In addition, the results of each of TMA s annual beneficiary health care surveys for 2003 through 2005 show that nonenrolled TRICARE beneficiaries satisfaction with access to care was similar to satisfaction reported by participants in commercial health plans. TMA and the TROs also receive anecdotal information through beneficiary feedback, and, according to these officials, complaints about access to care are infrequent. Each of the MCSCs also has its own methods of monitoring access to care, including analyzing provider and beneficiary locations as part of their responsibility for ensuring sufficient network capacity for all TRICARE beneficiaries residing in locations with civilian provider networks. While the MCSCs methods were not designed specifically to evaluate access for nonenrolled TRICARE beneficiaries, they do provide helpful information that allows the MCSCs to monitor the availability of both network and nonnetwork civilian providers for this population.
