Kind Of Tricky Insurance Question

beccaisamommy - February 22

My fiancee works in a juvenile detention facility and applied for insurance. He applied online and that always seems to mess things up. Anyway, the only option that they gave him was tri-care. I believe its called tri care supplemental or something like that but that is only for people who have been in the military. the only thing we can assume is because he is a junior and his father was in the military for years, it is showing up wrong. he doesnt pay for this insurance as there is no monthly charge and they are refusing to put him on regular insurance and telling him he has to wait for the next enrollment period. So my questions is this: can myself or even the baby go under this insurance. can this insurance be used and what does it cover? I am pregnant now and will this insurance pay for any of the medical costs? What do all you army wives do with that insurance? Things are getting rough with my insurance not paying alot so anything would help......

Usually you have to be married to be covered under your spouse's insurance. Once the baby is born, he can be added. Usually open enrollment is in the fall. You should call his HR person and they should provide you with the answers you need. I never let my hubby take care of anything like this. He never asked enough questions and makes a__sumptions that are wrong. You might as well start taking care of this stuff yourself. It will make married life much easier ;)

Tricare is for active duty, retired military and their dependants. You dh is old enough to not be a dependant. I do believe that that is an error and once you file a claim, they will realize their error and it will be denied and you will be stuck with the bill... Never allpy for insurance on line - always go in person or call and speak to a live person. Or you will find yourself in a bad place...

And since you are not married - you would not be covered

My bad.. I was thining about Tricare Prime. Prime is available to active duty, dependants, blah, blah blah.... Standard? Not sure... And don't know. I do know that only AFTER the baby is born, can he add him to his insurance as long as you are not married... Sorry about that - wasn't thinking clearly this morning...
