TRICARE Select fees for Group A retirees

As of 2/1, TRICARE Group A retirees who did not set up a payment are subject to disenrollment and have until June 30th to call us at (800) 444-5445 and be reinstated.

Do not wait, call us


To ensure accurate delivery of your call, please see the following steps:

  • Call (800) 444-5445
  • Hear the welcome to Humana Military statement
  • When asked if you are provider or beneficiary, say “Beneficiary”
  • After the privacy act statement is read, you will hear “Let’s continue, how can I help you today?”
  • Say “Enrollment”
  • You will then be transferred to our Billing and Enrollment menu

If you no longer wish to have Select Group A coverage, please call and let us know so we will no longer contact you.

Direct care only

Until you are reinstated, you will only be able to use direct care options, if space is available, at a military hospital or clinic. We expect high-call volumes, so if you experience long wait times, we encourage you to continue to try to call us back sometime before June 30.


What if I'm not eligible for allotment?

If you are unable to pay via allotment, you must set up a different automatic payment method by calling us at (800) 444-5445. Payments can be set up using your bank account or a debit/credit card.

What if I do not want to remain enrolled in TRICARE Select?

If you choose not to remain enrolled in TRICARE Select, please call us as soon as possible. We will promptly process your voluntary disenrollment and will no longer reach out to set up payment.

Additional information

As part of the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, Congress directed the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to implement enrollment fees for TRICARE Select Group A retirees, starting January 1, 2021.

Group A includes those retirees whose initial enlistment or appointment, or that of their sponsor’s, occurred before January 1, 2018.

There is no change for TRICARE Select Group B beneficiaries, as they currently pay enrollment fees.
