TriCare and cruising

Anybody on TriCare and cruising full time? We're getting ready to take off and just wondered if someone had experience.

Re: TriCare and cruising

I can ask at the TriCare desk here in New London, but what is your specific question?

Also, are you Tricare Prime or Standard? And where are you cruising? It makes a big difference. If Prime, I think emergency care is covered anywhere, but routine care is only through your regional network of providers.

Re: TriCare and cruising

I think we're "tri-care for life". My specific question is if we need to physically see someone once a year, every other year, or what.

Re: TriCare and cruising

In that case I believe your primary provider will be Medicare and Tri-Care becomes your secondary provider.

I believe that's correct.

In any event, though, I think you're covered wherever you go. I'm not sure how an annual physical would work.
