Elliot: How does the TRICARE Supplement work with drug co-pays?

TRICARE Supplement: If TRICARE covers that prescription, your supplement plan will reimburse the co-pays after your deductibles are met.


Janet: My husband is going through a psychiatric treatment of about 39 treatments. A co-pay every time. How would we be reimbursed?

TRICARE Supplement: Co-payments are paid when a claim is submitted after a deductible(s) is met (if applicable). After the co-payments are paid, submit the claim to be reimbursed.


Mike: I am a Tricare Prime Retiree and have excess out-of-pocket expenses. How can this supplemental coverage help me? What are the costs of something like this?

TRICARE Supplement: The supplement is designed to cover excess out-of-pocket expenses! Call for more details or to request additional information.


Sam: Our son has been recently diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic. We’re looking for insurance assistance for glucose monitors and insulin pumps. He is age 15.

TRICARE Supplement: We can definitely help your family! There is a six-month waiting period for pre-existing conditions, but once that time has passed, we will pick up the portion that TRICARE does not pay.


Jim: I recently got a prescription and TRICARE didn’t pay any of it. Will my Supplemental Plan cover it?

TRICARE Supplement: TRICARE covers most prescription drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Unfortunately, if TRICARE does not cover your prescription, your Supplemental Plan will not either.
