TRICARE beneficiaries can access a number of mobile applications, better known as apps, designed to run on a mobile device such as a phone, tablet, or watch.


The Defense Health Agency (DHA) and TRICARE and their regional contract partners have developed apps for servicemembers and retirees and their beneficiaries. Every app provided by DHA, TRICARE, or contract partners is free and available for iPhones and Android mobile devices, with a few exceptions.


To access the apps, visit TRICARE’s app resource webpage. Here are apps available:

  • Humana Military (TRICARE East): Allows beneficiaries to make payments, check eligibility, and find a provider.
  • Express Scripts: Manage and track prescriptions, find a network pharmacy, get drug information, and more.
