This analysis examines Medicaid's role in meeting the health care needs of children in military families who receive their health insurance coverage through TRICARE. TRICARE is the Department of Defense's worldwide health insurance program for active duty and retired military service members and their families. The 2000-2002 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs, as well as a series of semi-structured telephone interviews, were used to assess Medicaid's role as a supplemental insurer for military children with special health care needs (CSHCN).
