Coast Guard, U.S. Public Health Service and NOAA commissioned corps retirees now can pay TRICARE Select or Overseas Program Select enrollment fees by allotment. The change will allow these retirees to have their enrollment fees automatically deducted from their retirement pay. To participate, retirees should contact their TRICARE contractor.

The East Region contractor is Humana Military; the West Region contractor is Health Net Federal Services LLC. Overseas beneficiaries should contact International SOS Government Services, Inc., or the TRICARE Overseas Program Regional Call Center.


Under the plan, individuals pay $12.50 per month or $150 per year. For families, the monthly enrollment fee is $25; the annual fee is $300.
