The government managed health insurance provider TRICARE later this month will offer a webinar to help retired veterans.
The webinar, “TRICARE Coverage After Retirement from Active Duty, National Guard, or Reserve,” will be from noon to 1 p.m. July 25 at www.tricare.mil. TRICARE experts will share information about health plans for military retirees.
According to Mark Ellis, a webinar presenter from the TRICARE Policy and Programs Section at the Defense Health Agency, TRICARE coverage changes for service members when they retire from active duty or retire from the National Guard or Reserve. In an effort to keep veterans abreast of coverage changes, the webinar will cover health plan eligibility, enrollment, dental, and vision plans.
“When you retire, you and your family experience a TRICARE Qualifying Life Event,” said Ellis. “If you don’t want to have a gap in your TRICARE coverage after retirement, you must enroll in a TRICARE retiree health plan.”
Following the webinar, presenters will lead a question and answer session. For more information or to register for the event, visit www.tricare.mil.
