TRICARE Supplement Plan

The TRICARE Supplement Plan provides secondary coverage to TRICARE. This is the Department of Defense health benefit program for the military community. For eligible employees, it provides an alternative to the State Health Plan. It pays the subscriber’s share of covered medical expenses under:

  • TRICARE Prime (in-network);
  • TRICARE Select.


Eligible participants have almost 100 percent coverage. Selman & Company administers the TRICARE Supplement Plan. The Plan features:

  • No deductibles, coinsurance or out-of-pocket expenses for covered services;
  • Choice of any TRICARE-authorized provider, including network, non-network and participating providers;
  • Reimbursement of prescription drug copayments; and
  • Portability that allows you to continue coverage by paying the premiums to Selman & Company if you leave your job.



PEBA does not confirm eligibility for the TRICARE Supplement Plan. Eligible individuals must register with the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System. They must not be eligible for Medicare. If you are a State Health Plan member, you must drop your coverage to enroll in the TRICARE Supplement Plan.



You must be a member of the Government Employees Association to enroll in the TRICARE Supplement Plan. You can learn more at the Association at To complete your enrollment, you must provide a copy of your military ID or TRICARE ID card. If you were enrolled in the State Health Plan before, you must also complete the TRICARE Other Health Insurance form found at
