Eiligibility

TRICARE is a healthcare program for uniformed service members, retirees and their families around the world.

Your benefits and plan options will vary depending on whether you are a sponsor (active duty, retired or National Guard and Reserve) or a family member (spouse or child enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS)).

Keep DEERS up-to-date

The Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) is a computerized database of active duty and retired service members, their family members and others who are eligible for TRICARE. Proper and current DEERS registration is key to getting timely, effective TRICARE benefits. Keeping DEERS up-to-date will prevent problems with claims and other healthcare benefits.
