Did you get married or divorced recently? If so, you have experienced a TRICARE Qualifying Life Event (QLE). These changes may trigger a change in your TRICARE eligibility and options. A QLE for one family member creates a QLE for all family members. Getting married or divorced allows you and your dependents 90 days to enroll in or change your TRICARE health plan coverage outside of the annual open season. If you get married, register your new spouse in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). You must also update DEERS if you get divorced. Learn more about QLEs on the TRICARE website.
