Tripler TRICARE Plus


Separate and distinct from TFL is TRICARE Plus (T-Plus), in which TRICARE-eligible individuals and families choose to receive their primary care at a local MTF.

The following “Age In” patient category has priority in TRICARE Plus if the patient meets the following criteria:

  • Have been enrolled in TRICARE Prime for the two years immediately preceding their 65th birthday and who are assigned to the MTF primary care provider for the past two years as a TRICARE Prime beneficiary.
  • Enrolled in Medicare Part B at age 65. Please note that TRICARE Plus enrollment is based on an MTF’s capacity to continue to meet TRICARE Prime appointment standards. Therefore, not everyone eligible for TRICARE Plus can be enrolled in the MTF Program. TRICARE Plus is not portable to other MTFs.
