A person's dental or health plan may determine the payment options that they have, according to Tricare. For the Tricare Prime Health Plan, members make payments by allotment, electronic funds transfer, debit, credit card, phone and online. The member may also receive a bill in the mail and return it every month or quarter to a regional contractor with debit or credit card information on the bill.
For Tricare Reserve Select, Tricare Retired Reserve and Tricare Young Adult, members have to pay their first premium payment by automatic payment, as Tricare explains. For other payments, the member can pay online by signing in to a regional contractor's website to pay the monthly premiums. Members who live overseas must set up an electronic funds transfer or make automatic payments using their credit or debit cards.
For the US Family Health Plan, members must enroll and pay the fees to specific designated providers, states Tricare. They may be able to pay online with some providers.
