MHS Transformation

The Defense Department is transforming the Military Health System to improve the readiness of our forces and the health care we provide to our warfighters, retirees and their families.  Reform efforts focus on organizational, infrastructure and manpower changes.  As changes are implemented, MHS priorities are to:

  • Support the operational readiness of our Joint Force by ensuring they are medically ready to deploy
  • Increase opportunities for medical professionals to improve their readiness skills
  • Provide beneficiaries with access to high quality care
