Fort Carson will host a meeting next week to go over changes to the military's Tricare health insurance benefit.
Tricare has been a target for budget-cutters for years and will see sweeping changes in 2018 as the benefit moves to a more expensive co-pay model for most prescription drugs obtained off-base.
The benefit also shifted thousands of enrollees to Tricare Select, a repackaged benefit that includes an annual out-patient deductible for off-base services.
The Fort Carson meeting is set for 4:30 p.m. Feb. 6 in McMahon auditorium on the post.
"The event is open to all Colorado Springs military health system beneficiaries and will feature a panel of guest speakers, including representatives from Evans and Health Net," Fort Carson said in a news release. "A presentation on TRICARE changes, which went into effect Jan. 1, 2018, will be followed by a question and answer session for beneficiaries to engage with the panel."
