TRICARE podcast returns with focus on TRICARE For Life

By TRICARE Communications

Are you ready to listen to a new season of “Get to Know TRICARE?” If so, we’ve got more episodes headed your way.

“Get to Know TRICARE” is a podcast launched this year to help people learn more about your TRICARE benefit. From news about COVID-19 to tips to help save on out-of-pocket health care costs, the podcast is a convenient way to get needed TRICARE information and help get the most out of your benefit. With this new series, we’re taking a look at TRICARE For Life, or TFL.
“We’re excited to start this series around TFL,” said Calvin Keller, the podcast host and a member of the Defense Health Agency’s Communications Division, Benefit Education and Research Team. “Some of our retired service members or their eligible family members will turn 65 soon, and they may have questions about TFL and how it works. We want to use the podcast as another resource to answer their questions and help them understand what steps they need to take to get coverage.”
The first podcast episode, “Turning 65 Soon? Start Your TFL Checklist,” outlines some of those key steps in an interview with Lennya Bonivento, a health systems analyst and TFL expert at the Defense Health Agency.

This is the first of three episodes that will be released as part of the “TRICARE For Life 101” series. Other episodes in this series will explore the different parts of Medicare and providers you can use.
