The ECHO Effect

Tricare rolls out something new on Sept. 1. It will offer additional financial help and more in-home care for active duty family members with certain disabilities. It is called the Extended Care Health Option. ECHO is designed to provide assistance beyond what is found in Tricare Prime, Standard, or Extra. If your dependents currently receive care through the Program for Persons with Disabilities, you are not qualified for ECHO. Read the details here.
