    Being Married.

    Advertisements
    Now it is getting crunch time for my wedding and I have not really been able to ask DF anything since he has been gone I had a few questions about marrying into the military. What kind of insurance will I be able to get (I mean like medical?) Is there anything else I need to know about being married in? I am sorry for all these questions but I was just wondering if you ladies could help me. Thanks bunches.
    Maggie.

    If he is AD you'll have tricare--there are a couple options--one is Tricare prime--and all care is free but MUST be done at an MTF (military treatment facility) the other main one is tricare standard -- I believe it's an 80/20 split (you pay the 20% co pays) You will be eligeable for dental although you have to pay for that--it's like $12 a month. Once you're married you need to have your info entered into DEERS, you'll need your birth certificate, Social Security card and a certified copy of your marriage license. You'll need to go to the tricare office for signing up for that and dental is online but they have the info at the tricare office. You'll need to go to finance to fill out BAH paperwork, and JAG to get POA's. You'll also need to have him update his SGLI and death benefit info.

    As far as the rest--paitence...and independence.

    Not necessarily true. We are on Prime and go to a civillian doc w/no co-pay. It depends on your distance from the nearest MTF and if they're filled to capacity.

    Actually--that's technically TPR -- Tricare Prime Remote -- only if you live a certain distance from the MTF. But yea--it's similar to prime, but covers less procedures because it's a civilian dr.

    yep, basically you get enrolled in DEERS (military copmuter system)
    you get you military dep. ID (let's you get on base)
    you get your Tricare Enrollment (they will tell you all the options in the office)
    your good to go.
    Good Luck

    Hmm. I didn't use any of that to enroll in DEERS. Maybe the marriage license, but that's it.

    For my ophthalmology care, I see a civilian practice. For my son's speech therapy, it's provided through a civilian company. You can get referrals from the MTF to see civilians.



    For dental, you'd need to sign up with UCCI after you're entered onto the Page 2 information.

    You don't need a birth certificate! I haven't seen mine in YEARS....
    Maybe some places require it, but it was never required for me at the Pearl Harbor PSD office.
