Does Medicare Pay Funeral Expenses
How Does Medicare and Tricare Work Together?
If you or your spouse are retired from the military and under 65, you and your family are eligible for TRICARE. Once you or your spouse reaches the age of 65, you are eligible for Medicare and Tricare for Life.
If you receive TRICARE for Life, you must also enroll in Medicare Parts A and B. Once you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, you are eligible to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan to receive all the additional benefits that are available to you based on where you live. that TRICARE for Life covers that Medicare does not cover.
How Does This Help Me?
When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, your TRICARE for Life will coordinate benefits with your plan. Medicare will pay first for Medicare-covered services and TRICARE for Life will pay your Medicare deductible and coinsurance amounts as well as any service that TRICARE for Life covers that Medicare does not cover.
