    Hello just married..need tricare now

    Advertisements
    Hello ladies!!

    Me and my DH just got married, but he was deployed before i got tricare. I live in the hampton roads area, and my question is, do i need him here to be able to sign up for Tricare, and if not where do I go? I know where the Tricare office is on Oceana, but I just didnt know if he needed to present in order for me to get the insurance....

    Thanks everyone!!

    Did you go into the PSD office and get your dependent ID yet? If you did, you have the basic Tricare insurance already - your ID acts as your insurance card. If you want Tricare Prime or any of the other plans, you need to enroll at the Tricare Office earest you.

    If not, then you need to go to your nearest base and go to the PSD office there (we went to the one on the Navy side because DH is Navy, but IDK if that matters.) You should bring a photo ID, your social security card, and marriage certificate. This will enrool you into DEERS and get you and ID.

    A picture paints a thousand words, it's true.
    But it's still not enough for how I feel about you.

    You've got to get into DEERS then get your ID and go to the tricare office on base its pretty easy to do.

    These ladies are right. The day you are enrolled in DEERS (for me, I got my ID card AFTER I was enrolled. I had to have a power of attorney to get onto base since DH went back to Japan) is the day your tricare standard starts. You can opt into tricare prime by visiting your tricare office!
