Have TRICARE For Life Questions? Register for Sept. 29 Webinar

By TRICARE Communications

Will you soon be eligible for Medicare and TRICARE coverage? If yes, be sure to join the TRICARE webinar, “How to Get Started With Medicare and TRICARE,” on Sept. 29, from noon to 1 p.m. Central Time. This webinar will help you learn the basics of TRICARE For Life, or TFL, and the steps to take to get TFL coverage. You must register to participate.
What is TFL? TFL provides Medicare-wraparound coverage to military retirees and their family members who are eligible for Medicare Part A, Part B, and TRICARE. As described in the TRICARE For Life Handbook, once you’re entitled to Medicare Part A, have Part B, and show as TRICARE eligible in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS), you automatically get TFL benefits.
“Medicare Part A and Part B are the two parts of Medicare that are critical for you to be eligible for TRICARE For Life,” said Anne Breslin, TRICARE For Life program manager with the Defense Health Agency. “Most of us become eligible for Medicare when we turn age 65.”
If you or a family member are turning age 65 soon, join the webinar for important information and resources. The webinar will highlight things you need to know, like when to sign up for Medicare so you don’t have a break in your TRICARE coverage and get your TFL benefits on time. It will also cover how you get care with TFL, Medicare providers, Medicare and TRICARE covered services, and TFL costs.
A Q&A will follow the presentation. Make sure to register for the Sept. 29 TRICARE webinar for a chance to participate. Registration for the webinar is limited.
