e-Payment Deadline Looms for TRICARE Reserve Select and Retired Reserve
Thursday, December 20, 2012
With the new year quickly approaching, TRICARE beneficiaries covered by TRICARE
Reserve Select or TRICARE Retired Reserve must switch to electronic premium payments
by Dec. 31, 2012. If they don’t make the change, they risk having their coverage
suspended. Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, TRICARE will only accept monthly premium payments
using recurring automatic payments by credit or debit card, or by recurring electronic
funds transfer from a linked bank account. To avoid confusion, beneficiaries should
verify that their bank sends EFT payments electronically. Beneficiaries can contact
their regional or overseas contractor to set up automatic payments and get more
information. Contact information
is available online. The Defense Manpower Data Center has sent email messages to
current TRR and TRS members, and new beneficiaries are informed in their welcome
package information. Electronic payments make it easy for members to pay their premiums
on time, ensuring continuous coverage for beneficiaries. When beneficiaries don’t
pay their premiums it results in suspension of coverage. TRS and TRR are premium-based
health plans. TRS is available for purchase by qualified members of the Selected
Reserve of the Ready Reserve and their families; and TRR can be purchased by qualified
retired Reserve members, their families and qualified survivors of deceased retired
Reserve sponsors. For more information about TRS or TRR, visit the TRICARE website.
