    Moving.

    Advertisements
    May be a dumb question.
    Okay I've been trying to figure this out on my own. Dh says we can, but other's say we can't. He is leaving soon for deployment and I'm moving away from our duty station to go home.

    If I do that, Can we change our tri-care to Pensacola or does it have to stay at our duty station? If we change it, does it mess with our BAH or anything?



    So confused.

    the only thing you have to change is Tricare North to Tricare South. (I think I remember VA is North.)

    And no it doesn't mess with your BAH at all.

    Yes you can change Tricare to your location and the BAH rate stays at the duty station your dh is stationed at even though he will be deployed.

    So they won't even ask questions about why we are changing it?

    when ever I change mine... from VA (north) to FL (south) I just said my husband is going on TDY... im going home to Jacksonville.. we have Tricare Prime. I had to fill out a form transfering from north to south and send it in via mail (they may have internet versions now I don't know)

    When I moved from FL to MO because it was such a short time I didn't change anything

    When I moved from FL to MS (south to south) I just said we are PCSing they changed it

    And I just changed it back in December from MS to FL and I told them DH was deploying and I was going back to Jacksonville.

    We also change MSS's coverage every summer when we have him for 8 weeks to Tricare south (MS) from Tricare North (OH).

    You can change your address but you will have to go in and "register" with base hospital if you are near one. Especially if it is a different region. I just finally did this for this base and it was same region.

    you have to change in order to get seen by anything other than acute care or the ER.

    it will not effect your BAH
