The interim final rule published in the Federal Register on April 27, 2011, (76 FR 23479-23485) sets forth rules to implement TYA as required by Title 10, United States Code, Section 1110b. Included in this interim final rule were provisions for updating TYA premiums for each CY. By law, qualified young adult dependents are charged TYA premiums that represent the full government cost of providing such coverage. Until premiums can be based on actual TYA costs, TYA premiums are based on the actual costs during preceding CYs for providing benefits to a similarly-aged group of dependents that are TRICARE-eligible.
TMA has updated the monthly premiums for CY 2012 as shown below:

|Type of coverage||Monthly rate|
|TRICARE Standard Plans||$176|
