TRICARE Health Program

Open season is here. Be sure to make your choice for 2020 health coverage before open season ends on Dec. 9. If you need help picking a TRICARE health plan or a plan through the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), join TRICARE for the open season webinar on Nov. 21, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET. Presenters will discuss your options for 2020 health care, dental, and vision coverage. And presenters will answer questions.

Each fall, TRICARE Open Season allows you to enroll in or change your TRICARE Prime (including US Family Health Plan) or TRICARE Select plan for the next year. The Federal Benefits Open Season allows those eligible for FEDVIP dental or vision coverage to enroll in a plan or change their enrollment (for example, individual to family). This webinar will discuss both open seasons.

“If you’re looking to make a change to your health, dental, or vision care, now is the time to act,” said Mark Ellis, chief of the Policy and Programs Section of the TRICARE Health Plan at the Defense Health Agency. “During the webinar, experts can help you explore options and explain how to participate in open season.”

Likewise, you can visit the FEDVIP website to learn more about your options for dental and vision coverage next year. Check your eligibility for FEDVIP, compare FEDVIP plans and rates, and more.

Before you change your plan, remember that if you want to stay in your current TRICARE health plan, you don’t have to take any action during open season. You’ll continue in your current health plan through 2020 or as long as you’re eligible. Similarly, you don’t have to enroll in a FEDVIP plan each year. Once you’re enrolled in a FEDVIP dental or vision plan, your coverage automatically continues as long as you remain eligible for the program.

To learn more about open season and navigate your TRICARE and FEDVIP options, don’t miss the Nov. 21 webinar. A Q&A led by the presenters will follow the presentation.  Register today.
