Would reconnect health care benefits with retirement benefits for National Guard and Reserve members who begin drawing reserve retired pay prior to age 60. Under current law early Reserve retirees can receive their retired pay before age 60 if they have qualifying active duty service after January 28, 2008. Unfortunately when this law was passed the ability to receive their TRICARE health coverage benefit was removed. It is inconsistent with our nation's operational reserve policy that they must wait months and sometimes years to receive their earned health care benefit. http://capwiz.com/moaa/issues/bills/
