Effective January 1, 2021, full-time NGR members, who complete orders of more than 30 continuous days in support of COVID-19 response, are entitled to TAMP, the same TRICARE medical benefits as Active Duty Family Members (ADFM).
- This policy change is only for NGR personnel who have separated from active duty in support of COVID-19 on or after January 1, 2021.
- Service eligibility must be correct in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) to ensure a smooth TRICARE enrollment process.
- Service members who appear ineligible in DEERS must contact their local unit personnel office directly to correct their eligibility.
