US Family Health Plan Enrollment Fees

You must pay annual enrollment fees, unless you are:

  • An active duty family member
  • A transitional survivors
  • Under age 65 and have both Medicare Part A and B

Annual Enrollment Fees

The current enrollment fees (October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015) are:

  • Single: $277.92 per year
  • Family: $555.84 per year

Paying Enrollment Fees

You can pay your fees annually, quarterly or monthly. Enrollment fees are usually non-refundable.

One exception is if you:

  • Are under age 65
  • Become eligible for Medicare
  • Decide to purchase Medicare Part B

If this is you, then you can:

  • Stay enrolled in TRICARE Prime
  • Have your enrollment fee waived
  • Get refunded for any payments you made

Consider paying monthly or quarterly to avoid overpaying.

Annual Payment

  • Single: $277.92 per year
  • Family: $555.84 per year

You‘ll pay the annual payment in one lump sum. When you send your enrollment form, your US Family Health Plan provider will prorate the fee from your enrollment date to September 30. After that, your annual payment is due on October 1 each year.

In most cases, we can’t refund enrollment fees. If you’re turning 65 and nearing eligibility for TRICARE For Life, you shouldn’t choose to pay annually.

Quarterly Payment

  • Single: $69.48
  • Family: $138.96 

Quarterly payments are equal to 1/4 of the annual amount. When you send your enrollment form, your US Family Health Plan provider will prorate the quarterly fee to cover the period until the next quarter (January 1, April 1, July 1 or October 1). After that, your quarterly payment is due at the first of each quarter.

Monthly Payment

  • Single: $23.16
  • Family: $46.32  

Monthly payments are equal to 1/12 of the annual amount.

You can pay your first monthly payment with a:

  • Personal check
  • Cashier's check
  • Traveler's check
  • Money order
  • Credit card

After that, you can pay the monthly enrollment fees with:

  • An allotment from retired pay, or
  • Through an electronic funds transfer (EFT), including a debit or credit card

If you select the monthly payment, you must pay your first quarterly payment when you send your enrollment form.  This will allow time to set up the allotment or EFT.

Annual Increases

US Family Health Plan enrollment fees may increase each on October 1.  The basis of the increase is the annual cost of living adjustment for retired military pay. You are exempt from the enrollment fee increases if you are a:

  • Surviving family member of a sponsor who died on active duty
  • Medically-retired service member or their family member

If you’re a survivor or medically-retired member, your enrollment fee will stay the same as long as you keep enrolled in the US Family Health Plan.
