Webinar to Discuss Using TRICARE and Other Health Insurance 


If you have any health insurance other than TRICARE, it is called "other health
insurance." TRICARE and Military OneSource are co-hosting a webinar to explain
how TRICARE works with OHI on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at noon EST. 

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited due to system
capacity. Sign up at
https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4147309845923037698. Participants must
avoid sharing personal health information when asking a question.

This webinar discusses how TRICARE works with Other Health Insurance (OHI). You
may submit your questions to Elan Green before the webinar by sending an email
to MOSWebinars@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:MOSWebinars@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
.  Archived copies of previous webinars are available at

You can get OHI through your employer or a private insurance program. By law,
TRICARE pays claims only after all other health insurance plans pay.

The featured speaker for this event is Ms. Elan Green. Ms. Green has worked for
TRICARE for nearly five years in the Medical Benefits & Reimbursement Office,
first as a health care policy analyst, and then as a health care program
specialist. Prior to TRICARE, she worked for the Government Accountability
Office, health care division. She has a master's degree in public policy from
the George Washington University.

Make the Decision to Quit Tobacco for National Kick Butts Day 


Make the commitment to quit tobacco on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 for Kick Butts
Day. Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism organized by the Campaign for
Tobacco-Free Kids. This Kick Butts Day, TRICARE beneficiaries can pledge to quit
smoking by joining others in the effort to raise awareness about the serious
effects of using tobacco.

In the United States, tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death,
disease, and disability. According to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), around 443,000 people die each year from smoking or exposure
to secondhand smoke, and another 8.6 million suffer from a serious illness
caused by smoking. In fact, two new CDC reports indicate that, despite the
dangers of tobacco use, about 46.6 million adults in the U.S. still smoke, and
88 million non-smokers are exposed to secondhand smoke.

Make the commitment to quit smoking and you can automatically lower your risk
for smoking-related diseases.  TRICARE beneficiaries have several tobacco
cessation options to help them quit tobacco for good.  Benefits are available to
all beneficiaries who are not eligible for Medicare, and a diagnosis of a
smoking-related illness is not required to use TRICARE smoking cessation
benefits. Beneficiaries who are ready to kick butts for good can visit the Quit
Tobacco website <http://www.ucanquit2.org/>  for resources and tools to help
them stay tobacco free. Visit TRICARE.mil <http://www.tricare.mil/>  for more
information on TRICARE's smoking cessation benefits.
