How to Pay New Enrollment Fees


Effective Jan. 1, 2021, most military retirees and their family members enrolled in TRICARE Select who are Group A will begin paying enrollment fees. You are considered Group A if you or your sponsor enlisted or was appointed prior to Jan. 1, 2018. Medically retired, their family members and survivors are excluded from this change. This change does not impact TRICARE For Life 

Take action nowHealth.net can now accept monthly automatic payment set-up requests for 2021 enrollment fees. You do not need to wait for TRICARE Open Season to begin. Payments must be made by allotment, when feasible. An allotment allows you to have your TRICARE enrollment fees automatically deducted from your military retirement pay. If you are unable to pay by allotment, you must set up automatic payments via a bank account or credit/debit card. Take action by Nov. 20, 2020 to start automatic payments in January 2021. If you wait until after Nov. 20, you may need to pay fees up front until automatic payments start. TRICARE beneficiaries who do not pay required enrollment fees are subject to disenrollment.     

To set up allotment payments go online or use the telephone self-service option.

Online: Click on Manage My Payment tool.
        Telephone self-service: Call 1-844-866-WEST (9378). After entering your sponsor information, select ‘Enrollment’ and then option 4 for Select allotments.
