Hi ladies, I have a question for you. My fiance is in the Army, and we are getting married next month. I have a daughter from a previous relationship. My question is, will my daughter be able to get health insurance through the military since I will be a military spouse and she is my dependant? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Yes, my son is not my husband's biological child...but he treats him as such, and he gets medical benefits, listed under "stepchild"

You will sign up for medical at the Tricare office after you register for DEERS (It's a long day of paperwork, make sure you have ID, marriage license,and your ss card and birth cert for both you and dd) and then you will have to figure out what dental coverage is in your area, and your dh will have to sign up for it for you both...it's separate from Tricare. It's an extra $30-40 a month for you and a child  (I would assume, that's what it is for us.) Ours covers 2 cleanings per year and 60% of cost. Tricare prime covers almost all costs if you go on post. To see an off post dr you have to get a referral. If you live more than 100 miles from a post, they will enroll you in basic tricare (named by area last I knew...Tri-west, etc) and I don't remember how muchthat covers, it's been a while, I know I paid $60 for a basic dr visit for my son. Hope this helps.

yes, step children are allowed to be added, as long as they are currently not under another AD member.

If they are under their AD biological parent they would still be covered.

that was not the question- the question was can step children be added to tricare, the answer is yes, but if they are covered under another AD member they cannot be added without the other AD member removes them. a person call not be under 2 different members.

They can be added in DEERS under two different members but listed as receiving entitlements under another sponsor.
