless support as we continue to advocate and hold TRICARE accountable for better pediatric healthcare standards for our military children.
