    What are the details, insurence for my mom would be expensive is hell. Isn't there a way to register her as a dependant and for me to just pay a small tricare fee? So she gets healthcare?

    Whats the details on here hospital care. I'm in afghanistan and don't really have to time to do the research or I would filter all bs on the government sites. I'm sure somone can give me the low down!

    If I can do this how do I go about it?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you are your mother's sole care giver.

    Something like that.. I think they call it LOCOPARENTIS or some weird shit like that. You'd have to talk with your admin section for that.

    i asked the DK's about this early in my enlistment. i was told i'd have to give her 51% of my pay for 6mos, then i could get her put on as a dependent.

    mind you, i was making about 900 a month back then. i just couldn't live on 450 every month.

    You can always just deposit that money into an account you too have access to. Easy loophole.

    You can also have her as a dependant if she is physically or medically unable to take care of herself.
