TriCare is health insurance for retired military service members and their immediate family. TriCare members have different plan choices based on where they live.
Prior to 2001, TriCare members over age 65 were not able to continue their coverage to supplement Medicare. This has changed with the addition of TriCare for Life.
Medicare beneficiaries who are eligible for TriCare can now use a prescription drug benefit to assist with medication costs and can also use it to supplement Medicare. For more information on TriCare for Life, call 888-874-9378 or visit www.tricare.osd.mil/.
