DOD “Fixes” Gap in Reserve Coverage:

The Defense Department’s Tricare Management Activity has created a new policy to prevent a break in Tricare Prime coverage for family members of National Guard and Reserve members recalled to active duty. A TMA news release calls the new policy, which authorizes a 30-day retroactive Prime enrollment period, “a seamless transition” from Tricare Prime coverage under the Transitional Assistance Management Program to the “same coverage as an active duty family member.”
