TRICARE Tools to Help You Learn About Your Benefit
Your health care benefit gives you and your family security in knowing you can
receive health care when you need it. TRICARE provides several tools to make
sure you understand your health plan, whether you have one of the basic TRICARE
plans or transitional health care coverage.
One great option for TRICARE information is TRICARE TV videos on YouTube. These
short, monthly videos discuss a specific aspect of the TRICARE benefit. Once on
<http://www.youtube.com/TRICARE> TRICARE's YouTube page, you can access all the
videos on the playlist. You can also subscribe to receive notifications when a
new video is posted.
In addition to news articles, we have a weekly
<http://www.tricare.mil/podcasts> audio podcast that recaps the week's news and
highlights relevant military health observances.
Monthly webinars provide an opportunity for you to speak directly to TRICARE
experts. Subject matter experts present and take questions at the end of their
presentations. Webinars, like TRICARE TV episodes, typically address one aspect
of the benefit per session. You can sign up for upcoming webinars on the
<http://www.militaryonesource.mil/social/webinars> Military OneSource website
and also watch prior webinars on their
<http://www.militaryonesource.mil/social/webinar-archives> archives page.
All of these resources are on TRICARE's <http://www.tricare.mil/mediacenter>
Media Center. You can also interact and get daily news and information on
TRICARE's social media pages, <https://www.facebook.com/TRICARE> Facebook,

For more in depth information, fact sheets give highly detailed information
about specific parts of the benefit and are available for download on the
TRICARE <http://www.tricare.mil/SMART> SMART site.

care. If you're not sure where to start, you can always begin on the
