  • i am a retired navy veteran. I work at the Thomas Creek VA Hospital in Amarillo, Texas. With Nov. 12 being the beginning of the open enrollment period for benefits. I have asked the advisers at the VA for information about Tricare. I need to be able to talk to someone about whether my wife can sign up for Tricare or not. She is a retired teacher. I do not have any disabilities. Can I get get a phone number to be able to talk to someone about whether we can sign her up or not. I was told that Amarillo fell into the the Tricare west or Tricare Central division. My phone number is 806-654-5853.
