Many Will Lose TRICARE Prime on Oct. 1, 2013

On October 1, 2013 more than 171K retirees will be pushed off TRICARE Prime – the military's managed-care option. The policy change will affect retirees, their family members and military survivors who reside more than 40 miles from a military treatment facility or from a base closure site. Affected retirees will need to shift health coverage from Prime to TRICARE Standard, the military's fee-for-service health insurance option. For beneficiaries who use more than preventive health care during the year, the shift will mean higher out-of-pocket costs. Read the Military Update to get the full story. Let your voice be heard!
