I recently separatd from my spouse. We were married only 4 months ago (no bills or anything together). Our divorce will be final in 60-days. I added spouse as a family member to my Tricare (I already had th Tricare family to due my child). My spouse has other health insurance tha is billed first. My spouse is going to his primary care doctor he chose though Tricare (still being billed by his insurance first, BUT still presenting the depndent ID card AND uing it for free meds at the local military pharmacy). I asked for the dependent ID card. My spouse said they'd return it, but continues to hid out and not return the ID. Is there anything I can do to get the ID card back? Can I disroll my spouse from Tricare? I am Tricare Prime. I was also told that I could reduce their Tricare to Standard. Please help.

Just Google "Tricare disenroll spouse" and you'll find the form to fill out.

You would probably get more responses on the Military Forum. I've been on TFL for over a de cade and wouldn't venture a guess.

If you are going to be divorced that quickly, you might want to leave his coverage in place until the divorce is final. Since you posted this in the retirement forum, I am thinking you are both older. If something happened to him now, you could be financially responsible because you are married.

Get some good advice!

Thanks everyone...

You are correct... I found that I could be financially responsible, but Tricare switched him from Tricare Prime down the Tricare Standard. That was all they could do until I get the divorce decree. Yes, both in our early 40's. It's unfortunate, but I couldn't accept an no longer take the emotional abuse and financial irresponsibilities...
