TRICARE Health Benefits

TRICARE Health Benefits

TRICARE is managed by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) under the policy guidance and direction of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) (ASD[HA]). The DHA manages the TRICARE budget, executes TRICARE policies and oversees the entire TRICARE health program.

As a major component of the Military Health System, the TRICARE health program combines the health care resources at military hospitals and clinics (or direct care) with networks of civilian health care professionals, institutions, pharmacies and suppliers to provide access to high-quality health care services while maintaining the capability to support military operations.

TRICARE partners with UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans as its regional contractor in the Western United States to provide health care services and support to beneficiaries.
