TRICARE Health Services
TRICARE Regions Provide Centralized Service
TRICARE transitioned from 12 regions and 7 contractors stateside to 3 regions and 3 contractors to better meet the health care needs of TRICARE beneficiaries. Each of the three TRICARE regions in the United States has a regional contractor that helps coordinate medical services available through the military treatment facilities and through a network of civilian hospitals and providers.
TRICARE - U.S. Department of Defense Military Health Program
TRICARE is a regionally managed health care program for active duty and retired members of the uniformed services, their Families, and survivors. TRICARE brings together the health care resources of the Army, Navy and Air Force and supplements them with networks of civilian health care professionals to provide better access and high quality service while maintaining the capability to support military operations.
