QLE?

Moving

Sometimes.

Relocation must be to a new country, and/or city, region, or zip +4 code to be a QLE. You have 90 days from the date of your address change to change your health plan.

Where you move determines which TRICARE Prime Option you’ll use: 

  • TRICARE Prime
  • TRICARE Prime Remote
  • TRICARE Prime Overseas
  • TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas

Moving Within the Same TRICARE Region

  • If you move to another Prime Service Area, simply change your primary care manager.
  • If you move to a remote area, call your regional contractor to transfer to TRICARE Prime Remote.

Moving to Another TRICARE Region

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.
