TYA fee increase

November 6, 2020

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.

If you’re a sponsor or TYA enrollee, here’s what you need to know for January 1, 2021:

  • TYA Select premiums increased from $228 to $257 per month.
  • TYA Prime premiums increased from $376 to $459 per month.

If you want to switch between TYA Prime and TYA Select, you can do so at any time. Your sponsor’s status and your geographic location determine whether you can purchase either TYA Prime or TYA Select. Please contact us if you have any questions.
