I'm not sure how to word this perfectly so it's understood.
I retired from the military and am enrolled in TriCare. I am getting ready to retire from Federal (OPM) Civilian service and will continue my FEHB (Federal Employees Health Benefits) after retirement.
Medicare is the confusing part. Do I need to enroll for medical coverage. What part of Medicare do I need? Medically I think I'm covered. Is it in my best interest to pay for another medical monthly premium?
Thank you, Justin
Yes you should get tricare (prime if you are near a military base). Tricare is very inexpensive compared to your Federal Health Care insurance. I pay about $55/month and that covers my wife and kids. Co-payments for them is low too. I am retired military and also retired civil service and have had tricare since 2013. It is absolutely the best way to go.
