TRICARE for Life

October 13, 2013

TRICARE For Life (TFL) is the Medicare-wraparound coverage for TRICARE beneficiaries who have Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B, regardless of age or place of residence.

TFL provides comprehensive health care coverage. You have the freedom to seek care from any Medicare-participating or nonparticipating provider, or military treatment facility on a space-available basis. Medicare-participating providers file your claims with Medicare. After paying its portion, Medicare automatically forwards the claim to TRICARE for processing (unless you have other health insurance [OHI]). TRICARE pays after Medicare and OHI for covered health.

This handbook will help you make the most of your TFL coverage. You will find information about eligibility requirements, getting care, and claims. This handbook also provides details about your pharmacy and dental coverage options.
