The TRICARE Prime benefit is available overseas. The TRICARE Overseas Program (TOP) Prime serves active duty service members and eligible family members stationed overseas in one of the three overseas areas: Europe, Pacific, Latin America/Canada.
Enrollment in TOP Prime for Active Duty Family Members (ADFMs) living overseas is not automatic. ADFMs must enroll in TOP Prime just as they would stateside. ADFMs who wish to enroll in TOP Prime must meet certain criteria:
A military sponsor, spouse, or other adult family member must fill out an enrollment application and submit it to the nearest TRICARE Service Center (TSC), TRICARE POC, or the TRICARE Area Office.
Moving: If you are scheduled for a permanent change of station (PCS) move, you will remain enrolled in Prime for a maximum of 60 days from the date you leave your current TRICARE region (in the U.S. Territories or overseas).
TRICARE enrollment and cliams forms can be found at: www.tricare.mil/enrollment/index.cfm.
