WASHINGTON — Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., is urging Defense Secretary Mark Esper to hold off on implementing new Tricare enrollment fees for a year to give military families some economic relief amid the coronavirus pandemic and so they can become informed about the new charges.  

“The [coronavirus] pandemic has had unprecedented impacts on the health and economy of our nation,” Tester, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, wrote Monday in a letter to Esper. “By implementing a 12-month grace period, the [Defense Department] can ensure that all military retirees and their families have adequate time and notice to meet the new Tricare Select requirements and maintain their health care coverage.”
