In order to enroll in any Military or TriCare medical or dental benefit program, your eligibility must be verified by the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). Medical and dental offices will also want a copy of your dependant ID Card.
When your sponsor activated, you should have been automatically enrolled in DEERS. To confirm that you are enrolled, and/or find the ID Card site nearest you, call 1-800-538-9552. You can also visit DEERS website.
There is more information on DEERS enrollment. There is also a link there for the "DEERS website" which will allow sponsors to see the family members listed in DEERS under their SSN, however it will not show details or status.
Your correct enrollment in DEERS is critical to receiving the benefits you rate!
Call 1-800-538-9552 to confirm your family's eligibility status.
