NEW! TRICARE SelectStarting on January 1, 2018, TRICARE Select replaces TRICARE Standard and Extra. TRICARE Select is a self-managed, preferred provider network plan.

TRICARE Select Group A beneficiaries have not previously paid enrollment fees. 

TRICARE Select Group A retirees must contact their regional contractor before the end of TRICARE Open Season to set up a monthly enrollment fee payment by allotment, if feasible. Beneficiaries will be disenrolled for failure to pay enrollment fees.
