Senate Bill: TRICARE Fees, Pay Caps, and More
The Senate Armed Services Committee has voted to their version of the National Defense Authorization Act bill (S 1519), which the committee approved before Congress began its July 4 holiday break. If the Senate NDAA passes, working-age retirees will no longer be exempt from a host of higher TRICARE fees. The Senate bill also would cut combined Basic Allowance for Housing for dual service couples with children, and the military pay raise next January would be capped at 2.1 percent, as President Trump proposed, versus the House bill's support of a 2.4 percent hike to match recent private sector wage growth.
