Open Season is the annual period of when Active Duty Family Members, retirees and other non-active duty beneficiaries can enroll, change or cancel their enrollment in TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select for the following calendar year.
In 2019, Open Season will happen from November 11 - December 9, 2019. A key change from 2018 to 2019 is that unless beneficiaries have a Qualifying Life Event (QLE) they can only make changes to their TRICARE plan during Open Season.
QLEs include things such as a change in military status, relocating, getting married or divorced, having or adopting a child, children becoming adults or a death of a family member. Learn more about QLE
