Tricare Information Now Housed Under One Internet Roof
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2006 Tricare beneficiaries will get a pleasant surprise the next time they visit Tricare Online. The Web site has a new name, a new look and a new home. It’s now part of Tricare.mil, the official Web site for all Tricare information.
“We reorganized the Web site with our beneficiaries in mind,” said Army Maj. Gen. Elder Granger, deputy director, Tricare Management Activity. “Now they can go to one site to look up benefit information, schedule an appointment or track claims. Everything’s in one place, making the site easier to use.”
Tricare.mil comprises five main content areas:
-- My Health (Tricare Online) -- personal health information and online appointment scheduling for Tricare Prime enrollees;
-- My Benefit -- Tricare benefit information;
-- MHS Staff -- resources for Military Health System staff members;
-- Tricare Providers -- information for Tricare network providers; and
-- Pressroom -- the latest news about Tricare and the military health system.
In the next phase of Web site improvements, beneficiaries will be able to enter their profile and receive benefit information tailored to them. Tricare expects this feature to be available in winter of 2007.
