MEDIPLUS® TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement Insurance Plan
Why choose the MEDIPLUS® TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement Insurance Plan?
MOAA sponsors the MEDIPLUS® TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement Insurance Plan to help reduce your unexpected out-of-pocket expenses. The MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement helps cover cost-shares not fully reimbursed by TRICARE for covered doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, prescription drug cost-shares and excess charges (up to 15% above the TRICARE allowed amount), once any applicable TRICARE deductible has been met.
The MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement has you covered:
- Pays cost-shares and co-pays
- Pays excess charges (up to 15% above the TRICARE allowed amount)
- Affordable members-only group rates
- Guaranteed acceptance for eligible MOAA members and their families — you’re covered immediately for all new health conditions. Any current injuries or illnesses are subject to the Pre-Existing Conditions Limitation and are covered after six months.
Affordable Members-Only Monthly Group Rates
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:
(NOTE: 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.
Guaranteed Acceptance for You and Your Family
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 current health conditions, the waiting period is 6 months.

The MEDIPLUS TRICARE Reserve Select Supplement offers you and your family cash benefits for Hospital bills, doctor bills, and prescription drugs. Once you pay the annual TRICARE Reserve Select deductible ($150 per person/$300 family), MEDIPLUS works with TRICARE Reserve Select to help cover your medical expenses.
Pays Covered Excess Charges
If your 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 ($150/per person, $300/family) are met. This is especially valuable because excess charges can’t be applied to TRICARE’s annual catastrophic cap (currently $1,000).
Select Your Own Doctor
With MEDIPLUS, you’re free to choose your own TRICARE–authorized doctor or specialist (with no referral) whenever you like.
Current Health Condition Waiting Period Could Be Waived
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.
Change in Military Status? MEDIPLUS Has Other Options for You
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 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.
DirectClaim: MOAA’s electronic filing process for MEDIPLUS TRICARE Supplement claims
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Your satisfaction is guaranteed with MEDIPLUS. Take 30 days after you receive your Certificate of Insurance to examine the coverage. Pay for it only after you determine it’s the right protection for you. If you’re not completely satisfied with MEDIPLUS after the 30–day free look, return your Certificate to cancel your request for coverage. You’re under no obligation.

Outpatient benefits for such disorders are limited to $500 during any period of 12 consecutive months. In addition, for Mental Illness we will pay up to 150 days of inpatient care for covered expenses for a covered dependent child up to age 21.
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.
