This protection is a true value for members and their families. Designed to supplement TRICARE Select, MilicarePLUS gives you valuable coverage at economical group rates. It helps pay for both inpatient and outpatient care and prescription drugs. This coverage offers you options to help fit your budget and needs. Choose from the Basic, Choice, or Select Plans—you are guaranteed acceptance.*
The Basic Plan pays benefits 100% of the allowed amount TRICARE Select leaves you to pay after you pay the TRICARE Standard deductible and MilicarePLUS deductible. ($300 per person, $600 for families; for active duty $250 per person, $500 for families). It's your best bet if your doctor accepts the TRICARE assignment.
Here's how it works: The Choice Plan pays your TRICARE Select copayment once you pay the TRICARE Select deductible and MilicarePLUS deductible ($250 per person, $500 for families; active duty and retired). Then, if your covered medical bills are more than what TRICARE Select allows also known as excess charges, the Choice Plan picks up 100% of these covered costs.
Here's the FRA option that offers the highest coverage. It takes over once TRICARE makes its payment, and you have paid your TRICARE deductible. Plus, you won't need to satisfy a plan deductible with MilicarePLUS Select.
MilicarePLUS can also work with your TRICARE Prime coverage to provide valuable protection for you and your family. This plan pays your TRICARE Prime copayments for inpatient care, outpatient treatment and prescription drugs.
TRICARE Reserve Select helps provide you and your family with quality health care coverage. But like many health care plans today, it was not intended to cover everything ... The money for copays, deductibles and excess charges all come out of your own pocket. This could leave you with thousands of dollars worth of bills to pay if you're not prepared. The MilicarePLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement Plan offered to FRA shipmates can help make sure you're prepared.
That's because MilicarePLUS, teamed with TRICARE, helps pay your family's covered medical expenses - doctor visits, lab tests, prescription drugs, outpatient treatments, and Hospital stays. In fact, MilicarePLUS helps pay more of your medical bills!
The MilicarePLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement Plan pays your TRICARE Reserve Select copayments once you pay the TRICARE Reserve Select deductible and MilicarePLUS deductible ($250 per person, $500 for families). Then, if your covered medical bills are more than what TRICARE Reserve Select allows (also known as excess charges), MilicarePLUS picks up 100% of these covered costs.
That's right, MilicarePLUS pays 100% of the difference between your eligible medical bills and what TRICARE pays for those bills. Once TRICARE makes its payment, MilicarePLUS takes over. Remember, doctors and medical providers are prohibited from charging you more than 115% of the amount TRICARE allows.
As a Retired Reservist or Shipmate you may have recently become eligible to purchase the new TRICARE Retired Reserve Supplement Insurance coverage.
This is good news because you may now have TRICARE Retired Reserve as an alternative to your current healthcare coverage. In fact, it may be ideal for members who have been forgoing healthcare coverage altogether, are self-employed or who are currently covered by a more expensive civilian healthcare plan.
But as good as TRICARE Retired Reserve is, it’s not designed to cover everything. There are out-of-pockets costs for co-payments, cost-shares and excess charges that you will be responsible for.
It is for this reason that FRA pulled out all of the stops, leveraged the combined buying power of more than 80,000 Shipmates and negotiated this benefit…the FRA-endorsed MilicarePLUS TRICARE Retired Reserve Supplement Insurance Plans for members and their families.
Your acceptance is GUARANTEED!* You can’t be turned down for any reason (subject to the Pre-Exiting Conditions Limitation).
In addition, you qualify for affordable, members-only rates with MilicarePLUS…rates that have been specifically negotiated for FRA members. (The same is true for your spouse and children.)
*This policy is guaranteed acceptance, but it does contain a Pre-Existing Condition Limitation. Please refer to the Insurance Enrollment Form and Brochure for more information on exclusions and limitations, such as Pre-Existing Conditions.
Coverage may vary and may not be available to residents of all states.
Benefits Exclusively for Shipmates in Good Standing
This policy is guaranteed acceptance, but it does contain a Pre-Existing Conditions Limitation. Please refer to the below description for more information on exclusions and limitations, such as Pre-Existing Conditions.
To qualify for TRICARE Select, a Hospital must operate within the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is located and be engaged primarily in providing diagnostic and therapeutic facilities for surgical and medical diagnosis, treatment and care of injured or sick persons by or under the supervision of one or more staff physicians or surgeons, and continuously provide 24-hour nursing service by registered graduate nurses. Hospital does not include a nursing or convalescent home, a place for drug addiction or alcoholism, or a place for rest, custodial care, or care of the aged. Confined or confinement means being an Inpatient in a hospital due to Sickness or Injury.
During the first two years of coverage (one year if choosing the Select Plan), losses incurred for Pre-Existing Conditions are not covered (unless you are treatment free for 12 months from the effective date). A Pre-Existing Condition means any injury or sickness including pregnancy; diagnosed or undiagnosed, for which you have received medical care within the 12-month period prior to your coverage effective date or the date of an increase in coverage. During that time, benefits for all other accidents or illnesses will be paid under the policy provisions. You are urged to consider this limitation before dropping any coverage you may have until the waiting period is over. If your dependents are currently insured under the Active Duty Supplement with FRA and you join the MilicarePLUS Retired Plan within 63 days of your discharge from active duty, we will credit you with continuity of coverage from your dependents' prior effective date.
The Policy does not cover: injury or sickness resulting from war or act of war, whether war is declared or undeclared; intentionally self-inflicted injury; suicide or attempted suicide, whether sane or insane (in Missouri, while sane); routine physical exams and immunizations, except when: a) rendered to a child up to 6 years from his or her birth; or b) ordered by a Uniformed Service: (1) for a Covered Spouse or Child of an Active Duty Member; (2) for such spouse or child's travel out of the United States due to the Member's assignment; domiciliary or custodial care; eye refractions and routine eye exams except when rendered to a child up to 6 years from his or her birth; eyeglasses and contact lenses; prosthetic devices, except those covered by TRICARE; cosmetic procedures, except those resulting from a covered Sickness or Injury; hearing aids; orthopedic footwear; care for the mentally incapacitated or physically handicapped if: a) the care is required because of the mental incapacitation or physical handicap; or b) the care is received by an Active Duty Member's child who is covered by the Program for the Handicapped under TRICARE; drugs which do not require a prescription, except insulin; dental care unless such care is covered by TRICARE, and then only to the extent that TRICARE covers such care; any confinement, service, or supply that is not covered under TRICARE; Hospital nursery charges for a well newborn, except as specifically provided under TRICARE; any routine newborn care except Well Baby Care, as defined, for a child up to 6 years from his or her birth; expenses in excess of the TRICARE Cap; expenses which are paid in full by TRICARE; any expenses or portion thereof which is in excess of the Legal Limit; any expense or portion thereof applied to the TRICARE Outpatient Deductible, except as otherwise provided under the High Deductible plans; treatment for the prevention or cure of alcoholism or drug addiction except as specifically provided under TRICARE and this policy; and any part of a covered expense which the Covered Person is not legally obligated to pay because of payment by a TRICARE alternative program.
Your coverage will never terminate because of medical history as long as the Master Policy remains in force, you keep paying your premium, you remain an FRA member, you remain ineligible for Medicare, or you reach age 65 (please refer to your Certificate of Insurance for details regarding Medicare eligibility). Dependents' coverage ceases when your coverage terminates; premiums are not paid; or they cease to be eligible dependents.
