I've been reviewing the benefits guide prior to my indoc class.

Does anyone have advice, do's and/or don'ts? I have access to Tricare Reserve Select/Tricare Dental, which is probably what I'll use over the BCBS.

Definitely TRS medical. I do use AA for vision and dental though, I think they’re marginally better, though I haven’t really compared them in a while.

I do the same as PRS except the vision. TRS allows one free eye exam per year (or two?) and no one in our family needs glasses so I stick with TRS for medical/vision and AA dental. AA dental is about a third of the premiums with similar coverages.
