When responding to a state natural disaster, extended TRICARE coverage may be available to National Guard members and their families.

States, U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia activate National Guard members to respond to state natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms and wildfires.

Now, National Guard members and their families may be eligible for extended TRICARE benefits when activated to respond to a natural disaster. These extended benefits are the same as those when called or ordered to active service for more than 30 days.

During an activation, look for a letter in milConnect about a change in your TRICARE coverage. Also be on the lookout for an email or a postcard from the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC).

For more information about this change, talk to your National Guard Bureau or TRICARE regional contractor.
