Amends the Federal Tort Claims Act to allow claims to be brought for damages against the United States for personal injury or death of a member of the armed forces serving on active duty or on full-time National Guard duty, arising out of medical or dental care furnished to such member in a fixed medical treatment facility operated by the Secretary of a military department or any other fixed medical facility operated by the United States.

Provides for a reduction of claims under this Act by the present value of other benefits attributable to such death or injury that are received by the member and by that member's estate, survivors, and beneficiaries pursuant to other Federal provisions.
