Loss of Eligibility
When you lose eligibility for TRICARE:
- Each member of your family will get a termination notice telling you that you're no longer covered by TRICARE.
- You also lose your minimum essential coverage, so you'll need to make some decisions about your health care.
If you don’t have new minimum essential coverage before your TRICARE or transitional benefits end, then you may have to pay a fee to the Internal Revenue Service for each month you don’t have minimum essential coverage.
