Retired Reservists are eligible for Tricare. The retiree benefits are not any different for service members that are retired. They receive their benefits at the age 60 while active duty personnel get them after 20 years and they retire.

They can choose from the options that are available to them. Tricare Prime, Standard/Extra or if on Medicare Tricare for Life as a supplemental. Tricare Prime is more like a HMO and Standard/Extra is like a PPO.

I switched over from Blue Cross Blue Shield last year and have had no problem at all with Tricare, not to counting the approx $9,000.00 a year in savings.

Tricare. mil is the site where all info is available.

Goog luck and thanks for your service.

DOD Notice via FRA

Walgreens to Leave TRICARE Pharmacy Network
Beginning January 1, 2012 Walgreens drug stores will no longer be part of the network used by the TRICARE Pharmacy plan known as Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI), which is a Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM) company that processes TRICARE pharmacy claims. TRICARE beneficiaries filling a prescription at Walgreens after December 31, 2011, will pay 100 percent of the cost up-front and than file a paper claim for non-network benefit reimbursement, that will dramatically increase out of pocket costs.
Other retail pharmacy options include CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart and Safeway stores and some smaller local pharmacies. In addition, this is a good time to consider TRICARE Home Delivery.

You can also have your meds filled free, without any co-pay, at any military pharmacy.
