The Kaiser Permanente TRICARE Prime® option will not be offered to TRICARE beneficiaries in 2023. If you’re currently a Kaiser Permanente TRICARE Prime option member, this means you’ll need to make a change during TRICARE Open Season.
We realize this change will have a significant effect on you and family members who receive their care from Permanente physicians. Rest assured we’ll continue to provide the high-quality care and experiences you’ve come to expect from your care team through the end of this year and beyond, if a medical condition requires a longer transition time. We’ll also do everything possible so the transition of care is easy and seamless.
Contact the Kaiser Permanente TRICARE Service Team at
Mon-Fri, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
if you have any questions or concerns about transitioning your care.
Here’s some important information to keep in mind if you’re currently a Kaiser Permanente member
- Follow Humana Military’s instructions
Follow the instructions you received from Humana Military about changing your PCM to a new TRICARE network provider or enrolling in TRICARE Select during TRICARE Open Season. Open Season is November 14 to December 13, 2022. Contact Humana Military at 1-877-414-9950 for more information.
- Schedule your Kaiser Permanente appointments
Schedule any needed appointments with your Kaiser Permanente health care team as soon as possible so your appointments can be completed before the end of the year.
- Refill your prescriptions
Order any needed Kaiser Permanente prescription refills before December 31, 2022, to ensure you have an adequate supply to carry you through this transition. You can easily submit a refill request on kp.org/rxrefill or call the Refill Pharmacy at 770-434-2008. If you’re out of refills, email your provider to request a refill.
- Save your medical information
Download any information you want to save from your kp.org account—such as test results, immunizations, or after visit summaries—before December 31, 2022. After that date, you’ll have limited read-only access to your information until March 1, 2023.
- Earn and activate your Wellness Rewards health payment card
Complete the steps to earn your Wellness Rewards health payment card, up to $400.00 per household. You can use any reward you earn in 2022, or any reward you previously earned but haven’t used, until December 31, 2023. Go to kp.org/tricare/rewards for details.
- Respond if we reach out
If you’re in a chronic conditions program, in treatment for cancer or another serious condition, or pregnant, we’ll be contacting you to help you with this transition. Be sure to respond when we reach out.
- Join us for special events
Register for any or all of the special events we’re offering just for the military community in October and November at kp.org/TRICARE/Events.
Transferring Your Medical Records
Your new doctor can contact Kaiser Permanente directly by phone or FAX to request your medical record, if needed. We will provide your medical record to your new doctor at no cost.
Transferring Your Prescriptions
If your current prescription was filled in a pharmacy located in a Kaiser Permanente medical facility, you will need to have your prescription transferred to a retail pharmacy that participates in the TRICARE pharmacy network. Your new pharmacy can contact Kaiser Permanente directly by calling the phone number on your medication bottle, and we will transfer the prescription.
Contact the Kaiser Permanente TRICARE Service Team at 833-642-5973 if you have any questions or concerns about transitioning your care.
If you’re turning 65 in 2023, you might want to consider our Kaiser Permanente Senior Advantage Liberty (HMO) plan, designed especially for Medicare-eligible veterans. Give us a call at 1-855-817-5831 (TTY 711), 7 days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for more information.
