New TRICARE Coverage for Retired Reserve

Week of September 13, 2010
For the first time, members of the Retired Reserve who are not yet age 60, the so-called "gray area" retirees, can purchase TRICARE health coverage for themselves and their eligible family members with the recent launch of the TRICARE Retired Reserve. Retired reservists may qualify to purchase TRR coverage if they are under the age of 60 and are not eligible for, or enrolled in, the Federal Employees Health Benefits program. They also must be members of the Retired Reserve of a Reserve component and qualified for non-regular retirement. For instructions on how to qualify for and purchase TRR, visit the TRICARE Retired Reserve webpage (http://www.tricare.mil/trr).
