Tricare for active-duty orders

Bookmark and Share

Q. I am a federal employee and am going on active-duty orders for more than 30 days, which makes me eligible for Tricare for 180 days before my deployment, during my deployment and 180 days after my deployment. Can I suspend my FEHB during that period or just the time that I am on orders for?

A. Yes. See www.opm.gov/insure/health/eligibility/tricare.asp.
