    Hello, all!

    I have a question about medical benefits for my 10 month old. His dad is a marine, but he's getting admin sep'd and my son will no longer have medical benefits and I don't have any medical benefits lined up for him yet. Would my coastie be able to give my son medical?

    Thanks!

    If your son is officially his dependent, then I think he can...but hopefully someone else can answer your question better than me.

    Well, from what a friend told me who is in a similar situation, her son's biological father gave up parental rights and her son was able to have her new husbands medical benefits. But, I'm not sure that's the only way. I'm hoping someone can give me a definite answer. This is really weighing heavy on my mind. My son's father could be separated from the Marine Corps any day now and he doesn't have anything lined up for when he's out so that my son would have medical insurance.

    This is from the TRICARE Website: "Stepchildren
    Stepchildren do not have to be adopted for them to be covered by TRICARE. As long as the sponsor and the parent of the stepchildren are married, the stepchildren are covered by TRICARE. If the marriage ends in divorce, the stepchildren lose eligibility on the date the divorce decree is final.

    If the sponsor adopts his or her stepchildren, and the marriage ends in divorce, the adopted stepchildren remain eligible TRICARE up to age 21 (or 23rd if in college, see "College Students" below) even if the sponsor gets divorced or remarried."

    http://www.tricare.mil/mybenefit/Pr...IsEligible

    I would contact TRICARE and speak to a Rep to hammer out all the details. Good Luck!
