TRICARE Young Adult Costs

TRICARE Young Adult costs are based on three things:

  • If you will use TRICARE Prime or Standard
  • Your sponsor's military status
  • Where you'll get care

Monthly Premiums

You must pay monthly premiums. TRICARE Young Adult premiums start each year on January 1. The current monthly premiums through December 2014 are:

  • TRICARE Young Adult Prime: $180
  • TRICARE Young Adult Standard: $156

Cost Shares and Copayments

Once you choose Prime or Standard, your costs depend on your sponsor's military status and the type of provider you see:

If you get care at a military hospital or clinic, any type of care usually costs $0. If you enroll in TRICARE Young Adult Prime, you will have the same priorities for care as other TRICARE Prime enrollees there. If you enroll in TRICARE Young Adult Standard, you can only get care at a military hospital or clinic when they have space available.
