US Army careers website, Army.net has announced the release of a new report titled “Considering the Army? A Guide To The Unmatched Military Medical Benefits”
The report, titled 'Considering the Army? A Guide To The Unmatched Military Medical Benefits' is a comprehensive guide to the various medical benefits enjoyed by members of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Medical benefits for the US Military are provided through the TRICARE program.
The report is available at:
These benefits are provided through the Veterans Health Administration, a division of the United State Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA Medical Benefits Package is available to all enrolled veterans and their dependents. This medical benefits package includes both inpatient and out patient medical care, dental care, and optical care. Services can be acquired at any VA facility in the United States and around the world.
"The current national debate surrounding healthcare and its importance has made us realize just how fortunate members of the US military and their dependents are. The US Military easily enjoys some of the best medical benefits available in the world. For those considering a career in the military, they should realize that medical benefits similar to the army or navy are unlikely to be available with any other career option," says Larry Fowler of Army.net (http://www.army.net).
Army.net is a leading source of career information and recruitment services for the US Army. The popular website provides detailed information about military career opportunities and options and gives army career hopefuls access to a military job board as well. While the site provides extensive army enlistment information for those interested, it is not limited to combat enlistment alone and features an entire array of military jobs in fields as varied as arts and media, IT, combat, law and legal enforcement, intelligence and support for administration and combat.
The Army.net report takes a detailed look at the health benefits available to the US military discussing not only eligibility and enrolment procedures for TRICARE programs but also providing extensive information on Priority Groups and the level of services available through the program. Unlike most private health insurers, active duty Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps personnel also receive full dental coverage from military dental treatment facilities and require no further coverage.
TRICARE also facilitates the coordination of benefits with other health insurance sources and providers. Active duty Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps personnel, National Guard and Reserve members, veterans, and their immediate family members are eligible for TRICARE medical benefits, as are Medal of Honor recipients.
"No other employer can boast of medical benefits similar to what the military can provide, not only nationally but internationally as well, and it’s not surprising that this is a major factor for several individuals taking up a career in the military and rejecting other civilian opportunities," concludes Fowler.
Army.net is a recruitment and careers website for the US Army. The US Army is the largest branch of the military in the United States. The site provides information about career opportunities in the army and features job openings in a variety of fields within the military. Information about military enlistment is also available.
