New Features of the TRICARE Website
The TRICARE website is your first stop when you have questions about your benefit. At the start of the New Year, we introduced some redesigned features on the TRICARE website that make it easier for you to take command of your health. Beyond the new look and feel of the website, new features and tools will now help you find what you’re looking for quicker. Check out these improvements to the TRICARE website:
- Find Information Faster. Need to compare TRICARE plans, find a doctor or find a phone number? Three new search wizards on the home page have been optimized to make sure you’ll answer fewer questions and get to your results faster. Use the Find a TRICARE Plan, Find a Doctor and Find a Phone Number tools to see what plans you qualify for, locate a nearby provider or get contact information.
- Understand Your Benefit. TRICARE is changing, so the TRICARE website is better organized to help you quickly understand your benefit. Use the TRICARE website to know what’s covered or what a qualifying life event is. Need to submit a claim or file a form? You’ll find “Forms and Claims” in the top navigation bar.
- Access TRICARE On-the-Go. According to Pew Research Center, half of smartphone users use their phone to look up health information, and 62 percent used their smartphone to look up a health condition. With that in mind, the TRICARE website has been improved for viewing on mobile devices.
And while you’re here, now is the perfect time to tackle that to-do list: schedule your next appointment, change your primary care manager, review costs and much more. Take command of your health and your health care in 2018.
