EYE EXAMS FOR ACTIVE DUTY, RETIREES & THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS
Active duty family members can get a routine eye exam every year, and retirees and their family members using TRICARE Prime can get one every two years. Children in both TRICARE Prime and Standard can receive eye and vision screenings at birth and 6 months of age, along with two eye exams between the ages of 3 and 6. Active duty servicemembers (ADSMs) enrolled in TRICARE Prime must get their eye care from military treatment facilities (MTFs) and may receive eye glasses at MTFs at no cost. Eligible retirees and their families can make an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized optometrist or ophthalmologist for an exam. TRICARE Prime beneficiaries do not need a referral unless they see a provider outside of their region's TRICARE network.

BENEFITS
VA Launches Pilot Program
The Department of Veterans Affairs and Kaiser Permanente have launched a pilot medical data exchange program in San Diego using the Nationwide Health Information Network. This pilot will enable clinicians from VA and Kaiser Permanente to obtain a more comprehensive view of a patient's health using electronic health record information, including information about health issues, medications, and allergies. VA beneficiaries and Kaiser Permanente members in the San Diego area were the first to be offered the opportunity to sign up for the pilot. Ultimately, this program is planned to be made available to all Veterans and servicemembers.

SUICIDE RATES INCREASE AMONG VETS (PLEASE PRAY FOR THESE DEAR ONES & THEIR FAMILIES & FRIENDS SUFFERING FROM PTSD)
Suicide Rates Increase Among Vets
Suicide rates for veterans not on active duty in the military have gone up significantly. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), in 2007 for every 100,000 veterans 56.77 committed suicide. That number is up from 44.99 just two years earlier. The suicide rate among 18- to 29-year-old male veterans jumped 26% from 2005 to 2007. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki noted recently that of the 30,000 suicides each year in America, about 20% are commited by veterans.

SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER (SAD)
No Need to Feel SAD
As the season changes and the days get shorter in the Winter, some people develop symptoms of depression.

The symptoms of SAD include: (1) oversleeping, (2) daytime fatigue, (3) carbohydrate craving, and (4) weight gain.
