How does TRICARE Plus work?
TRICARE Plus gives you access to get primary care at your military hospital or clinic. You pay nothing out-of-pocket.

TRICARE Plus doesn’t cover specialty care.
If you’re a dependent parent or parent-in-law, TRICARE won’t pay for care by civilian providers, even if the military hospital or clinic refers you for care. You’re responsible for the full cost of the care.
If I enroll in TRICARE Plus, will I have minimum essential coverage?
No, but if you’re using TRICARE Plus with another TRICARE health plan, you have minimum essential coverage under that plan.
TRICARE Plus and Medicare
You don’t need to have Medicare Part B to enroll in TRICARE Plus. But, without Part B, you may not be covered by TRICARE for civilian care. >>Learn More
