tricare/ open enrollment in reserves

I came off active duty to reserves and never enrolled for insurance (big mistake), well I just found out I have pectus excavatum (sunken chest). According to tricare it would be covered due to it causing me heart and lung problems. Problem is it is a no go in terms of staying in the military so I'm wondering if I would have time to get tricare so they can cover the surgery.

call tricare, I believe you can enroll anytme, but there will be a 30 day wait period and you will pay out of pocket for coverage, tricare reserves is like standard so you will also have some out of pocket costs.

Thanks ladies :) I don't mind waiting or paying some out of pocket costs so that's ok

When you sign up your coverage should start on the first of the next month.
