Preview 2023 TRICARE Health Plan Costs

By TRICARE Communications

Every year, TRICARE costs may change based on the law, the federal cost of living adjustment, changes in the cost of health care services and prescription drugs, and other factors. Depending on your TRICARE plan, you may see changes to your costs, including enrollment fees, premiums, cost-shares, and copayments next year.
 
“The Defense Health Agency is committed to providing quality health care to beneficiaries across the Military Health System,” said Dr. Danita Hunter, chief of TRICARE Policy and Programs. “The DHA is also committed to helping you make the right health decisions for you and your family. A big part of this is making sure you’re aware of and understand your health care costs with TRICARE.”  
 
Below is a list of the 2023 costs for TRICARE health plans. Changes from 2022 costs are in bold.
 
TRICARE beneficiaries fall into one of two groups: Group A or Group B. What group you’re in determines your enrollment fees or premiums and any other per service out-of-pocket costs that you may have with your TRICARE plan. Premium-based health plans (TRICARE Reserve Select, TRICARE Retired Reserve, TRICARE Young Adult, and Continued Health Care Benefit Program) follow TRICARE Select Group B deductibles and applicable copayments or cost-shares.
 
Annual Enrollment Fees and Annual Deductibles
Active duty service members (ADSMs) and active duty family members (ADFMs) have no enrollment fees. Retirees, their family members, and most others must pay an annual enrollment fee for TRICARE coverage. If you have TRICARE Prime, there’s no annual deductible. If you have TRICARE Select, you must spend your deductible before TRICARE cost-sharing begins.
 
Table 1 shows the annual enrollment fee and annual deductible for ADFMs enrolled in TRICARE Select or TRICARE Prime. TRICARE Prime includes TRICARE Prime Remote, the US Family Health Plan, and TRICARE Young Adult Prime. Changes from 2022 costs are in bold.

Out-of-pocket Costs (Copayments and Cost-shares)
ADSMs don’t have any out-of-pocket costs. If you’re an ADFM enrolled in a TRICARE Prime plan, you won’t have copayments unless you’re using the point-of-service option or filling a prescription outside of a military pharmacy.
