The resizing of the Prime Service Areas (PSA) doesn't have anything to do with sequestration or the current budget problems. In the previous generation of TRICARE contracts the healthcare contractors submitting bids pretty much all included 100% Prime coverage in their bids, even though it was not in the contract solicitation. As the next generation of TRICARE contracts have finally expired, 100% Prime coverage is still not in the solicitations, however this time the contractors did not include it at no cost in their proposals. Thus, the TRICARE coverage is returning to the original PSAs, with TRICARE Standard in the non-Prime areas. Any beneficiary who wishes to live outside a PSA should assess their health status and then strongly consider a good TRICARE Supplemental policy.
