Prime Enrollment Fees

If you have TRICARE Prime, you must pay enrollment fees, unless you are:

  • An active duty service member
  • An active duty family member
  • A transitional survivor
  • Under age 65 with Medicare Parts A and B
    • In this case, you can have your enrollment fees waived and any payments made refunded.

TRICARE Prime Enrollment fees increase annually. For current costs, visit the TRICARE Compare Cost Tool.

Three years after your sponsor’s death…

If you're a surviving spouse, your coverage changes to the same as retired family members. You must pay a single enrollment fee to remain enrolled in TRICARE Prime. Surviving children’s coverage doesn't change.

What happens when I retire from active duty?

You will need to re-enroll and begin paying annual enrollment fees to continue coverage. >>Learn More about Retiring
