Army National Guard: State Active Duty

Benefit Fact Sheet



TRICARE Extra is an option that allows TRICARE Standard beneficiaries to save money by making civilian doctors' appointments with doctors (nurse practitioners, labs, clinics, etc.) who are "participating" providers.


Army National Guard Soldiers on state active duty are generally not eligible for TRICARE Extra. Extra can be used by any TRICARE eligible beneficiary, who is not active duty, not otherwise enrolled in Prime, and not eligible for TRICARE for Life (TFL).
