Being able to use TRICARE depends on you keeping your information up to date in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). TRICARE eligibility shows up in DEERS based on the sponsor’s status. It is essential to keep your DEERS record up to date to get timely and effective TRICARE benefits.
When to Update DEERS?
Active-duty service members are automatically registered in DEERS when they join the military, however, service members must add their eligible family members in DEERS. You should update DEERS anytime you experience a qualifying life event (QLE). A QLE can include marriage, divorce, birth or adoption, or retirement from active duty. A QLE opens a 90-day period for you to make eligible enrollment changes. A qualifying life event for one family member means all family members may make enrollment changes. Make sure to check that your address, duty status, phone numbers and email addresses are correct. If you don’t, you may miss important information and enrollment deadlines.

A referral is when your primary care manager or provider sends you to another provider for care. You may also need pre-approval, or prior authorization, for coverage of certain care. Prior authorization is a review of a requested health care service by your regional contractor to see if TRICARE will cover it.
