Introducing Qualifying Life Events: Changes in Your Life May Mean Changes to Your TRICARE Options
April 12, 2018


When life changes for you and your family, your TRICARE options may also change. With TRICARE, certain life events (like moving due to a permanent change of station, getting married or divorced, adopting or having a baby, becoming Medicare eligible or losing health coverage) are called Qualifying Life Events (QLEs).

So potential as opposed to actual problems then? Or am I still not getting your point?

As I read it, you can just use a qualifying life event (marriage, divorce, childbirth, ect) to permit a change in coverage outside of a standard benefits enrollment period. Not having TRICARE, I wouldn't know if they allowed any change at any time, and are now restricting that to QLE's, or if this is an expansion in line with civilian benefits programs.
