TRICARE Retired Reserve (TRR)
TRICARE Retired Reserve (TRR) is a premium-based, health plan available worldwide for purchase by qualified Retired Reserve members and their eligible Family members. TRR delivers the TRICARE Select benefit to all covered individuals. This population of Guard and Reserve retirees is commonly referred to as "Gray-Area Retirees." Due to tax law changes, effective January 1, 2019, you will no longer be required to have minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Each January you will still get an IRS Form 1095 from your pay center listing the coverage you had during the previous tax year.
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 2020. 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. According to the IRS, these forms are not required to prepare or file income tax returns but will be available via myPay no later than 31 January 2021.
WASHINGTON, July 23, 2021 - The Department of Veterans Affairs is offering a new COVID-19 Refund Modification option to assist Veterans who require a significant reduction in their monthly mortgage payments because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Falls Church, VA, July 23, 2021 - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has directed Philips Respironics to recall millions of sleep and respiratory devices following concerns that foam in the devices, which is used to reduce sound and vibration, may break into particles and enter the air hose of the device and be inhaled by the user. In response, the Military Health System (MHS) has notified all TRICARE-authorized durable medical equipment providers of the recall. And it’s asking prescribing physicians to help notify patients of the recall and determine if they were issued a medical device on the Philips recall list.
