Tricare and You – Disasters and Emergencies

As much as we try to plan for them and prepare for them, disasters and emergencies happen. Floods, earthquakes, hurricanes can cause disruption and dislocation to you and your loved ones. During the disaster you may need medical care more than ever. In the event that an emergency does happen, TRICARE takes steps to help you cope.

TRICARE and You: Prime remote

Because of the nature of our Service, Coast Guard members and their families are often stationed in remote locations. Remote locations often mean that you aren’t stationed near a military treatment facility and health care resources in your area may not be as available as they are in more populated regions. This is why the TRICARE Prime Remote plan exists! Read the full post to learn about eligibility and further details of the plan.
