The post said the Defense Health agency is “taking this step because an increasing number of beneficiaries are turning to their laptops or cellphones when they have questions.”

Beneficiaries are being referred to online resources and a call center for help.

“Beginning April 1, for personal assistance Tricare beneficiaries must call UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans at (877) 988-9378 for enrollment and benefit assistance,” Fort Carson said.
