TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – Each fall, TRICARE Open Season allows you to enroll in or change your TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select plan for the next year. Now is the time to request a Primary Care Manager at David Grant USAF Medical Center with TRICARE Prime.
During this time, eligible TRICARE beneficiaries will have the option to enroll in or change their health plan before the season ends December 9. Eligible beneficiaries can also enroll in or change their Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program. Open Season is the only time beneficiaries can switch or enroll in a plan, unless you have a Qualifying Life Event.
TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Select enrollees have the option to switch plans, if preferred. For those who wish to stay in their current TRICARE health care plan, no further action is required. You will continue in your current health plan through 2020 or for as long as you are eligible. Active duty service members do not need to take any action, until retirement.
If you are not enrolled with a health care plan, now is the time to take action. If you do not enroll into a TRICARE Prime plan beginning Jan. 1, 2020, you can only get care at military hospitals and clinics, if you are an eligible beneficiary and space is available. This includes pharmacy services.
David Grant USAF Medical Center is committed to providing the best healthcare to our active duty service members, dependents, retirees and eligible veterans. By enrolling with TRICARE Prime at David Grant USAF Medical Center, you will receive priority access to healthcare services at our Sacramento and Fairfield, California locations at a lower annual premium cost. Another benefit to switching to TRICARE Prime is that you can reduce your out-of-pocket health care expenses.
Switching to TRICARE PRIME with DGMC will result in immediate savings, with no co-pays or cost shares, for healthcare provided to you and your families here in our hospital.
