Capt. Kathryn Beasley, USN (Ret.), Director of health affairs at the Military Officers Association of America, discusses what military beneficiaries need to know about the new plans available to them, and changes made to the existing process.


The military’s TRICARE system is having its first Open Season, and with that comes changes to the enrollment process. Capt. Kathryn Beasley, USN (Ret.), Director of health affairs at the Military Officers Association of America, says that active and retired military personnel need to be aware of major modifications to dental and vision plans.   “There’s a new vision plan in there, and this is something that military beneficiaries, retirees and active duty family members, have never had. So optometry features… are new this year,” Beasley said. “Open season is an opportunity, a time for people to evaluate their health plans as well. Whether they want to stay in the current plan that they’re in or whether they’d like to change. They can make those decisions. Once that open season is done… then you stay with that plan for the next year, unless you have what we call a qualifying life event. A marriage, a birth, a change in status, a retirement; anything that would necessitate a change in the DEER system.”
