    But I don't.
    [Between finishing driving school, homework, and wedding planning...

    Anyways...]

    Where I can find out about the BAH for Fort Carson? And can someone take a second to explain to me how health insurance works for Army?

    I know this is probably in here a hundred times...

    I am assuming you mean in CO. Since I don't know his rank from e1 to e4 the bah with dependents is 1018$, 1124$ for e5 and it goes up from there.

    Health insurance. Well it will depend on if you are on prime or standard. For prime everything is paid for with no co-pays except I guess if you get your prescriptions off base. You (from my experience) will be assigned a PCM at the base you are stationed at. If you are not at a base you see a dr that accepts tricare I believe. If you need something that the base does not cover you need a referral than tricare will cover it for you. If you are out of your region you are suppose to call for them to ok you to see a dr outside your region but I know most people just go to the er and call it good.

    If you are standard then there is a co-pay for all services. I have never been on this so I do not know how it works exactly. But from my understanding if you are on standard you get to pick all your health care providers. I was told once if you are on prime and you switch to standard you are not eligible for Prime for a year after going off prime.

    I hope this helps....I am sure there are others that can clear the standard up more. And I do believe there is tricare remote but don't know anything about that.
