TRICARE continues to provide coverage for family members when a sponsor dies. Family member health plan options and costs will vary based on:
- The sponsor's military status when he/she dies
- If the surviving family member is a spouse or child
The scenarios below provide an overview of survivor coverage. Spouses remain eligible unless they remarry.
Not sure if your sponsor was on active duty when he/she died?
Contact a casualty assistance officer or your sponsor’s unit/service personnel office.
