We developed this digital toolkit to help you communicate with beneficiaries about TRICARE Open Season and Federal Benefits Open Season. This comprehensive communication campaign focuses on raising awareness about the two concurrent open seasons and the options that are available to beneficiaries during this time. 


The first annual TRICARE Open Season occurred in 2018, giving beneficiaries an opportunity to enroll in or make changes to their health plans without experiencing a TRICARE Qualifying Life Event.

The same year, certain TRICARE beneficiaries gained eligibility for enrollment in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program. FEDVIP is a dental and vision benefit program for federal employees, managed by the Office of Personnel Management. Each year, eligible beneficiaries can participate in Federal Benefits Open Season.

Toolkit Resources

Please use the materials below to increase beneficiary awareness around both open seasons. Digital pieces are versatile and can be printed or be used on social media. Toolkit materials communicate the campaign goals:

  1. Encourage beneficiaries to review their current TRICARE health plan and consider their coverage options for the next year.
  2. Raise awareness among TRICARE beneficiaries about the key differences between TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Select so they can choose the best health plan to fit their needs. 
  3. Motivate beneficiaries to take action as appropriate.
  4. Empower eligible beneficiaries to learn more about their FEDVIP options and take action during this Federal Benefits Open Season.
