TRICARE for Life is the health insurance program for military retirees who have served honorably for at least 20 years. They must be enrolled in Part B to receive the benefits. It pays secondary to Medicare and covers out-of-pocket costs including deductibles and coinsurance. People who qualify can receive free or low-cost medications from military treatment facilities, TRICARE network and out-of-network pharmacies, and the National Mail Order Pharmacy.
