Continued Health Care Benefit Program (CHCBP)

CHCBP is a premium-based plan that offers temporary transitional health coverage after TRICARE eligibility ends. It acts as a bridge between military health benefits and your new civilian health plan. CHCBP provides continuous healthcare coverage on a temporary basis following the loss of your military benefits.

CHCBP is administered by Humana Military, providing qualified beneficiaries with optional healthcare for 18–36 months after military care benefits end. It is available to former qualified uniformed service members, their family members, former spouses who have not remarried, adult children and unmarried children by adoption or legal custody.

CHCBP is not a TRICARE program, but it offers coverage comparable to TRICARE Select group-B with similar benefits, providers and program rules. CHCBP is considered minimum essential coverage, meeting the healthcare reform law required through the Affordable Care Act. Other healthcare coverage options are available at
