An upcoming TRICARE webinar will focus on military retirees and family members approaching age 65, addressing questions about Medicare and the TRICARE For Life (TFL) program.
The webinar, hosted by TFL Program Manager Anne Breslin, takes place Sept. 29 from 1-2 p.m. Eastern and requires pre-registration. Space may be limited.
The event will cover:
- How to sign up for Medicare in time to ensure no gaps in health care coverage.
- How to access care using Medicare/TFL.
- What services are covered by Medicare/TFL.
- Choosing a Medicare provider.
- Understanding TFL costs.
A question-and-answer session will be held after the webinar.
