Health Care

As a Soldier, you and your family are entitled to service members group life insurance automatically covered by a comprehensive HMO-type military health-care plan called TRICARE that provides medical and dental care at little or no cost.

TRICARE enrollees receive most health care at a Military Treatment Facility, where a primary care manager  supervises their care. The Army health-care team is one of the biggest health-care networks in the world, utilizing state-of-the-art technology in world-renowned facilities.

A network of “preferred” or “in-network” providers adds to the services offered at MTFs. Soldiers and their families are free to make appointments with any authorized provider.

Separate programs are available for Soldiers and their families who are on remote assignment or overseas.
