    important!!!

    Advertisements
    My son's school just called me and it sounds like he has a bladder infection. The only problem is his tricare is still in texas where his father is stationed. he hasnt had time to switch it up here where my hubby is stationed and they wont let me do it because i'm no longer one of his dependents. soo i have their tricare cards. can i still go to a doctor here and have it covered or do i have to pay for it. and where? an actual doctor or the ER on post?? what about medicine??? will it be covered???

    Yes you can go to the ER on post. If you have time however I would call the tricare office and let them know what's going on and that way they can tell you exactly where you can go.

    just take him to the post doc and give them his sponsors number. I had to take my kids to the doc in NC and we were in LA and there were no probs. You will need to get him his own ID card though in the future, at least i had to for mine.. good luck

    You can either call Tricare and get an authorization, or be seen by any ER, regardless of region. If you go to an ER, you do have to call them within 24 hours of being seen to tell them.
    Thank you Brentscrystal!

    his sponor info is different than yours so yes. My kids are 7, 5 and 4 and they have all had one for 2 years now. I am divorced and remarried and they are both military. It makes everything go so much smoother at the dr and pharmacy
