Moving

Your TRICARE eligibility doesn’t change when you move. But it may change your health plan options. Keep these things in mind when you know you’re about to move:

  • Don’t disenroll from any plan before you move.
  • You’re covered by your current plan on your way to your new location.
  • Make sure you tell your regional contractor and all doctors if you have other health insurance in addition to TRICARE, such as Medicare or an employer-sponsored health insurance.
  • Update your address and other personal information in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) after you move.

Do you have a child with special needs?

Talk to your child’s case manager and regional contractor before you move. They can help you find a new doctor and other resources so the transition is smooth with no interruptions in coverage.

The first thing you should do after you move is update DEERS with your new address, phone number and other personal information. For detailed information about your situation and a summary of what you need to do, visit www.tricare.mil/LifeEvents/Moving.
