TRICARE’s Beneficiary Web Enrollment Portal Just Got Easier to Use By: TRICARE
Falls Church, Va., March 31, 2015 - Eligible TRICARE beneficiaries currently can use BWE to update their personal information and manage enrollments in TRICARE plans including USFHP, TYA, and TRICARE dental plans. Recently, the Beneficiary Web Enrollment (BWE) website underwent several exciting changes to make the site more user friendly. Among the new BWE enhancements are 24/7 availability, greater security, and expanded user features to make managing benefit information easier.
In the past year, BWE was upgraded to ensure full functionality with multiple browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Safari) and added enrollment options for TRICARE Young Adult (TYA). Beneficiaries looking to select a primary care manager (PCM) will now find physicians assistants and nurse practitioners listed under the available PCM options. Another site enhancement includes easier instructions on the portal. The wording on all instructions and alert notices is now more clear and concise, making the web site easier to navigate.
For families managing their TRICARE options through BWE, the portal is now easier to use when selecting a PCM for your family. Now, multiple children can be enrolled to the same PCM at one time, instead of having to make the selection individually. Additionally, active duty service members can now use BWE to request changes to or select a PCM.
The following features are available to beneficiaries using BWE, but are currently only available in the continental U.S.
- Update information in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System
- Select or make changes to assigned PCM
- View current enrollment status
- Request enrollment cards
- Transfer coverage
- Disenroll from TRICARE Prime or TRICARE Prime Remote
- Report other health insurance information
BWE is a great tool for eligible beneficiaries looking to make changes to their TRICARE benefits at their convenience. Visit TRICARE online to learn more about BWE's new features, or log on today to get started.
