About this Site
Through the Health Care Survey of DoD Beneficiaries, the Department of Defense asks its beneficiaries to report on the quality of their experience with the military health system (MHS). This site presents scores calculated from responses of beneficiaries who say they get most of their care from a TRICARE health plan. Scores are presented in four categories:
- Ease of access
- Communication and customer service
- Ratings of doctors, health care and health plan
- Preventive care
The site is set up so that you can see scores for each enrollment and beneficiary group, for CONUS MHS (the MHS in the United States), for each region, and for each MTF catchment area. Scores are compared to nationally recognized standards or benchmarks. Current scores combine results for all surveys administered in 2001.
