|If you have lost your military health care coverage or will lose it soon, the Continued Health Care Benefit Program (CHCBP) can protect you in the interim between military health benefits and civilian health care.
CHCBP acts as a bridge between military health benefits and your new civilian health plan. CHCBP benefits are comparable to TRICARE Standard with the same benefits, providers and program rules. The main difference is that you pay premiums to participate.
You are not required to purchase this health care coverage. Participation in CHCBP is completely optional. However, enrollment in CHCBP may be in your best interest.
If you qualify, you can purchase CHCBP within 60 days of loss of eligibility from the following programs: Active Duty, Transitional Assistance Management Program (TAMP), TRICARE Reserve Select (TRS), TRICARE Retired Reserve (TRR), TRICARE for Life (TFL) or TRICARE Young Adult (TYA).
