On Jan. 1, 2018, Tricare Standard will transition to Tricare Select. Under Tricare Select, beneficiaries will need to be enrolled if they wish to use the program, and disenroll if they no longer wish to use this health plan. There are three ways you can be disenrolled: (1) if you no longer wish to continue Tricare coverage; (2) if you fail to pay enrollment or premium fees; or (3) if you or your sponsor lose Tricare eligibility. During calendar year 2018 (Jan. 1-Dec. 31), you will have a full year grace period to enroll or re-enroll in Tricare Prime or Tricare Select at any time. For more information, visit the Tricare Changes webpage.
