 What if I have a change in status?

When you deactivate, you may purchase TRICARE Reserve Select again with no break in coverage as long as you re-qualify.

• Submit your completed Reserve Component Health Coverage Request Form (DD Form 2896-1) with a premium payment postmarked no later than 60 days after the loss of the TRICARE coverage.
• TRICARE Reserve Select begins on the day after the loss of other TRICARE coverage.
• If you qualify for the Transitional Assistance Management Program (TAMP) when you deactivate, TRICARE Reserve Select begins following the 180-day TAMP period.

Loss of Eligibility
Your coverage automatically ends if you leave the Selected Reserve or lose eligibility for any other reason. 

You may purchase TRICARE Reserve Select again if you re-qualify.
