Tricare Prime And Medicare A & B


teejay53

Question

Good morning all;

I called Tricare yesterday with a question. I was told something I did not know and thought it was worth sharing here.

I was told by all the representatives at Tricare that I had called that when my Medicare A& B started I was automatically moved to Tricare For Life whether I was 65 or younger.

Well, I found out yesterday that is not correct.

The representative I spoke to yesterday was new and not sure of this and put me on hold while she called the higher ups. She came back on the phone and told me that a person can stay on Tricare Prime up til the age of 65 even if they have Medicare A & B with NO Tricare Prime monthly fees.

When they reach age 65, they are automatically changes over to Tricare for Life.

So, if anyone is under 65 and on Medicare A & B then I was told that they have the option to stay on Tricare Prime as secondary insurance and pay no fees each month.

Everyone have a great day,

teejay
