USBA TRICARE Select Supplement Plan


If you’re an eligible TRICARE beneficiary, we invite you to compare our TRICARE Select Supplemental insurance plan to other providers. USBA understands how confusing the health care choices are today for military families and retirees. We also understand how important choosing the right health care supplement is … because your family will still have medical expenses even after TRICARE pays. And even though your costs may be small, in many cases they can be huge.

So why choose USBA’s TRICARE Select Supplement Plan?

  • Guaranteed Acceptance (subject to pre-existing condition limitation*)
  • 30-Day Right to Examine
  • Your Choice of 2 Specially-designed Plans to Custom Fit Your Needs
  • Competitively Priced
  • Retirees and Spouses Get the Same Rates
  • Smokers Pay the Same Price As Non-smokers

Attention “Gray Area Reservists and Survivors”: If you are enrolled in the TRICARE Retired Reserve (TRR) health plan, you are eligible to enroll in our TRICARE Select High Option II Supplement Plan.

Before you begin the application process, be sure to review the USBA TRICARE Select Supplement Plan Features, Benefits Summary, FAQs and Rates.

TRICARE Select Supplemental Plan Rate Chart

Premiums shown are PER PERSON - Premiums increase based on your effective date of coverage and as you move from one age bracket to another. The insurance company reserves the right to change benefits or premiums on a group wide basis. Rates and/or benefits may be changed on a class basis. Rates are based on the attained age of the Insured Person and increase as you enter each new age category.

Your Payment Options:
You have the option of paying your premiums once a year (annually), twice a year (semi-annually), four times a year (quarterly), or monthly. If you pay your premiums monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually, the total premiums you pay in a year may be higher than if you make one annual payment. If you are interested in learning more about these payment options, please refer to your fulfillment package for details.

*Change of Policy Premium: We have the right on each Premium Due Date to change the rate at which premiums will be calculated. This includes the right to change premium rates for a benefit that applies to all individuals of the same class, age, plan, and effective date. Rates may be changed based on claims experienced on the Policy. We will give the Policyholder or Organization notice of any change at least 45 days before the Premium Due Date on which it is to become effective.

**Age of Retiree, Spouse, Widow/er, Former Spouse

***Newborn children not named in your enrollment form are automatically covered from birth for injury or sickness, including treatment of congenital defects and birth abnormalities, for 31 days. You must notify the Plan Administrator in writing and pay the additional premium due within 31 days of birth for coverage to continue beyond this period. Insured children who are incapable of self-sustaining employment because of mental retardation or physical disability and who are unmarried and chiefly dependent on the insured member for support and maintenance may continue coverage past policy age limits, with requested proof. Otherwise, each dependent child’s insurance terminates on the premium due date following the date he or she is no longer a dependent.
