Uniformed Services Family Health Plan

The Uniformed Services Family Health Plan, or “USFHP”, is available to persons living in select areas within the United States.

The USFHP is similar to TRICARE Prime in that you will have a primary care provider whom you will select from a list of private doctors affiliated with the designated provider facility, or “DP”. However, you will not normally be able to get authorization from your primary care provider to see outside providers, even to get treatment at a military facility; any care you receive under USFHP must be provided at the DP, or you will be responsible for the full cost of treatment.

The primary advantage to using USFHP is that gives coverage for no out-of-pocket costs and no enrollment free for active-duty family members.  Retirees and their families will be assessed an annual enrollment fee unless they are Medicare Part A eligible, enrolled in TRICARE for Life, and enrolled in Medicare Part B.  Retirees and their families are also responsible for a copayment.

USFHP enrollment is limited to designated zip codes surrounding DP facilities, and may only be available if there is room for new beneficiaries within the facility.  Eligible beneficiaries will also be required to enroll for a minimum of one year.

USFHP Eligibility

USFHP is available to:

  • Active duty family members
  • Retired service members and their families
  • Family members of Activated National Guard/Reserve members
  • Non-activated National Guard/Reserve members and their families who qualify for care under the Transitional Assistance Management Program
  • Retired National Guard/Reserve members at age 60 and their families
  • Survivors
  • Medal of Honor recipients and their families
  • Qualified former spouses
