The entire bureaucracy that is TRICARE is a cesspit of waste and abuse, just like the VA.

Far better to issue something like a restricted debit card that can only be used at medical providers and then let the recipient make choices about their own care. If we are serious about covering these costs, then just cover them. >95% will make good choices. When you can prove that the <5% are not just making poor choices, but actually defrauding the government, hang a few and you'll still be better off.

Paying this huge bureaucracy to make it impossible for anyone to make a poor decision is more wasteful than the poor decisions that will be made.
