TRICARE Open Season is your once-a-year chance to enroll in or change your TRICARE Prime, US Family Health Plan, or TRICARE Select plan. Don’t miss the “TRICARE Open Season and Your Options
” webinar on Nov. 17 at 1 p.m. ET to learn more about this year’s open season
“With open season quickly approaching, now is the time to make sure you get the health care coverage you need,” said Zelly Zim, a program analyst with TRICARE Policy and Programs at the Defense Health Agency. “During this webinar, we’ll look at some of the key factors that could affect your choice.”
TRICARE Open Season starts Nov. 14 and it will run through Dec. 13. The enrollment changes you make will take effect on Jan. 1, 2023. If you don’t act during this time, you may have to wait a full year before you can switch your coverage again. Outside of Qualifying Life Events
, such as moving, marriage, birth, and retirement, open season is the only time you can make enrollment changes for TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Select plans, as described in the TRICARE Qualifying Life Events Fact Sheet.
Open season doesn’t apply to active duty service members. And it doesn’t apply to TRICARE Reserve Select
, TRICARE Retired Reserve
, and TRICARE Young Adult
. You can purchase these health plans at any time throughout the year. The other health plan not impacted by open season is TRICARE For Life
(TFL). Remember TFL coverage is automatic if you have Medicare Part A and Part B.
