Your earned health care benefit is there for you in all phases of military life and beyond. But how you use it — and what you need from it — may change direction.


MOAA is here to help.


This TRICARE Guide is here to answer your questions about health care and benefit options, and to chart territory that may be new to you. It draws on the in-depth expertise of MOAA’s advisers, who keep up with the latest developments and point the way forward for you and your family.


Below, find details on all manner of TRICARE topics, MOAA advocacy efforts on behalf of your earned benefits, and much more. Have a question we didn't cover? Reach out to our Member Support Center at or (800) 234-6622.
