Looks like by the location that I will be moving to as a retired military member my family and I will be qualified for only Tricare Standard or Extra, NO Prime!
So for people like me out there, what experiences have you had with your supplemental insurance and what would you recommended or heard from other military members experiences?
I have heard supplemental companies like USBA,MBA,MOAA and ASI to name a few.
Any help appreciated

You might have a bit more luck and better response if you repost this in the military form. Just a thought!

I was under Tricare Standard for 14 years. Most doctors would not take assignment but would file the claim. Never a problem and we chose our doctors. As for the supplement, I put far more money into it than I ever got out of it but then I never had a major medical issue such as heart by-pass etc. Used MOAA. No complaints. I guess it would have paid off had I needed it. I'd go with high deductible or whatever is available. It is hard to get detailed information from insurance companies until you are sending in the premiums. BTW, Tricare is administered, like Medicare, by contractors. All contractors are not created equal. I'm glad I live in the SE USA. My understanding is the contractor out west that just got the contract is not particularly reliable. Good luck.
