Abstract : TRICARE is a new initiative created to integrate managed care concepts into the MHSS. TRICARE introduces the MHSS to managed care by establishing three different health care options. The three health care options offered under TRICARE are Prime, Extra, and Standard. The purpose of this study was to develop a linear model that predicts penetration rates of Prime enrollment for different demographic populations. The study also evaluated the effectiveness of different MTF enrollment policies.
