With the Jan. 1, 2018 changes to new stateside regions and contractors, you may need to update your payment option to guarantee continued payment of your TRICARE enrollment fees and monthly premiums. You will no longer be able to make payments via paper check. Acceptable methods of payment will continue to be allotment, electronic funds transfer, and debit or credit card. If you currently pay your enrollment fees or premiums by allotment through a Defense Financing and Accounting Service (DFAS) or other Uniformed Services Pay Center, you will not need to update your payment information. If you live in an area where a new regional contractor will be delivering services, you will need to update your payment information to go to your new regional contractor. For more information, visit the TRICARE Changes webpage.
