Select Enrollment Fees

Starting Jan. 1, 2021
Are you a Group A retired beneficiary? You're in Group A if your initial enlistment or appointment or that of your uniformed services sponsor began before Jan. 1, 2018. If you're a Group A retired beneficiary, you'll pay a monthly TRICARE Select enrollment fee to maintain your TRICARE Select coverage.

Only those family members enrolled in TRICARE Select (with a Group A retiree sponsor) pay the new enrollment fee. If enrollment is only for one family member, then they would pay the individual enrollment fee, not the family enrollment fee. For example, if one family member is enrolled in TRICARE Prime and another is enrolled in TRICARE Select , you'll pay the appropriate enrollment fees for both plans. Remember that you pay TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Select individual and family fees separately.

The new TRICARE Select enrollment fees for a Group A retired beneficiary are:

  • For an individual plan, you'll pay $12.60 per month or $150 annually.
  • For a family plan, you'll pay $26.00 per month or $300 annually.
  • The catastrophic cap https://tricare.mil/Costs/Cost-Terms will increase from $3,000 to $3,500.
  • Your TRICARE Select enrollment fees will apply towards your catastrophic cap.
  • Your enrollment fee will be waived if you're:

  • An active duty family member
  • A medically retired retiree or family member
  • A survivor of an active duty sponsor or medically retired retires
  • Do you use TRICARE For Life , TRICARE Prime , TRICARE Reserve Select , TRICARE Retired Reserve , or TRICARE Young Adult ?

  • If so, this change won't affect you. This information is for you only if you're enrolled in TRICARE Select .
