Defense Health Board Seeks Comments on Pediatric Care
Have you faced problems getting your child an appointment at your military clinic? Had TRICARE deny a claim for services your child’s doctor ordered? Faced obstacles in finding pediatric specialty care providers who take TRICARE patients? Now is your chance to provide feedback to the Defense Health Board!
The Defense Health Board (DHB) is a Federal Advisory Committee charged with providing independent advice to the Military Health System. The DHB just announced a December 14 meeting where they will collect public comments regarding pediatric care.
We encourage you to share your stories so the DHB can understand the challenges families face with getting appropriate, timely health care for military kids.
Share your detailed story or experience with pediatric care in the comments section below and NMFA will incorporate it into our written statement, which will be shared directly with the DHB.
The DHB looks at the entire Military Health System and want to hear your experiences at military clinics and hospitals, and your experiences in getting care with civilian providers in the TRICARE network.
NMFA is aware of numerous challenges military families face in getting the best health care for military kids. For the past several years, our Association has been part of the TRICARE for Kids Coalition fighting for improvements to pediatric care within the military health system. We know that personal stories have a huge impact and thank you in advance for taking the time to share yours!
