“Take Command” Communications Qualifying Life Events Toolkit

“Take Command” Communications Qualifying Life Events Toolkit

Since 1 January 2018, TRICARE contract reforms began to help improve healthcare delivery and medical readiness. On 1 January 2019, beneficiaries were only able to enroll in or make changes to TRICARE PrimeA managed care option available in Prime Service Areas in the United States; you have an assigned primary care manager who provides most of your care.TRICARE Prime or 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 is a fee-for-service option in the United States that allows you to get care from any TRICARE-authorized provider.  Enrollment is required to participate. TRICARE Select plans if they had a Qualifying Life Event, or QLE, outside of TRICARE Open Season. Previously, they could enroll in or change from one TRICARE healthcare plan to another as desired.

The purpose of this toolkit is to promote the awareness of beneficiaries to these TRICARE enrollment changes, advance competency and patient activation on the issue, as there is a year-long Defense Health Agency (DHA) QLE education plan in place across healthcare locations. As a result, the DHA will send out a QLE education toolkit every 30-45 days, with each one containing a variety of products to help instruct on QLE and TRICARE health plan information.

QLE Toolkit 1, just released on 19 March, contains information on divorce and marriage as qualifying life events. The next installment, set for late April 2019, will cover change of address and in family composition.
