TRICARE Open Season

TRICARE Open Season is for TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Select enrollment. During this time each fall, you can change your health care plan for the next year. Learn more at www.tricare.mil/openseason.

  • Open Season is Nov. 11–Dec. 9, 2019 (for the 2020 plan year).

Options During TRICARE Open Season

  • Do nothing. If you want to stay in your current TRICARE health care plan, you don’t have to take any action. You’ll continue in your current health plan through the following calendar year or as long as you’re eligible.
  • Enroll in a plan. If you’re eligible for a TRICARE Prime option or TRICARE Select but not enrolled, you can enroll in a plan.
  • Change plans. If you’re already enrolled in a TRICARE Prime option, or TRICARE Select, you can switch plans and switch between individual and family enrollment.

Did You Miss TRICARE Open Season?

If you miss TRICARE Open Season, you can only make plan changes during the year if you have a qualifying life event (QLE). Learn more about QLEs on our TRICARE Plans page. 

Note: Open season does not apply to TRICARE Reserve Select, TRICARE Retired Reserve, TRICARE Young Adult, and TRICARE For Life.
