Transitional Assistance Management Program (TAMP) benefits extended to National Guard and Reserve (NGR) members

March 25, 2021

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).

Please note:

  • 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.
