DOD/DODOASHA RIN: 0720-AB84 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Enrollment Fee and Cost Sharing Under TRICARE Prime and Select for Retirees and Their Dependents 

The Department of Defense is finalizing a rule implementing section 702 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020. The statute mandates retirees and their dependents pay TRICARE premiums via allotment from military retired/retainer pay where feasible instead of credit card or electronic funds transfer (EFT) applicable to health care coverage beginning on or after January 1, 2021. In conforming the regulation to the mandatory statutory changes, this final rule improves TRICARE by reflecting the simplification and automation of premium fee collection.
