  • If you move to another Prime Service Area, simply change your primary care manager.

You can begin your enrollment transfer before you move. To start the process, call your new contractor as soon as you know you’re moving.

Starting the process over the phone before you move is the easiest and fastest way to transfer your TRICARE Prime enrollment. You can also transfer your enrollment online (in the U.S. only) or by mail after you move.
