TRICARE Retired Reserve (TRR) is a premium-based health plan that qualified Retired Reserve members and survivors may purchase. TRR offers coverage similar to TRICARE Standard and Extra.
Who is eligible?
Retired National Guard and Reserve personnel may qualify
to purchase TRR coverage if they are:
- members of the Retired Reserve of a Reserve component of the armed forces
- under the age of 60 and,
- not eligible for, or enrolled in, the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program.
TRR is only available when you are not eligible for any other non-premium-based TRICARE health coverage. Qualified members may purchase Member-Only or Member-and-Family coverage.
How do I enroll?
To purchase TRR, you must access the request form (DD Form 2896-1) through the Reserve Component Purchase TRICARE Application
(RCPTA). To access the RCPTA, you will need a CAC, DFAS Pin, or DS Logon. For those members who do not have a CAC or DFAS Pin, you can register for a DS Logon account. Follow the prompts for completing the TRR request form, print, and mail or fax your completed TRR request form, along with two month's premium payment, to Humana Military within the specified deadline. Initial premium payment can be paid by check, money order or cashier's check (payable to Humana Military), or by Visa®/MasterCard®.
Also at the time of your initial enrollment, you must select an automated monthly payment option for subsequent monthly TRR premiums. Complete either an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or Recurring Credit Card for Charge form and submit with your TRR Request Form and first two month’s premium payment.
If you are disenrolled for failure to pay your monthly premium payment or voluntarily terminate coverage, there is a one-year purchase lock-out. Premium payments made for periods following the loss of eligibility will be refunded.
Qualifying Life Events
There are qualifying life events (QLE) such as a birth, marriage or divorce which allow TRR family members to enroll with an effective date of the QLE as long as the enrollment request is received within 60 days of the event.
Reaching age 60
When you become eligible for TRICARE Prime/Standard/Extra at age 60, the TRR coverage is automatically terminated and you must submit a Prime enrollment form in order to enroll in Prime. Transitioning from TRR to TRICARE Prime may result in a break in coverage - the 20th of the month rule applies to the submission of the Prime enrollment form. TPR and TPRADFM are not available.
How do I pay my fees electronically?
Effective January 1, 2013, direct billing will no longer be an option. All accounts must select an automated monthly deduction through either EFT or automatic cred/debit card withdrawal.Learn more from TRICARE
