Starting January 1, 2021, monthly premiums for TRICARE Young Adult (TYA) will increase. TYA Select will increase by 12.7% and TYA Prime by 22%. These changes reflect the increase in TYA program costs for calendar year 2021.
TYA is a premium-based plan available for purchase by qualified dependent children under the age of 26. Young adults who are 21 (or age 23 if a fulltime student) lose regular TRICARE coverage, but may be eligible to purchase TYA coverage.
