I am trying to help soldier who is rated 70% military disabled and 100% VA permanent disability. He is still active duty but will separate in Sept. When he is out, what medical will he quality for? I assume he will have a transition appointment with VA about their benefits but will he also qualify for Tricare for Life? Will he have to apply for it and will there be a cost? He has been working with VA liason for transition and healthcare at his current post but due to his disability, it is difficult for him to keep track of what he is supposed to do upon separation. We will start with VA and DEERS appointments but not sure about how to apply forTricare. Timing is critical because he has been on monthly IV treatments and must continue with them in September. His SSDI claim is pending.
