If I am eligible for benefits under CHAMPVA (Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs), am I still eligible for TRICARE?  
Although similar, CHAMPVA is completely separate with a totally different beneficiary population than TRICARE - a Department of Defense healthcare program formerly called CHAMPUS. CHAMPVA is a health care benefits program for the spouse or widow(er) and for the children of a veteran who: is rated permanently and totally disabled due to a service-connected disability by a VA regional office; was rated permanently and totally disabled due to a service-connected condition at the time of death; died of a service-connected disability; died on active duty; and the dependents who are not otherwise eligible for DoD TRICARE benefits. While the benefits are similar, the programs are administered separately with significant differences in claim filing procedures and preauthorization requirements.
