Transitional Care for Service-Related Conditions

Eligibility

If you are eligible for care under TAMP and have a newly-diagnosed medical condition that is related to your active-duty service, you may qualify for an additional 180 days of care for your specified service-related condition. To qualify for TCSRC, your medical condition must be:

  • Service-related
  • Newly discovered/diagnosed during the 180-day TAMP period
  • Able to be resolved within 180 days
  • Validated by a DoD physician

Benefits

If you qualify, you’ll receive medical care for that condition, and that condition only, as if you are still on active duty, with no copayments or cost shares applied.  If you have multiple service-related conditions, each condition will have its own enrollment and coverage period.

TCSRC enrollment includes eligibility for prescriptions necessary to treat the service-related condition(s). You can fill these prescriptions through any of the pharmacy options: military, network, non-network pharmacy, or via home delivery. If you are near a military pharmacy, you may want to get your prescriptions filled there.  If not, home delivery is your next best option.

If you use a network or non-network pharmacy during the TCSRC benefit period, you may experience out-of-pocket cost, but you can file a prescription claim. Be sure to send a copy TCSRC approval letter with your form you will be fully reimbursed for medications related to your TCSRC-authorized condition. TCSRC will not cover the cost of medications unrelated to the treatment of a TCSRC-authorized condition.

Enrollment into this program does not affect your eligibility for any other TRICARE program for you and your family members. (i.e. Deactivated Guard/Reserve members in the Selected Reserve may enroll in TRICARE Reserve Select and use TCSRC benefits for qualified service-related conditions.)
