The Continued Health Care Benefit Program (CHCBP) is a premium-based plan that offers temporary transitional health coverage for 18 to 36 months after TRICARE eligibility ends.
CHCBP acts as a bridge between military health benefits and your new civilian health plan. It is a healthcare program intended to provide you with continuous healthcare coverage on a temporary basis following your loss of military benefits. For an overview of the program, refer to the CHCBP Brochure
You must purchase the CHCBP within 60 days of loss of TRICARE eligibility. CHCBP coverage begins on the first day after the loss of TRICARE eligibility.
Visit the TRICARE CHCBP page and complete the CHCBP Enrollment Application form (DD form 2837) to start the process.
