What is the Tricare Young Adult program?
How do I buy Trucare Young Adult coverage?
You may buy coverage at any time by submitting a completed Tricare Young Adult Application with an initial three-month premium payment to your regional (stateside/overseas) contractor.
After the initial payment, you must make ongoing monthly premium payments by electronic funds transfer or recurring debit/credit card payments. See our Tricare Young Adult Program page for more information.

Yes, but you'll have to wait 12 months before buying it again.
My sponsor isn't eligible for Tricare anymore. Can I buy Tricare Young Adult coverage?
