Does Tricare cover uninsured motorist property damage?

"I'm active-duty military and I know Tricare will cover my medical bills if I'm in an accident with an at-fault, uninsured driver.

If I choose to decline uninsured motorist property damage with my insurance company, will Tricare cover my vehicle's damage?"

“If you can afford it, you should add uninsured motorist coverage, to your policy, including property damage coverage. While Tricare may cover your medical bills, they most likely will not cover any damage to your vehicle.
If you choose to decline uninsured motorist coverage, you would be responsible for paying out of pocket for any damages related to the accident.
