TRICARE For Life - Is it right for me?

TRICARE for Life is a medical benefits package offered by TRICARE for those who have retired from the military. This plan requires you to have Medicare Part B. To determine whether or not this is the right plan for you, you need to know if you are eligible for Part B. The plan works by covering the remaining costs that Medicare doesn’t cover. In some cases, if you are in need of services not covered by Part B, you will have to pay the same amount any standard TRICARE recipient might pay. This can also cover your family and legal dependents; of course they do not need to be on Medicare in order to reap the rewards from the benefits.

There are generally no costs associated with this plan as long as whatever you need medically is covered my Medicare. This is a great plan because TRICARE will pay for everything that Medicare does cover. If you are eligible for Medicare Part B and a retired service member, it is a good idea to see if you are eligible for these benefits.
