Free Market Solutions for The DOD

Fire of Liberty

Eli Lehrer of the Competitive Enterprise Institute has a good piece over at National Review Online on how the DOD can deliver better service to our members of the military by applying various aspects of the free market into their health care/insurance policies. Lehrer notes that the Pentagon will be better off if they introduce various aspects of to the current policies by copying the VA's policy of portable electronic records to their system while introducing slight modifications of the DOD's TriCare(more or less a private insurance policy) which include the introduction of stricter eligibility requirements and the introductions of health savings accounts. Now I know that folks in Congress might balk at such changes but at least Eli Lehrer is bringing some innovative thinking to the table.
