July 2016 Webinar Announcement

Join the OneOp – Military Caregiving concentration on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern as we host our FREE online professional development webinar, TRICARE® Extended Care Health Option (ECHO).

The webinar is part of a continual professional development opportunity to provide basic TRICARE® educational information for military service providers and families. The TRICARE® ECHO training will be geared to military helping professionals that work with exceptional families or individuals with special needs. Richard Hart, presenter and Senior Health Policy Analyst for the Defense Health Agency (DHA), will discuss a variety of ECHO services and resources offered beyond the basic TRICARE health benefits program. He will also be accompanied by two co-presenters: Theresa Hart, Nurse Consultant of Pediatrics and Special Medical Programs, and Dori Rogut, Senior Policy Analyst for Behavioral Health Benefits and Standards; both from DHA.

To prepare for next month’s webinar, view our recent training on An Introduction to TRICARE® for an overview of TRICARE® benefits for service members and their families. The training included details about eligibility, program options, priority access to military hospitals and clinics, the TRICARE® Pharmacy Program, how Medicare affects TRICARE ® and the Affordable Care Act.
