Webinar set for new TRICARE Young Adult program

  • Published
TRICARE and Military OneSource officials have teamed up to host an interactive webinar Monday, April 11,  from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT about the new TRICARE Young Adult program.

Military parents and dependent children under age 26 are encouraged to participate. The webinar will cover who qualifies for TYA, when and where to enroll and what type of coverage to expect.

TRICARE officials will take the first hour to provide details about the new TYA program, leaving the last 30 minutes to answer questions from beneficiaries submitted online or over the phone.

Those who plan on submitting questions, should avoid sharing personal health information.

To register for TRICARE's TYA webinar with Military OneSource visit: www.militaryonesource.com/MOS/OnlineCommunity/Webinars.aspx.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited due to system capacity.  For those who are unable to register due to registration reaching maximum capacity, a recording of the Webinar will be provided and posted to TRICARE's website after the event.

TYA is a result of a provision in the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act that extends premium-based health coverage to eligible dependent children until age 26. For more on TYA, visit: www.tricare.mil/tya.
