Cathy Johnson, what questions do you have about Military retired? We have been retired for 6 years now. Ryan is still on tricare prime. we live close to a large military hospital so we are still impaneled to them. We do see specialist at Seattle children, including a MDA clinic, we have had referrals for that so have not had to pay. You won't have EFMP so if there is anything new, like a new wheelchair you might want to get it prior to retirement. Otherwise you will have to pay a deductible and cost share on new equipment.
Any of you out there retired? I'm trying to navigate Tricare/Navy benefits for dependents of retirees vs. active duty.
If there are any families from southern CA who would like to attend the conference, but can't, please call me or send me a message. As the Parent Outreach Coordinator for Duchenne San Diego (DSD), my goal is to identify as many DMD families in need of connecting in our area as possible, and then make it happen! We are sponsoring families to attend the conference at no cost, because we believe the conference is THAT valuable. This will be my 7th conference and I have truly benefitted each and every time I come.
If you are not from SoCal, please spread the word to any families you know who are. We are going to have to finalize reservations/arrangements very soon.
My phone number is 619.446.8617.
Hi Cathy, my name is Cori and my husband is an Active Duty Officer in the Navy and we have a 6 year old son with Duchenne. If your husband did his 20 years and was not force retired, etc then he, you, and any dependants, (under the age of 23) are still eligible. It works the same as regular Tricare did while you were doing your stations. Military hospitals, referral system, prescription coverage, etc...please call them immediately if you are not taking advantage of this program, it is a wonderful one and is only $700ish a year for entire family.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask, and good luck! Cori
