Q. I am a TRICARE for Life beneficiary; what do I have to do with the transition to United Healthcare?

A. During the transition to United Healthcare Military and Veterans, Welcome Packets were sent to all TRICARE beneficiaries in the TRICARE West Region. Included in that mailing were TRICARE for Life beneficiaries. These packets were sent to TFL beneficiaries as an announcement of a change in TRICARE in the West Region and requires no action. TFL beneficiaries will continue to be serviced by Wisconsin Physician Services. Should you have any questions, you can contact a WPS representative at 1-866-773-0404 or on their web site at www.tricare4u.com.
