What is the plan?

The US Family Health Plan (USFHP or the Plan) is a managed care program developed by the Department of Defense.  As designated TRICARE Prime providers under a DoD contract, the Plan offers comprehensive health care benefits to members of the seven uniformed services, including active-duty family members, retirees and their family members, and survivors.

Some years before TRICARE was developed, DoD awarded the US Family Health Plan contracts to the Uniformed Services Treatment Facilities (see “Our History”) located in Baltimore, MD; Portland, ME; Boston, MA; Staten Island, NY; Houston, TX; and, Seattle, WA.
