Go Mobile with TRICARE

11/18/2013

The world has gone mobile, and so has TRICARE. TRICARE.mil is now mobile accessible, to make it easy for beneficiaries to connect to the health information they need on the go.

TRICARE.mil can be used on mobile devices including tablets and smartphones, and beneficiaries can go to the TRICARE homepage via the web browser and have instant access to benefit and contact information. The mobile site offers the same great tools beneficiaries use online: podcasts, TRICARE TV, access to educational materials and TRICARE news.

Beneficiaries also have access to a variety of mobile options through TRICARE’s regional contractors.

  • Health Net Federal Services, LLC, the North Region contractor, uses www.hnfs.com/go/mobile, where beneficiaries can access contact and benefit information, and locate TRICARE-authorized providers.
  • Humana Military, a division of Humana Government Business, the South Region contractor, has Humana Military Mobile, which is located at m.humana-military.com. The site provides access to beneficiary eligibility and plan information, links to a provider locator, and has a search tool for urgent care centers.
  • UnitedHealthcare Military &Veterans, the West Region contractor, operates the “OptumizeMe” app. OptumizeMe promotes healthy living and lets users challenge others to health and fitness goals on their smartphones. Users can also track their own progress and post results to Facebook. OptumizeMe is available on iTunes and the Google Play store.

Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI), the TRICARE pharmacy contractor has an enhanced “Express Scripts” mobile application available for download through the iPhone App Store, or Google Play for Android devices. With the ESI’s mobile app beneficiaries can refill, renew and track prescriptions ordered through TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery. They can also set medication reminders, locate the nearest retail pharmacy, search for drug information, transfer to Home Delivery and more. The mobile app offers the most convenient way to manage pharmacy benefits.

milConnect is the Defense Manpower Data Center’s mobile site for Android phone users available via the Google Play store. The app helps beneficiaries locate ID card-issuing facilities, find contact information for TRICARE Regional Offices, review a searchable FAQ section, and login with a Department of Defense Self-Service Logon to change their address in DEERS or change their TRICARE enrollments. 

TRICARE’s mobile options make it simpler for beneficiaries to get the information they need to manage their health care options.
