The Medical Task Force will develop legislative strategies for meeting the medical and dental readiness needs of the National Guard that include but are not limited to the need for the expansion of benefits under TRICARE; the need for improvements in the delivery of pre-deployment and post-deployment care for physical and psychological conditions of our members and veterans dispersed over wide geographical areas; and research to understand the medical needs of the national Guard as an operational force.
The Task Force will provide expert input to the resolutions process; and establish priorities that will ensure readiness for both the state and federal mission. The Task Force will facilitate telephonic conferencing for its meetings at NGAUS.
