TRICARE Prime Remote (TPR) provides healthcare coverage
through civilian providers for those U.S. Uniformed Service
Members and their families who are on remote assignment. It
applies to members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force,
Coast Guard, U.S. Public Health Service, and National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration.
You must live AND work more than 50 miles or approximately
one hour’s drive time from the nearest Military Treatment
Facility. TPR is offered in the 50 United States only.
Permanently assigned active duty members and their families:
Members must live AND work more than 50 miles or approximately
one hour’s drive time from the nearest MTF.
Active duty family members are eligible to enroll in TPRADFM
if they reside with their sponsor in a TPR location and the
sponsor is eligible for TPR. The Service member must be eligible
for TPR for family members to be eligible for TPRADFM.
Reserve Component (RC) members and their families:
RC members are eligible for TPR if activated for more than
30 consecutive days. Members must live AND work more than
50 miles or approximately one hour’s drive time from the nearest
MTF. It is key that you properly register your residence address
RC family members’ eligibility in TPRADFM requires that they
and the Service member "reside with" one another
in a TPR ZIP code. "Reside with" means that eligible
family members resided with the Service member on the effective
date of the Reservist’s orders and remain living at the residence.
The RC member is not required to be enrolled in TPR for his
or her family to enroll in TPRADFM. TPR provides no-cost healthcare
for Active Duty members. A new interim Waived Charges benefit
for family members dispenses with out-of-pocket expenses.
