  2. Update your address in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System

TRICARE Prime Remote isn’t available everywhere. You may have different health plan options when you move. Check the Plan Finder to learn more.

Moving Within the Same TRICARE Region

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.

  • East Region—Humana Military: 1-800-444-5445
  • West Region—Health Net: 1-844-866-9378
  • Overseas—International SOS

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.

If you move overseas, family members must be command-sponsored to enroll in TRICARE Prime Overseas or TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas. If not command-sponsored, they can use TRICARE Select
