    Advertisements

    Call up every morning to get in for same day or see if you can go to urgent care; but, I wouldn't do the ER. Unless you have been this sick for over a number of days, I wouldn't do the ER.

    Yes you need to call/go to urgent care and if they can't help you they will send you to the ER. At least, that's what they did for me when I got sick. I didn't not have to pay for anything.

    Either go to the ER or if you only have a clinic call tricare and let them know you need authorization to go to an outside er (you can go but they have been known to refuse to pay if one goes without their ok) or to a urgent care clinic. They should get you either an appt or approval to go.
