Do you have questions about TRICARE For Life (TFL)? Not sure if you’re eligible for TFL, or how TFL coverage works? Join the “What is TRICARE For Life?” webinar on Feb. 27, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET to get your TFL questions answered.
The webinar will discuss TFL eligibility, when to sign up for Medicare, how to get care, and much more. Anne Breslin, the TRICARE For Life program manager at the Defense Health Agency and webinar presenter, will provide detailed information about TFL. Breslin will lead a Q&A after the presentation.
“To make sure you don’t have a break in your TRICARE coverage, it’s important to keep your information up to date in DEERS,” said Breslin. “You should also sign up for Medicare when you’re first eligible to do so. Taking both of these steps will help ensure that you get your TFL benefits on time.”
