  • Medicare and Tricare for Life

    My husband currently is on Medicare as primary and secondary through my employer. If we did not have my secondary insurance through my work, how much would Tricare for Life ( 22 yrs active duty/ retired) cover as secondary? I am working on the assumption that Medicare pays 80%. I keep hearing that Tricare and Medicare come from the same bucket in the budgets. Thanks!

    Did you receive any information? I am Medicare with TFL also. Just slid down to 3b, so am wondering re coverage also. I do see my PCP on Monday, list of questions in hand.

      I have Medicare and TFL also and I search on the internet if a medical facility/office/physician will accept Medicare. If they accept Medicare, they are obligated to accept TFL also. However, I was diagnosed as having hypertension while in the military and as such the local Veteran's Hospital will provide dialysis treatment should the need arise.
