    Neener Referral Question?

    Advertisements
    So, i keep reading on MSOS about people getting referrals to go to off base/post doctors. I called tricare to see what I would have to do to get a referral to a specialist (endocrinologist) and I was told that on Tricare Standard I don't need a referral, I can just go to any doctor listed on the triwest.com site.

    My question is, why do some of us need referrals, adn others don't? I am new and don't understand a lot of this military stuff yet.

    Because some of us are on Prime.


    With Prime, the aren't any co-pays, unless of course one is picking up a prescription in a civilian pharmacy.

    With my standard I don't have a co-pay either...I haven't had to get any prescriptions yet.
