Health insurance available for retired military personnel

Tricare for Life is Tricare’s Medicare-wraparound coverage available to all Medicare-eligible beneficiaries, provided they have Medicare Parts A and B.
While Medicare is one’s primary insurance, Tricare acts as the secondary payer. Tricare benefits include covering Medicare’s co-insurance and deductible.
All retired military personnel – including active duty, National Guard, and reserve – who receive retired pay are eligible.
