DOD/DODOASHA RIN: 0720-AB30 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: TRICARE; Continued Health Care Benefit Program Expansion  
Abstract: This rule executes the expansion of section 1078a of title 10, United States Code. With the recent expansions of the Military Health System (MHS) coverage, particularly with the Reserve Component members, some MHS beneficiaries would not be eligible for CHCBP under certain circumstances that terminate their MHS coverage. This provision allows the Secretary to establish CHCBP eligibility for any categories of MHS beneficiaries who otherwise would lose MHS coverage with no continued care eligibility. This rule also includes administrative changes providing clarification on some issues and updates the final rule published in the Federal Register on September 30, 1994 (59 FR 49817).
