Dependent Parents and Parents-in-Law
Dependent parents and parents-in-law may receive care in a military hospitals and clinics and may enroll in TRICARE Plus. Sponsors must be on active duty for more than 30 days for a dependent parent to be eligible for direct care.
Minimum Essential Coverage
Care in military hospitals and clinics and TRICARE Plus enrollment alone don't meet the requirements for minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
Dependent parents and parents-in-laws who don't have other coverage (i.e. employer-sponsored health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) may want to visit the Health Insurance Marketplace find health coverage that fits their budget and meets their needs.
