Medicare enrollment while living in Panama

Hi there,My wife and I are planning a move to Panama in about a year, and will have Medicare and Tricare. She turns 65 this November, and will pick up her ID card here in the states. But I won't turn 65 until after we move. How do I get an ID card for Tricare for Life when I live down there? I haven't checked on this yet either, but does my monthly Tricare payment automatically drop in half when the wife goes on Medicare?Thanks,Bob
