    Help dermatologist?

    Advertisements
    So in the last 3-4 weeks i have been having some sort of new skin allergy that i can't figure out so i am going to go see my doctor this week. but anyway, does anyone know if tricare covers referals to an allergy specialist or dermatologist? i couldn't find anything in the handbook.
