Watch Your Inbox for Electronic Notifications 


To reduce cost and increase efficiency, the Department of Defense (DoD) is
moving away from mailing letters with update information. This means that
instead of a letter, you will get email notifications when there are important
changes to your DoD benefits, including TRICARE. The email will link you to
milConnect, a secure DoD website, where your personal information will be

The initial email you receive will give you an opportunity to "opt-out" of
receiving emails and continue receiving paper notifications. Those who have not
provided an email address or those who opt-out of receiving email notifications
will receive a postcard stating that there is a change or update to their
benefit. Even if you get a postcard you will still need to go to milConnect to
read the letter because specific plan or protected health information (PHI) will
not be printed on the postcard.

Replacing paper mail with email will mean faster notification of important
information as well as convenient access anytime, anywhere you have Internet

Go to  <http://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil/> http://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil to sign
up or update your email contact information. The milConnect website can be
accessed anytime and anywhere for the most up-to-date account and DEERS
information. Once you sign-up, you will receive up-to-date benefit information
such as, primary care manager changes, eligibility changes due to age (for
certain family members), and more.  You can click on the "MyProfile" menu item
to update your personal email preference. Please allow three days for revised
settings to take effect.
