Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO evaluated the Department of Defense's (DOD) certification on expanding the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (CHAMPUS) Reform Initiative (CRI) to beneficiaries in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and portions of Louisiana and Texas.

GAO found that: (1) DOD reasonably evaluated the costs of expanding the modified CRI program to DOD region 6 for fiscal years 1995 through 1999; (2) the analyses fairly represent the likely impact of the modified CRI program on health care cost, quality, and access; (3) military health care costs under the modified CRI program will be less expensive than standard CHAMPUS program costs; and (4) beneficiaries under the modified CRI program will have better access to quality care.
