Q&A: TRICARE For Life Expert Discusses How You Get Coverage

November 19, 2021

From the TRICARE website

Oct. 1, 2021, marked the 20th anniversary of TRICARE For Life (TFL). Congress created TFL as Medicare-wraparound coverage in 2001 in order to extend TRICARE coverage to Medicare-eligible military retirees and their family members. Prior to the establishment of TFL, military retirees and their family members lost their TRICARE coverage when they became eligible for Medicare. Today, there are about 2.1 million beneficiaries using TFL, according to the Department of Defense.
 
So, how do you qualify for TFL? We recently caught up with Anne Breslin, the TFL program manager at the Defense Health Agency, to ask about who is eligible for TFL. If you want to learn more about TFL, check out the Q&As below.
