    Helpful info about switching between Tricare Prime/Standard

    Advertisements
    This has come up on the Pregnancy forum a couple times, and I keep meaning to look it up but finally remembered today. I wasn't sure if ONE family member could disenroll from Tricare Prime (go on Tricare Standard) and have the remaining family members remain on Tricare Prime. In other words, can different family members be on different Tricare plans? The answer is YES!!!


    If I enroll in TRICARE Prime does that mean that my whole family has to enroll?

    Not all family members are required to enroll in TRICARE Prime. Depending on your specific situation and needs, it may be best, for example, for a spouse to be in TRICARE Prime, and a student son or daughter, to use Extra or Standard. Contact your BCAC, HBA or TRICARE Service Center for advice.

    I hope this helps someone!!

    This is me, BUT my kids are covered under their biological father, so my situation was totally different LOLOL.
