    National Guard/Spouse/Health?

    Advertisements
    I'm wondering...my dude is in the Natinal Guard. How would health insurence work for us if/when we got married? Is there a portion we pay? And are we only covered when he's active, or all the time?

    Chris is national guard. We were covered through Tricare when he was in Iraq and for 6 months after he got home. Now that he's home though, we'd have to pay to have them.

    You are covered only when he is activated for more than 30 days, and no you don't have to pay anything for it. It's a PITA.
    My regular Dr. takes Tricare, so I just go with standard (we live a bit from base) and that way I can still see him. Otherwise, you have to get in to see a Primary Care Provider on base and when I inquired about that I was told 4-5 months - that is 1/3 of the deployment.

    Or they have trice prime remote if you are so many miles from a mtf. We were over 40 miles from bases so we have prime remote and any doctor that accepts Tricare, accepts the prime remote. So it was no hassle whatsoever for us. So make sure you look into that also.
