How to Protect Your Health and Wealth with TRICARE Around the World
TRICARE not only helps take care of your health, but it also protects your wealth. Travel is a way of life for many military and veteran families. If we’ve learned anything in the military is that anytime you travel, Murphy’s Law, something is going to go wrong. Unfortunately, many times that can be your health.
Figuring out TRICARE when you’re on the move and sick or hurt is not fun. Learning about your benefits before you travel can keep your body and wallet healthy.
In this episode, John Letaw is going to break down how to use your TRICARE benefits when you travel, common misperceptions, and how to get the most out of your benefits.
