Q.I am a TRICARE Reserve Select member. Will my newborn baby be covered under TRICARE Reserve Select?

A. Your newborn baby will be covered only if you register your baby in Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System and a new TRICARE Reserve Select Request Form is received or postmarked within 60 days from the date of birth. New TRICARE Reserve Select Request Forms can be submitted to your regional contractor , address is on the form. If the TRICARE Reserve Select Request Form isn’t received or postmarked within 60 days from the date of birth, all claims will be denied, and you will be responsible for all of your baby’s health care costs.

Note: If you currently have member-only coverage you must include your increased member-and-family premium payment with the new TRICARE Reserve Select Request Form.

If you live in the United States:
The TRICARE regional contractors are responsible for administering the TRICARE Reserve Select benefit and providing TRICARE Reserve Select customer service support for TRICARE Reserve Select members. See the regional contractors’ contact information below.

To find out what region you are in, please visit the TRICARE Regions Web page.

If you live outside the United States:
TRICARE Reserve Select Members who reside overseas may have difficulty in getting documentation required to register a newborn in DEERS. You may submit a request for reconsideration to your TRICARE Regional Director or the TRICARE Area Office Director.
