They’re all TRICARE Qualifying Life Events, also known as QLEs. QLEs can affect your TRICARE coverage.

FALLS CHURCH, Va. – What do moving, getting married, having a baby, and retiring from active duty have in common? They’re all TRICARE Qualifying Life Events, also known as QLEs. QLEs can affect your TRICARE coverage. Join TRICARE Thursday, Aug. 10, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET for the “Moving, Marriage, and More: What TRICARE QLEs Mean for You” webinar.

“You’re likely to have multiple TRICARE QLEs throughout your life,” said Sarah Kern-Wilson, a health system specialist in the Defense Health Agency’s TRICARE Health Plan Customer Support Branch. “You can plan for some, but others may be less expected. So it’s important to know what counts as a QLE and what to do if you or a family member has one.”

As outlined in the TRICARE Qualifying Life Events Fact Sheet, you can make eligible changes to your TRICARE health plan within 90 days of a QLE. If you have a TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select plan, a QLE may be your only opportunity to change your plan outside of TRICARE Open Season.

During the webinar, you’ll learn the types of family, military, and government-directed changes that count as QLEs. TRICARE experts will walk you through some of the most common QLEs, including:

The presenters will share how these life changes may affect your eligibility and steps to take after you or a family member has a QLE. You’ll also have a chance to ask questions.

Registration for the Aug. 10 webinar is limited, so don’t wait to sign up. If you can’t attend this webinar, keep an eye on TRICARE Webinars for a recording.
