    TRICARE PRIME

    Advertisements
    I have Tricare prime and live an hour away from the nearest military base. When I called Tricare they said my son can use civilian doctors but I cannot, I have to go on base. Does anyone else have experience with this?

    I wonder if it's because they don't have Peds services available.

    Weird. We are only 35 min from our base and they let my friends have off base PCM's closer to home all the time because we live further away.
