As a result of the 2006 NDAA, TRICARE Reserve Select (TRS) has been made available to most Selected Reservists. The current TRS program is a three tier, premium based coverage system. Changes are coming to the three tier system. As a result of the 2007 NDAA, the three tier system will be eliminated around 1 October 2007. The new TRS program will be based on the former Tier One premium base and will be more affordable to a wider range of Selected Reservists. DOD is in the process now to formulate policy guidance for the new system. Keep monitoring the Association’s website for details as October 2007 approaches.
