TRICARE and Medicare work together
TRICARE and Medicare both provide the beneficiary with coverage. Medicare is the primary payer for services covered by both Medicare and TRICARE. TRICARE acts as the secondary payer, covering the beneficiary's out-of-pocket costs, Medicare deductibles, and cost shares (similar to a Medicare supplement). If the beneficiary has other health insurance (OHI), TRICARE will pay after Medicare and the OHI have paid.
