Tricare uses your military ID card as proof of insurance and does not issue insurance cards.
However, when you enroll in a Tricare health plan, you can download a wallet card that you can take to your appointments to show that you're enrolled. On the card, you can write in your provider's name and phone number as a reference.
- The wallet card is not proof of eligibility.
- You must present your uniformed services ID card as proof of coverage.
You have two options for downloading a wallet card:
- Log in to the Beneficiary Web Enrollment website—click on the "request enrollment card" icon
- If you signed up for eCorrespondence through MilConnect, log in to MilConnect and request a new card
