    Tricare question?

    Advertisements
    So I don't have a PCM yet. But I am enrolled in tricare prime. I tried to find a PCM yesterday that I could get into but they're booked out until febuary. Does anyone know if urgent care visit is completely covered or do I have to go to the ER in order to have this doctors visit covered? I'm super sick

    You need to call your PCP and have them recommend you go to the urgent care. If they cannot provide the care, the Urgent care is authorized to. I always follow a UC visit up with a call to TriCare to notify them.

    Call the nurse hotline and they will tell you if it will be covered and where to go...I hope you feel better soon!

    You could try calling Tricare and explain the situation and see if they will let you go off base

    She does not know TriCare personally. I think it would be premature in the relationship to call them "Sweetie".

    I don't have a doctor at all because mine doesn't take tricare so I have no one to recommend me to go there. I'm currently trying to build a fire lol and writing this on my phone but plan to call tricare if I didn't find the answer here
