Beneficiaries Using TRICARE Reserve Select

If entitled to Medicare Part A, you're not required to have Medicare Part B to purchase TRICARE Reserve Select.

Even though you aren’t required to have Medicare Part B, we strongly encourage you to enroll in Part B when you are first eligible. Although TRICARE treats you as an active duty family member while enrolled, Medicare doesn't consider your sponsor to be actively employed by the military. If you don't enroll in Part B when you're first eligible, you may be required to pay the Medicare Part B Late Enrollment PenaltyYour monthly premium for Part B may go up 10% for each full 12-month period that you could have had Part B, but didn't sign up for it..
