Military divorce and health insurance

My divorce from my soon to be ex-spouse will be finalized in September. He is Active Duty Military and carries the insurance for our son. We have a separation agreement that states that I have full custody of our son, while his father gets visitation rights every other weekend and a few weeks during the summer and holidays. He is getting his military order to go overseas for about a year next year, but from what I have read is that in order for our son to have Tricare coverage he has to be with his father at least 60 days at a time. Is anyone familiar with this?

Medical insurance should still be available for the dependent child. You should contact a Tricare representative for specifics on your son’s policy.
