When You Use the TRICARE SUPPLEMENT
With a TRICARE supplement plan, a trip to the doctor means TRICARE Select covers 75% of provider’s fee, while your TRICARE supplemental insurance picks up the remaining 25% – and you’re 100% covered. Once you reach the Supplement Plan deductible, there are simply no further costs while your supplemental insurance kicks in to cover your balances.
Supplemental insurance always pays after TRICARE pays. So, after your TRICARE SUPPLEMENTAL INSURANCE PLAN pays its portion of the bill, the supplemental insurance pays your provider direct or reimburses you, the TRICARE beneficiary, for out-of-pocket medical expenses you will have paid to civilian providers to cover their charges.
Although the Plan works in all 50 States, the Plan is currently not available in CO, ME, NH, OR, WA.
