    Shock Tricare!

    Advertisements
    My DH is at basic and they sent me the papers to get my military ID and Tricare started! Do I need to get my military ID first and then start Tricare or does it even matter? If it happens that I need my military ID first what's the next step to starting the Tricare?

    You need to be put into DEERS before getting your ID. Once you're in DEERS, you're immediately enrolled in Tricare Standard. If you wish to be on Tricare Prime, then you need to either call them or go into the nearest Tricare office to switch. After you get put into DEERS then you'll need to get your ID card... it'll act as your insurance card.

    If you aren't near a base, you will probably need Tricare Remote and no matter what you get, you need to add dental seperately.

    I got those papers from DH last week. I took them all on base and got my ID and they told me I was enrolled already in standard and if I wanted to I could upgrade to prime. I also got a dental paper through MetLife, I filled it out and mailed it in (after asking the guy at the hospital on base).

    your DH has already enrolled you in DEERS he will have done that in BC. all you have to do now is get your ID. you should also be enrolled in TRICARE because it is automatic when enrolling in DEERS.
    you can call the tricare number and find out which tricare you have.
