Injured on Active Duty 

Sometimes.

Only injury or illness that results in medical retirement is a QLE. For more, visit the Medical Retirement QLE page.

We have many programs and benefits available if you were injured on active duty. How you get your care depends on your current military status. 

Active Duty Service Members

  • You have one of TRICARE's Prime plans.
  • Your primary care manager coordinates your care.
  • You may also qualify for programs offered through the Department of Defense, your Service, or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
  • We offer special benefits, including respite care, for caregivers of wounded, ill, and injured service members.

National Guard and Reserve Members

  • If you were on active duty for more than 30 days when injured, your benefits are the same as an active duty service member (see above).
