Eligible drilling members of the National Guard and Reserves qualify for DoD's TRICARE Reserve Select health coverage plan. That means those that are Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) members also qualify for the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement, which includes these valuable benefits:

Tips for Filing a MEDIPLUS® Claim
Thanks to the collective buying power of Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) members, you pay an affordable, members-only group rate. See your monthly rate below:
You're classified as a nonsmoker if you haven't smoked cigarettes, cigars or used a pipe or chewing tobacco, nicotine product or snuff during the 12 months prior to the date you apply for coverage.
For your convenience, you'll be billed quarterly. Rates and/or benefits may be changed on a class-wide basis.
As a member of Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), you are guaranteed acceptance. This means your acceptance into this plan is guaranteed. However, the insurance benefits payable are subject to the Pre–Existing Conditions Limitation.
Your spouse and children (under age 21 or 23 if full–time student or 26 if enrolled in TRICARE Young Adult) are also guaranteed acceptance too. Your Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)–sponsored MEDIPLUS coverage begins the first day of the month after the administrator receives your completed Enrollment Form and your first premium payment. MEDIPLUS covers new health conditions right away. For pre-existing health conditions, the waiting period is 6 months.
The MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement offers you and your family coverage for Hospital bills, doctor bills, and prescription drugs. Once you pay the annual TRICARE Reserve Select deductible, MEDIPLUS works with TRICARE Reserve Select to help cover your medical expenses.
If your TRICARE-authorized doctor charges you more than what TRICARE allows, you’re left to pay the rest of the bill. Not with MEDIPLUS, because it covers up to 15% of covered excess charges above the TRICARE-allowed amount after the TRICARE deductibles are met. This is especially valuable because excess charges can’t be applied to TRICARE’s annual catastrophic cap.
If you enroll in this MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement within 30 days of the date your TRICARE Reserve Select coverage begins, you and your family will qualify for MEDIPLUS without the waiting period for current health conditions.
If you go back to Active Duty: If you are covered by this MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement and then are reactivated to active duty, your family will then qualify for Active Duty TRICARE Select or TRICARE Prime.
If you decide to stay with TRICARE Select, your family may still need a supplement. MEDIPLUS Active Duty Family TRICARE Select Supplement would be available to you. This supplement has similar benefits as the TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement.
If you are Deactivated: If you go back on active duty and purchase TRICARE Reserve Select when you are deactivated, you can switch back to the MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement without any waiting period as long as you let us know within 30 days of the date your TRICARE Reserve Select coverage begins.
Should any of these situations occur, please call the Plan Administrator at 1-800-247-2192 immediately to discuss the best options for you and your family. You must inform the administrator of any changes to your primary TRICARE coverage as you are their only source for that information.
Filing MEDIPLUS claims is fast and easy with DirectClaim, another unique benefit to MEDIPLUS. With DirectClaim, you will not have to complete MEDIPLUS claim paperwork after you access most of your eligible TRICARE benefits. You will be informed when your claim is filed electronically by a message on your MEDIPLUS Explanation of Benefits (EOB) form.
Please be aware that some TRICARE Supplement claims cannot be processed electronically, such as any prescription claims and most Skilled Nursing or Skilled Nursing Facility, nursing home claims and claims filed from overseas. For these, you will need to submit paper claim filings to MEDIPLUS. Claim forms are accessible on this website.
If a claim for service is submitted through DirectClaim and TRICARE has paid the provider(s) directly, any payment due under a MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement will be paid directly to the provider(s).
It's important that the MEDIPLUS applicant’s name appears on the enrollment form the same as it is on their military ID card to ensure proper claims processing.
If you have any questions about DirectClaim, please call the MOAA Insurance Plans Administrator at 1-800-247-2192 or email [email protected]

Important Information Regarding Veterans’ Administration (VA) Hospitals: TRICARE supplement insurance policies pay benefits only after TRICARE has first reviewed and approved the expense. A review by TRICARE results in a TRICARE Explanation of Benefits (“EOB”). Many VA Hospitals currently do not submit their claims through TRICARE. Only claims TRICARE processes, resulting in an EOB, are subject to benefits under Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company’s TRICARE supplement insurance policies. If you use VA facilities for your care, please be aware of this TRICARE supplement policy requirement.
VA Hospitals also can charge the veteran a Category C co-payment based on a means test per Public Law 99 Section 272. This law specifically applies only to the veteran and not the insurance company. Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company is not liable for payment of these charges.
