    Tricare

    Advertisements
    I'm a bit confused. DH is at Bliss right now doing in processing. He asked me how I put my name on DEERS. I informed him of how and asked why he needed to know as that process has been done for a few months now. So this is how the conversation went.

    DH: I had to enroll you in tricare down here
    Me: That's weird
    DH: It's a different tricare. If that makes sense.
    Me: Well no, not really. You'll have to explain later.

    So needless to say, I'm confused. Does tricare go by region and that's why he had to enroll me again?

    Tricare is by region. But you shouldn't have to say enroll you. Change some basic information which you can do yourself you don't need him.

    There are three regions for CONUS, and if you move from one region to the next, you end up out of the system for a bit because they actually have contracts with different insurance companies. It's something like, if you enroll April 15th or after, you wouldn't be prime until June 1st because they enroll people once a month and you missed the cut off for May (that's how they explained it to me). I don't think you're completely uninsured, I think you're covered by standard or something.

    Is your location info on your profile still the same? If you are still on the east coast and he is in TX, your region shouldn't be changing, only his should be.

    Is he changing you from Prime to Standard or vice-versa? That would sort of make sense with the 'it's a different Tricare' comment.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    Yes it goes by region so he probably changed you to Tricare South (or West depending on where in TX) since you're moving to Texas in a few days.

    Makes sense, thank you!
