Like any new year, there are a lot of changes coming for us all. While I know we could have a great deal of fun identifying them all, I’ll keep the list short and only talk about one thing: Tricare.
Right away we know this can get complicated and there will be a lot of terms which sound alike Brace yourselves. I’ll do my best to make this easy. If you would like to double check what I’m about to describe or just want more information, I’m going to include a LOT of references from the Tricare website. Don’t be overwhelmed by the number of them. Like anything, take them one bite at a time and they will be understandable. Hopefully, my summary of these topics will help, as well.
For anyone who may not know, Tricare is the health care program for military members and their families. There is a separate purchase option for dental coverage called Tricare Dental (there is also a retiree version called the Tricare Retiree Dental Program). There are several different versions of Tricare available to service members. Which type is used is often based on the member’s duty status and personal choice.
