    tricare coverage question

    Advertisements
    Good evening ladies (and gents)

    I have a question regarding tricare benefits....my dh is etsing on 6aug2012 I was wondering if there is a way to get tricare after he etses? He was given a continuing coverage sheet but it is 2400 dollars every 3 minus and that is just money we don't have....any advice would be appreciated

    Can he go into the guard or reserves? If so I believe Tricare Reserve Select is cheaper then that..

    I'm not really sure. I know he still has two years of inactive duty. I don't know if that is the same thing or not

    no IRR is not the same thing as being active reserve. with IRR he will not have to drill -
    unfortunately the only way to keep the tricare insurance is to pay for it.

    Thanks I appreciate it....I knew we would have to pay for it but 2400 every 3 month seemed like really expensive and it only lasts for 18 months.

    Yeah. That's Tricare's equivalent to COBRA. It's always pretty expensive and definitely not meant for a long term fix. I would look into private insurance or go uninsured if need be until one of you can get a job with benefits again.
