TRICARE, the Military Healthcare System’s managed care program, has been in operation in South Carolina since 1996. In partnership with Humana Military Healthcare Services and Blue Cross/Blue Shield of South Carolina, a large, robust network of civilian providers has been established in the Columbia metropolitan area.

TRICARE offers two options for eligible beneficiaries: Prime and Select. TRICARE Select offers beneficiaries the widest choice of providers and facilities but also has the highest cost-sharing requirements. Family members of active-duty personnel, retirees and retiree family members are encouraged to enroll in TRICARE Prime.

Contact TRICARE at 800-TRICARE (874-2273) or visit to register or for more information.
