In the past several years, Tricare beneficiaries have seen significant increases to their health programs. But the 2020 budget proposal contains no additional health care fee increases for users of Tricare Prime, Tricare Select and Tricare for Life, meaning that if the budget passes as written and Congress does not include additional fees, beneficiaries can expect their health care costs to be stable next year. Tricare cost shares are adjusted slightly each year, but do not require congressional approval. In addition, fees for premium-based plans may change slightly year to year, as can the enrollment fees for retirees on Tricare Prime. Read about the budget proposal on Military.com.
