MEDIPLUS® coverage is designed to be flexible, allowing you to choose the coverage that's best for you and your family. Whether you choose the TRICARE Select In- and Outpatient Plan, Inpatient Only Plan or TRICARE Prime Plan, Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) members can count on valuable protection.
MEDIPLUS works hand-in-hand with your TRICARE coverage to help pay more of your covered medical bills and gives you protection for everything from Hospital stays to doctor visits and prescription drugs.
To learn more about how this plan works to supplement your current TRICARE plan, including costs, exclusions, limitations and terms of coverage, go to the Rates and Additional Plan Details sections below.
MOAA sponsors the MEDIPLUS® TRICARE Supplement Insurance Plan to help reduce your unexpected out-of-pocket expenses. The MEDIPLUS TRICARE Supplement helps cover cost-shares not fully reimbursed by TRICARE for covered doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, prescription drug cost-shares and covered excess charges (up to 15% above the TRICARE allowed amount), once any applicable TRICARE and MEDIPLUS deductibles have been met.
The MEDIPLUS TRICARE Supplement has you covered:
As a Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) member, you are eligible for group rates as shown.

Additional Plan Details
This supplement is only for Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) members and their families and, as a result, you and your family are guaranteed acceptance. This means your acceptance into this plan is guaranteed, however, insurance benefits payable are subject to the policy’s Pre-Existing Conditions Limitation. Just complete and sign the enrollment form.
Your MEDIPLUS® protection will start on the first day of the month after we receive your completed enrollment form and first premium payment. You'll have protection for new health conditions right away and current health conditions are covered after six months.
Plus, the waiting period for current health conditions can be waived if you're losing your civilian employer plan or leaving active duty. In some cases it can also be waived for active duty family members.
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 Select Supplement will be paid directly to the provider(s). Under TRICARE Prime most network providers require the patient’s $21 co-pay at the time of the office visit, so the MEDIPLUS TRICARE Prime Supplement reimbursement of those Prime outpatient co-pays will be sent directly to the member. Only the Prime $21 co-pay for office visits will be reimbursed to the member. All other Prime co-pays will be reimbursed to the provider.
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.
Current health conditions will be covered right away, as long as you've had continuous MEDIPLUS coverage for six months and you discontinue TRICARE Prime during the TRICARE open enrollment period or you move to an area where TRICARE Prime is unavailable.
If you discontinue TRICARE Prime on a date other than the TRICARE open enrollment period, current health conditions will not be covered under your MEDIPLUS TRICARE Select Supplement for the first six months.
Even if you decide not to enroll yourself in MEDIPLUS, your spouse and children are still guaranteed acceptance. This means your acceptance into this plan is guaranteed, however, insurance benefits payable are subject to the policy’s Pre-Existing Conditions Limitation.
Make sure any TRICARE Supplement you use has this important benefit. If your TRICARE-authorized doctor charges you more than what TRICARE allows, MEDIPLUS picks up the bills for you to cover up to 15% above the TRICARE-allowed amount. MEDIPLUS will help cover these excess charges as long as the TRICARE and MEDIPLUS deductibles are met.
MEDIPLUS can be ideal for the whole family - yourself, your spouse and your kids, even if they're at college. It provides coverage at affordable group rates. And, MEDIPLUS can be used at most student health service centers where TRICARE is accepted. But that's not all.
MEDIPLUS can be there for your family, even if something happens to you. As a retired member, if you die, your eligible spouse's MEDIPLUS TRICARE Select Supplement coverage will continue at no cost until he or she remarries, reaches age 65 or becomes Medicare-eligible. Spouses of active duty members will be covered for up to ten years or until they remarry, reach age 65 or qualify for Medicare.
Children can continue their MEDIPLUS protection premium-free for ten full years, or until they marry or reach age 21 (23 if a full-time student or 26 if enrolled in TRICARE Young Adult). Your family automatically qualifies for this additional benefit as long as you, your spouse and children are continuously covered by MEDIPLUS for at least six months before you die. (The Waiver of Premium Benefit is not available under the MEDIPLUS TRICARE Prime supplement.)
When you say "YES" to MEDIPLUS, you can rest assured your protection can stay with you wherever you go. Even if you change jobs or move, you can keep your MEDIPLUS protection. (Unlike employer-provided plans that end when you leave your job.)

Members who are on Active Duty are not eligible for coverage but they may enroll their eligible dependents who are covered by TRICARE Select.
As a TRICARE-covered member of MOAA under age 65, and not yet eligible for Medicare you and your family are eligible for coverage.

Your dependent’s coverage will remain in effect as long as your coverage is active, premiums are paid, and they meet eligibility requirements.
