tricare standard

I am retired Navy (medical) and already have health care through my employer (which I pay for). Can I use Tricare standard or extra to pay deductables and whatever my current plan does not cover? Also, where can I get a list of in network providers for Tricare standard?

Hello, and thanks for writing! I'll address your question in two parts... the first one is easy: You can find approved providers for TRICARE Standard at this link:;jsessionid=QYKGBht1vn7cyjG1mLCxH27tQHMYrwJnpkZx3nGMTQpyGzt3yV2T!1332889845?puri=%2Fhome%2FMedical%2FFindingAProvider

If you have a doctor you'd like to keep using on TRICARE, but he or she is not currently a participating TRICARE network provider, you can also use a link on that site (check the buttons along the right side) to invite that doctor or other care provider to join TRICARE.

Your other question I'm going to do a bit of digging on to make sure I get you a good answer... Insurance is covered by State law, and anything involving the coordination of two plans can be tricky. Stay tuned!
