AMARILLO – The Military Families Learning Network’s Military Caregiving program will host a free 60-minute “TRICARE in 2019: What You Need to Know” webinar Feb. 6 in partnership with the Defense Health Agency.

This and other webinars are offered through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Military Program to provide professional development and interactive resources for those unable to leave home for training, said Andrew Crocker, AgriLife Extension program specialist in gerontology and health, Amarillo.

The one-hour webinar will begin at 10 a.m. and is open to anyone interested, but registration is required. To join the session or for more information, go to https://militaryfamilieslearningnetwork.org/event/29427/.

2019 brings a number of important changes and improvements to the TRICARE benefit as well as the Military Health System, said Rachel Brauner, AgriLife Extension program specialist with the agency’s Texas Military Program in College Station.

The presentation will review important information about enrollment requirements, current and upcoming changes to the benefit, and changes to the military health system, Brauner said.

Capt. Edward Simmer, who currently serves as the chief clinical officer for the TRICARE Health Plan at the Defense Health Agency in Falls Church, Virginia, will be presenting.

The MFLN Military Caregiving concentration will provide certificates of completion for participants interested in receiving training hours and one continuing education credit from the Commission for Case Management Certification.
