Survivors of Retired Service Members
If a sponsor dies after retiring from active duty (either regular or a medical retirement), surviving family members remain eligible for TRICARE with the same health plan options and costs they had before their sponsor passed away.
Surviving spouses remain eligible for TRICARE unless they remarry and children remain eligible until they age out or lose eligibility for TRICARE for other reasons.
Health Care Options
- TRICARE Prime
- TRICARE Select
- TRICARE Select Overseas
- US Family Health Plan (in specific U.S. locations)
- TRICARE For Life (if you have Medicare Part A and B)
