Guidance for Family Members of Deployed Soldiers
When your sponsor deploys, you have several health care options:
Important Points to Consider:
TRICARE Prime Remote
TRICARE Prime Remote for Active Duty Family Members is an option for family members who resided with a TRICARE Prime Remote-eligible sponsor before the sponsor left their home station, mobilization site, or deployment location, if the family member continues to reside there. If they relocate to another remote area while their sponsor is deployed, they should plan to use TRICARE Standard/Extra.
To quality for TRICARE Prime Remote for Active Duty Family Members, family members of activated Reservists must reside with the sponsor in a TRICARE Prime Remote zip code at the time of mobilization. The sponsor need not be TRICARE Prime Remote- eligible.
TRICARE Dental Plan (TDP)
If you, as an Active Duty family member, are enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Plan, you may continue your enrollment and use dentists in the area where you are temporarily relocating. Visit the TDP website
