Army Reserve: Drilling
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.
Beginning in January 2016, DFAS will provide IRS Form 1095-C to all U.S. military members, and IRS Form 1095-B to all Retirees, Annuitants, former Spouses and all other individuals having TRICARE coverage during all or any portion of tax year 2015. An IRS Form 1095 documents you (and your Family members, if applicable) have the minimum essential coverage. These forms will document the information that DFAS will provide to the IRS on yourself and your authorized Family members. The forms will be required to be reported with your 2015 federal tax return. DFAS will provide you with IRS Form 1095 series forms no later than 31 January 2016.
Army Reserve Soldiers on drill status and their Families are generally not eligible for TRICARE Extra benefits. However, they may be eligible for TRICARE Reserve Select.
