TRICARE Standard and Extra

TRICARE Standard and Extra is a fee-for-service plan available in the United States. 

  • You don't have to enroll—coverage is automatic as long as you are registered in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System and show eligible for TRICARE.
  • Meets requirements for minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Who Can Participate?

  • Active duty family members
  • Retired service members and their families
  • Family members of activated Guard/Reserve members 
  • Non-activated Guard/Reserve members and their families who qualify for care under the Transitional Assistance Management Program
  • Retired Guard/Reserve members (age 60 and receiving retired pay) and their families
  • Survivors
  • Medal of Honor recipients and their families
  • Qualified former spouses

How it Works

Schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized provider, network or non-network. >>Find a Doctor

  • If you visit a non-network provider, you're using the Standard option.
  • If you visit a network provider, you're using the Extra option.

Referrals not required, but you may need prior authorization from your regional contractor for some services.

Is TRICARE Standard and Extra Right for You?

  • Active duty service members (including activated Guard/Reserve members) can't use TRICARE Standard and Extra. 
  • TRICARE Standard and Extra may be the right choice for you if you have a provider who is not in the TRICARE network and you don't want to change providers.
  • If you live in an area where TRICARE Prime is not available, TRICARE Standard and Extra may be your only option.
