While some treatment care is provided to members, many times this expedient care is what is most cost effective for constrained government budgets. In the case of dental care, this may involve complete tooth extraction rather than true restorative care. The Foundation can provide vouchers to service members for restorative dental care. The Foundation is also committed to providing some education on dental hygiene practices that will contribute to dental readiness.
Healthcare assistance is a further benefit to the State of Arkansas. Prospective employees who already posses medical coverage are attractive to Arkansas employers. The Foundation’s farthest reaching goal is to share the cost of Tricare Reserve Select for Guard members and their families. This will ensure that members have access to quality healthcare on a year-round basis while providing Arkansas employers with fully insured employees.
