    Tricare Standard & The Gyno ??

    Advertisements
    Hello all! I just recently married my military sweetheart () and I'm still getting adjusted to the whole...everything... hahaha. It was coming time for my annual gynecologist visit, and I also needed to get a new birth control prescription. I'm on Tricare Standard. I looked on their website but stayed rather confused. Does Tricare cover any of a gyno visit? I know I will probably have a copay, which is fine, I just didn't know if it covered any of that. ALSO. Do I have to get a referral to even see the gynecologist? I know with Prime (I think...maybe?) you have to get a referral, but do you have to with standard?

    Thank you so much...its definietly been an information overload recently lol

    You do not need a referral for standard. Just make sure the doctor you go to accepts Tricare and a portion will be paid by Tricare.

    No. With standard you don't need referrals. I just picked a dr from the website. Read some reviews on her and made an appointment.

    It is covered but there will most likely be a copay. You don't need a referral, just make sure your doctor takes Tricare.
