    Tricare Help?!?!

    Advertisements
    So my DH went to base and got myself and our daughters enrolled in tri care and I got this paper with the website on it. We are doing the kind where we can go to any doctor that accepts tricare we just have to pay part of it (I'm not sure the name of that one) but now I'm confused on what to do next? Can anyone help me? My DH deployed soon after we enrolled so I feel kind of lost and alone on this whole process

    You should have been sent a packet that told you how Tricare works and the doctors that accept Tricare in your area. If you did not receive that packet you can call Tricare and request one. You can then choose a physician and call to see if they are accepting new patients with Tricare as their insurance. If they are you can go to their office to pick up forms to fill out and to request all your medical records to be sent to them.

    you are on tricare standard- there is nothing to do but call a doctor, ask if they are accepting new patients and if they take tricare standard.
    tricare standard is very easy to use.
    I have been on it almost 2 years.
