Low Cost Health Insurance
All eligible members of the Selected Reserve may qualify to purchase coverage under TRICARE Reserve Select (TRS). You must be a member of the Selected Reserve or the Ready Reserve, and you cannot be eligible for or enrolled in the Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) program (or currently covered under FEHB).
You’ll pay a monthly premium for health care coverage, just like most civilians do in their employer’s health care plans. The monthly premiums are:
- $50.75 for TRS member-only coverage*
- $205.62 for TRS member and family coverage*
TRICARE Reserve Select offers coverage similar to TRICARE Standard and Extra. For more information on your costs and coverage, go to www.tricare.mil and enter your profile in the "My Benefit" portal.
Eligibility for TRICARE Reserve Select is determined by the Defense Enrollment Eligibility System. You can enroll or find out if you qualify for low cost health insurance through the Guard and Reserve website at www.dmdc.osd.mil. You will soon learn why the Army Reserve offers some of the best part time jobs with health insurance.
