Military retirees enrolled in Tricare Prime now can choose to have premiums deducted from their retired pay via allotments. The allotments are being phased in between August and November. All transactions will be handled by the three TRICARE regional representatives. This option went into effect in August for the West region, September for the North and is set for October for the South with the first pay deductions starting the following month.
