TRICARE Select is a new health insurance plan that replaces TRICARE Standard & Extra.

Who is covered by the TRIcare select plan?

Everyone eligible for TRICARE with the exception of active-duty members may enroll in the TRICARE Select plan. If you were covered under the TRICARE Standard or Extra program you do not need to do anything, you were automatically switched to TRICARE Select on January 1, 2018. New members and those enrolled in TRICARE Prime must enroll in the program.

The program is available worldwide.

TRICare select basics

With TRICARE Select you can get care from any TRICARE-authorized provider, network or non-network. No referrals are required, but some care may require prior authorization.

If you see a network provider you won't have to pay anything except your copay or file any claims. If you visit a non-network provider you may have to pay the full cost and file a claim with TRICARE to be reimbursed.
