TRICARE is a health care program for members of the uniformed services and their families, and survivors and retired members and their families. TRICARE brings together the health care resources of each of the military services and supplements them with networks of civilian health care professionals to provide better access and high quality service while maintaining the capability to support military operations. There are 11 TRICARE Regions in the U.S. plus TRICARE Europe, TRICARE Latin America and TRICARE Pacific. Each region has an assigned Lead Agent staff who are responsible for the military health system in that region. TRICARE Pacific is managed administratively by the Region 12 Lead Agent staff.
