A change of address may mean new TRICARE health options

Article

Moving may change the TRICARE health care options available to you and your family. A change of address, such as moving to a new country, city, region, or ZIP+4 code is a TRICARE Qualifying Life Event (QLE). This QLE means you have 90 days from the date of your address change to enroll in or change your TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select health plan based on your eligibility or plan availability in the new location.

Moving doesn’t change your TRICARE eligibility. But it may change the TRICARE health care options available to you and your family
