Do you have any changes that you would like to make in your coverage? Or do you have any questions? We know that a lot can change in a year. Now it’s the time to prepare and make those changes for your needs. 

A change in lifestyles, such as having a child, marriage or divorce, or simply a life event, may require you to have a different coverage plan. Open season allows you to compare the prices of various plans to find the one that is most appropriate for your situation. Benefits can be changed during this time to reflect your current life circumstances.  

Here are some tips that might help you decide what plan features are best suited for you:

  1. Markdown the dates
  2. Know your network 
  3. Take all factors into account
  4. Take time to review all coverage details
  5. Most importantly: Ask questions!

Open Season will begin November 8, 2021, and end December 14, 2021, for the Plan Year starting January 1, 2022. Open Season is when you can change your TRICARE plan or disenroll from your current plan. USFHP’s TRICARE Prime plan offers a wide range of benefits to its members, including routine doctor visits to a self-selected primary care physician, specialty care, hospitalization, urgent and emergent care, and prescription coverage.
