TRICARE Tools: Worldwide Online Access to Worldwide Coverage 


TRICARE is the worldwide health care program serving active duty service
members, Guard and Reserve members, retirees, family members, survivors, certain
former spouses and others entitled to TRICARE benefits. However, whether a
beneficiary is active duty or retired, TRICARE has the tools they need to find
and compare a plan that's best for them and their families.

To use the plan finder, go to www.tricare.mil <http://www.tricare.mil/>  and
click on the "Find a TRICARE Plan" link. After answering a few questions,
beneficiaries can see which plan or plans they qualify to use, based on their
responses. The TRICARE Plan finder does not determine beneficiary eligibility
for TRICARE. Eligibility is determined by the uniformed services and reported to
the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS).

If beneficiaries qualify for more than one plan, they can use the "Compare
Plans" feature also located on the TRICARE homepage. At the center of the page
is the "I want to" section featuring multiple choices for beneficiaries.
Choosing the "Compare Plans" link from the homepage leads beneficiaries to a
list of all the TRICARE plans where they can select plans and compare the
features side-by-side.

For more information about all of TRICARE's online tools, visit www.tricare.mil
and take advantage of all the convenient services.
