How Do I Shop for New Health Insurance Coverage?

USAA Helps Civilian Male Military Spouses take A look at Tricare and the Affordable Care Act

 

OK, here is an important topic USAA wrote about a few months ago and we obtained permission to re-post on Macho Money. 

For those of you who are new to the military, you will receive your health insurance from Tricare.  Tricare is offered to all active duty members and their dependents.  Once your active duty spouse retires, your family is eligible for Tricare For Life.  However, if you guys decide to separate from the military before retirement qualifications are met, you aren't eligible for Tricare. 

At this point the VA may be an option, but there are specific eligibility requirements, so not everyone will qualify...plus the VA doesn't cover dependents.  So, for many of us, the pain of shopping for health insurance is inevitable.
