TRICARE Payment Changes in Effect

As of Jan. 1, 2013, TRICARE will only accept monthly premium payments using recurring automatic payments by credit /debit card or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) from a linked bank account. Those enrolled in TRICARE Reserve Select (TRS) and TRICARE Reserve Retired (TRR), who did not comply by Jan. 1, 2013 may lose coverage.

Beneficiaries can contact their regional or overseas contractor to set up automatic payments and get more information. Contact information is available online at www.TRICARE.mil/contacts.

The Defense Manpower Data Center has sent email messages to current TRR and TRS members, and new beneficiaries are informed in their welcome package information.

For more information, visit the TRICARE website .
