Default TricareSupplements

We've just retired and moved TV. I've been looking and have not been able to find anyone down here that offers that coverage. Does anyone know where it can be found and is it worth the money?

Reggie, I am not sure what your situation is but Tricare for Life is the supplemental health care coverage given by the government to retired military personnel and their spouses. Prior to being eligible for Medicare, Tricare is used by retirees as the primary payer unless they have other insurance from a second job or spouses job. Then its the secondary insurance. After you are eligible for Medicare it becomes the secondary or supplemental insurance. And as others have said on the post, it is the government's answer to the broken promise of medical care for life for retired military personnel and their spouses. For years people were promised this care if they devoted 20+ years to serving their country. Most of us would have gladly devoted those years regardless of the "promise" but it was really wrong to make that promise for so many years and then just say, "well, sorry about that". But Tricare For Life does help tremendously and I just hope and pray that the government doesn't find some reason to break that promise too.

I am with ouma. More info. I am on Tricare Prime right now and go on Tricare for Life next month. Are you or your spouse retired Military? If not, you cannot have Tricare.
