President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter saying, he rejected the proposal by Pentagon officials to cut-down 2.2 billion dollars from the annual Military Healthcare. He assured his support and said they would not hurt the Military professional. He wrote “A proposal by Pentagon officials to slash Military Healthcare by $2.2 billion dollars has been firmly and totally rejected by me. We will do nothing to hurt our great Military professional & heroes as long as I am your President.”

Military Healthcare Funding

The Military Health Care System offers a rich health care benefit to 9.5 million eligible beneficiaries, which includes active military members and their families, military retirees and their families, dependent survivors, and certain eligible Reserve Component members and their families. The Unified Medical Budget (UMB), which comprise the funding the personnel needed to support the MHS’ mission, consumes nearly 9% of the Department’s topline budget authority. Thus, itis a significant line item in the Department’s financial portfolio.

Congress funds the MHS through several defence appropriations accounts, including the Defence Health Program (within the Operation & Maintenance account), Military Personnel, Military Construction, Medical Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund (MERHCF), and Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO). The Fiscal year 2020 request for the United Medical Budget (UMB) is 49.5 billion. The request includes 33.3 billion dollars for the Defence Health Program, of which 9.6 billion would be for “In-House Care” and 15.3 billion would be for “Private Sector Care”. A decrease of 2 billion dollars proposed by Pentagon officials might affect all the above sectors.

American left-wing political blog Palmer Report retweeted Trump’s tweet accusing of Trump’s inefficiency “while Russia put bounties in the heads of US soldiers and got them killed”.
