    Tricare Help!

    Advertisements
    So, when DH leaves I'm moving back up to IL. (From TX.)

    I was told that once I get my new address I can check to find out if my new area is a "Prime" area, and if so switch PCMs online or on the phone. Is that correct? And also, if it's NOT a prime area, can I switch to Standard via phone or internet?

    I'm always scared because I have a record for being given wrong info by the pros. LOL!

    This should answer your questions. (Moving and PCS)

    As far as I know, it's as simple process. I'll find out in about a month.
    if i never see you again i will always carry you

    on my fingertips and at brain edges

    and in centers
    centers of what i am of what remains

    Yeah go to the TRICARE Beneficiary Web Enrollment website and you can change your pcm or disenroll from prime. The easiest way to login is to use his MyPay login information. If you have to disenroll they can lock you out of prime for a year, if your husband is an E-5 or higher. But that may not apply in your case if prime isn't available.

    You do have to switch before the 20th of every month for it to be ineffect the next month. So for you to get standard by Oct. 1st you have to switch by sept. 20th, make sense?
