    Tricare

    Advertisements
    Ok my husband said that i would be on Tricare by Feb. 1st. Well last week we got some paperwork in the mail telling us to fill it out and send it back within 15 days or we would not be on Tricare.. they would just throw our paperwork out. Well i did.. but i really need to go to the doc. and we dont have enough money to spend on a doc. visit. So how do we find out if im on tricare or not? I asked my husband but he dosent know who to talk to. So if i call the local AF base who would i talk to or is there a website that i can go to to find out if im on tricare yet or when i will be?

    Thanks girls

    You are Tricare standard as soon as you are in DEERS. With Tricare standard you have to pay a 20% copay for it. Tricare Prime has a different start date. You should just be able to call your closest tricare center. Where are you located?

    ETA: You can call the closest base Tricare office to ask questions. Just google the base and find the tricare number.

    Call tricare. They should be able to tell you. Here are the phone numbers by region: http://www.tricare.mil/contactus/

    If you're not sure what region you are, let me know and I can help you look it up.
