    Starting up tricare?!

    Advertisements
    Umm, after i enroll- when can i go to the doctors?!

    Is there a waiting period? Or can i just book and go straight in.

    I am just wondering cos i need to see the quack asap and i don't want to go and enroll tomorrow just to find out i have to wait. I'd rather just go to one out in the economy if thats the case.

    Ok cool- do i need to have a physical or anything.

    Dh told me i had to, but he also told me i had to "bend over and cough", whatever that means.. so i am not sure if he was joking or whatever.

    I don't like physicals ...

    I enrolled and it didn't take long.. I had to keep calling them b/c I was confused what forms to fill out.. I still don't even know what I did lol. for me I called a doctor's office around here and asked if they took tricare prime and if they did I went to that one.

    You are overseas, so just go to the military hospital. You'll need a copy of his orders most likely too. The Tricare office will walk you through it. If you can get him to go with it is best. You're supposed to get one ebfore you go overseas, but not sure if they will require you to get one now.

    Well im not even command sponsored, but apparently i can get tricare anyways- because i hold an id card. I'll go tomorrow, if he can take me.

    He was sposed to take me today, but he didn't cos he was busy.

    *closes mouth*

    I think i need to start a vent.
