TRICARE Prime Options

You may enroll in one of the following TRICARE Prime Options during the TAMP period:

Re-Enroll in Your Prime Option

If enrolled in one of these Prime options when you were on active duty, you must re-enroll to continue coverage during the TAMP period:

  • Re-enroll online or send a new enrollment form to your regional contractor or the US Family Health Plan designated provider
  • Send it before you leave active duty so there is no break in coverage.
  • Your enrollment date is retroactive to your separation date.

If you are eligible for TAMP, but do not live in a Prime Service Area or US Family Health Plan Service Area, you're automatically covered under TRICARE Standard and Extra or TRICARE Standard Overseas.

TRICARE Prime Remote and TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas are not available during TAMP. If you were enrolled in one these programs, you will be disenrolled and will be covered by TRICARE Standard and Extra or TRICARE Standard Overseas.

Your Coverage

During TAMP, you and your family are covered as active duty family members and all rules for that beneficiary category apply to you, including any applicable deductibles, cost shares, and copayments.

Other Health Insurance

If you have other health insurance upon separation, TRICARE will pay after the other health plan.
